FIRESTONE (JOHNSON X FLORENCIO I)
Firestone is the wonderful result of top-class dressage sires Johnson and Florencio. Ridden by Hans Peter Minderhoud, Johnson is among the world’s best dressage horses. He contributed to the golden team medal at the European Championships in Aachen 2015 and represented the Netherlands at the Olympic Games in Rio
de Janeiro. Florencio has been world champion as both a ve- and a six-year-old, while in 2015 the KWPN awarded Florencio as ‘Keur’ sire. Florencio deserved this great title thanks to his offspring performing at Grand Prix level and the talented KWPN approved stallion Charmeur. The thoroughbred Painters Row xx and the valuable Saluut strengthen Firestone’s pedigree.
Firestone was bred out of the famous Bella- damline, which produced many successful showjumpers and dressage horses. Firestone’s full sister El also earned no less than 81.5 points the KWPN Mare Test and achieved an amazing score of 95 points for her trot at the KWPN Mare Inspections. As a 3-year-old, Firestone stood out due to his fantastic con rmation and movements, which earned him the title of reserve champion at the KWPN Stallion Show. Afterwards, Firestone earned 82.5 points in the KWPN Performance Test and makes a great impression with Joyce Lenaerts in the KWPN Stallion Competition. In Ermelo Firestone nished fth, in Roosendaal he ended up fourth and at the last competition in Zuidbroek, Firestone became third. Firestone’s rst foals seem promising: they show charm, charisma and great movements!
