Finding the ‘good ones’ early is often a driving passion for anyone hoping to launch a future star. Ingo Pape and Scott Hassler discovered Fiorano when he was only one week old while on a tour evaluating Rousseau’s first foal crop in Germany. Harmony Sporthorses quickly agreed to buy the colt and the plan was set to raise this promising youngster in Hemmoor under the care of the highly capable team at Hengststation Pape. At the 2007 Hanoverian Stallion Licensing, Fiorano quickly became a crowd favorite with his very active hindleg and overwhelming presence. He was named to the “premium ring” which was particularly impressive given his sire was a non-Hanoverian. His outstanding gaits and rideability allowed him to readily claim the title Champion at his 70-day-test in Muenster-Handorf where he won with an impressive overall score of 136.12 points and a dressage index of 141.7 points. He was awarded seven scores of ‘9’ or higher in his results in addition to a 9.5 from the test rider.
Fiorano is a very compact stallion with harmonious conformation and an extremely refined head. He is a powerful, buoyant mover with a very active, carrying hind leg –nearly the perfect formula for success in today’s competitive sport. Collection comes very naturally for Fiorano who has excelled quickly in his training. He was winning 3rd level classes early on in 2011 and readily schooling all the Grand Prix movements by the end of 2012. In 2013, his competitions will gear towards the German National Prix St. George 7-9 year-old Championships, the “Nuernberger Burg-Pokal,” We eagerly anticipate his success though look forward to his debut in the Grand Prix arena where he can shine through his spectacular natural highlights of the piaffe and passage.
Fiorano has already demonstrated his ability to produce athletic, rideable horses. His first son was licensed and approved in Hanover in 2011. Fascino (Fiorano – Ehrentanz – Florestan I) performed with convincing talent at his 30-day-test in Moritzburg, earning an overall index of 130 points, with 8.5 in dressage and 7.63 in jumping.

Fiorano’s sire Harmony’s Rousseau is one of the best sons of Olympic Ferro, the highly decorated dressage stallion ridden by Coby van Baalen to multiple Silver medals finishes in international games. Rousseau produced his own Silver Medal finish at the the World Championships for Young Horses in Verden as a 5-year old. He also won the Divoza Cup PAVO Cup as a young stallion, earning 10’s for his rideability from the internationally acclaimed guest judges. Rousseau has produced an impressive group of sons, including three Champions of the KWPN Stallion Show: Wamberto (2006); Blue Hors Zack (2007) and Ampere (2008). Each were Champions of their performance tests with record scores and results. Rousseau also has offspring at only 7 and 9 years of age winning at PSG and Grand Prix in Europe, including at prestigious 5* CDI’s.
Fiorano’s damline contributes further outstanding movement, elasticity and superb rideability. Fiorano’s damsire is the Hanoverian stallion Rotspon who is a son of the notorious Rubinstein. Rotspon was the unprecedented winner of his stallion performance test scoring 148.82 points in the dressage category. Rotspon’s offspring are highly sought after in Germany. Rotspon has over 17 licensed sons and over 606 offspring in competition. Rotspon’s sire needs no introduction as one of the top producing dressage stallions of all time, Rubinstein. Rubinstein had an amazing performance career with 40 wins at Grand Prix level and was a member of the 1996 Olympic team. Not only did he have an outstanding performance career but his breeding career was also exceptional, leaving 89 state premium mares, 66 approved stallions and a long list of top auction horses and Grand Prix winners to his carry forth his legacy.
Fiorano’s grand damsire is the world renowned Lauries Crusader. Lauries Crusador has had a highly significant impact on the dressage-breeding world. In 2007 he was the Hanoverian Stallion of the Year, the first time a Thoroughbred ever received this coveted award. Laurie’s Crusador has sired over 546 competition horses whose earnings exceed 500,000 Euros. He also produced the 1999 Bundeschampion Londonderry, sire of many outstanding performance horses and such significant stallions as Locksley I-III, Liberty Gold, and Lemony’s Nicket.
