Florestan I Dressage Stallion

Wind of Change - Wind of Change descends from Florestan I (Fidelio - Furioso II), the Westphalian stallion that, in a very short time worked his way up to become the most influential great sire within European dressage horse breeding. The dam line goes back, via Wolfgang, Pion, Enfant de Normandie and Uppercut xx, to the mare Frelona (Artilleur) of NL dam line 013. Frelona is also grandam to the international show jumper Opstalans Power (Albert Voorn). From this family too comes the international show jumpers Aerobic (Wil Schellekens), Bon Ami (Eric Wauters) and Sevilla (Wim Schröder).

Wilotto - Sire Skydancer is a son of the Westphalian hallmark stallion Florestan I of the well-known Belgian Unart family that is famous for producing sport horses. Wilotto is, just as the KWPN stallion Nero (Balzflug), bred out of the ‘keur preferente prestatie’ mare Wilotte (Onyx) from NL dam line 113. Via the Onyx, the line goes back to the famous ‘keur preferente prestatie’ and ‘sport’ mare Liselot (Hurricane). Liselot we know as grandam to the Olympic dressage horse Biraldo (Rinaldo). The national dressage horse Cicero W (Ariban xx) and the well-known dressage stallion Jacardo (Elcaro) are also products of this dressage lineage.
