2016 | Oldenburg NA | Aliano / Amiro / Wandersmann xx / Trapper
Ariano FMB is an absolutely gorgeous registered and branded Oldenburg NA colt by Aliano out of our Premium Oldenburg mare, Alexis (Amiro / Wandersmann xx / Trapper). Ariano is full brother to Aragon FMB (2013), Arzio FMB (2015), and Atazio FMB (2017). He is a cherry bay with four socks and a star and snip. Ariano displays the incredible movement and perfect temperament that has made this repeat breeding a success. Ariano was snapped up and sold to the USA at only three days old.
Ariano’s imported Holsteiner sire, Aliano, was in Grand Prix Dressage training and has competed successfully up to the Intermediare I level. Aliano comes from the famous STAMM 318D2, which has a strong reputation in breeding and sport. It is the direct motherline of the stallions Corofino I and II, Diorado, Diarado among many others. Ariano’s dam, Alexis, is a Premium Oldenburg mare who scored 9’s at her Mare Performance Test. She is 16.3hh and a beautiful black/dark bay with three socks and an interesting blaze. Alexis is a very kind, forgiving mother who’s laid back temperament and unflappable attitude is passed onto her foals.
Ariano’s dam sire is the Dutch Warmblood stallion, Amiro by Ramiro Z. Imported from Holland, Amiro was USDF Champion at 4th level, and BC Advanced Level Reserve Champion in 1990. In 1991 he was Reserve Champion at Spruce Meadows and qualified for the Pan American Games Canadian Team, qualifying with every test he performed in 1991. He was long-listed for the Canadian Dressage Team and was rated among the top 10 advanced dressage horses in Canada. In 1995 Amiro was presented to the Oldenburg NA and was the winner of that approval, based on his performance in dressage. All of his foals that were presented went premium. Amiro was well known and loved for his friendly, willing temperament. He stamped his get with his fabulous attitude and his fluid, powerful, correct movement.
Ariano is truly an amazing colt. He is always so sweet and happy to see me. Ariano is very curious about new things. He enjoys going on walks and follows me around wherever I want to go. He is full of personality and he is very handsome and flashy. I love his coloring and his movement is beautiful; he prances around and flips lead changes with ease. He is a joy to be around. He is my horse of a lifetime and I am so excited to see our bond continue to grow. We get to have many firsts together and it will make it so much better when I finally get to sit in the saddle on his back and learn to dance with him.Shauna R.
