Aliana Easter Gift FMB
2005 | Oldenburg NA | Aliano / Sandsturm / Gardeoffizier / Winkel
Aliana Easter Gift FMB was a 2005 16.3hh Oldenburg mare by Aliano out of Sanna (Sandsturm / Gardeoffizier / Winkel). Aliana was full sister to Alejandro FMB (2007) and Arkoz FMB (2006). She was an incredible mover with great elasticity and freedom. While she is sadly no longer with us, her memory lives on in the offspring she gave to our breeding program. Aliana was the loving mother of Attitude FMB (2011) and Bora Bora FMB (2013).
Aliana’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.
Aliano’s sire, Aljano is half-brother to the stallion “Olympic Gestion Silvano N” (by a Tropica mare). Silvano N was ridden by Ellen Bontje for the Dutch Equestrian Team and sold to none other than the legendary Paul Schockemöhle in Germany. Aliano stamps his offspring with his type — with good conformation, super temperaments, and talent for a variety of disciplines.
In the fall of 2014, Aliano was presented to the AHHA after he had met his dressage performance requirements. He earned impressive scores and Judge Michael Gonell remarked that “Americans should be standing more stallions like Aliano that excel at both dressage and jumping.” Aliano’s versatility, talent, and temperament are consistently seen in his very typey offspring.
Aliana’s dam sire, Sandsturm, is the offspring of the fabulous jumper stallion Sendbote. Every dam in Sandsturm’s pedigree is States Premium Mare status, quite an accomplishment. Imported to the US/Canada from Germany. Limited breedings produced at least 9 approved stallion sons and many States Premium daughters. Sandsturm offspring are competing at the highest FEI levels in dressage and showjumping. Sandsturm was known for throwing his sound mind and excellent temperament as well.
Bora Bora FMB is a lovely, strong 2013 Oldenburg NA filly by Banderas (Balou du Rouet x Grannus x Beach Boy). Bora Bora was sadly orphaned with the loss of Aliana, but she thrived and blossomed into a beautiful, substantial filly with a great neck set and attractive movement.
