Lord Leatherdale – Negro – El Corona
Everdale is by Lord Leatherdale, a popular young stallion in Holland that offers some of the best of German breeding with his pedigree. Lord Leatherdale presented three offspring that finished in the Top 10 at the 2011 PAVO Cup Finals and approved son Chippendale was the winner of the KWPN Stallion Show in early 2012.
Everdale’s damline is exceptionally strong. His dam, Aliska K, is an Elite Mare by Negro. Negro had a very successful FEI career and has numerous offspring competing internationally in the past few years. Most noteably is the 2012 Olympic Team and Individual Gold Medalist, Valegro. Due to quality of his offspring, Negro has been awarded the coveted Preferent status by the KWPN. The strength of the mares in this pedigree is magnified as we look further back. Everdale’s granddam is a Keur Preferent mare, while his great-granddam, Ilya, is a full sister to the KPWN approved stallion Havidoff and holds the Ster, Preferent and Prestatie predicates. Ilya has been very successful in breeding, with a small tour horse by Negro, an international show jumper by Hugo, and Z-level horses by Lancet and OO Seven.
Everdale is a well-developed stallion that exhibits a beautiful dressage type. He has a strong topline with a well-connected loin and good muscling. His gaits are scopey and powerful with abundant elasticity and in his KWPN report he was particularily praised for his canter. Everdale is honest and diligent in his work and gives his rider a very positive feeling. These traits contributed to Everdale being named Champion of his Stallion Performance Test in 2012 with a total of 87 points. All his scores were 8 or higher, and he received scores of 9 for the walk, canter, rideability, and attitude. It was these same traits that allowed Everdale to commandingly win the 2013 PAVO Cup for 4-Year Olds, topping a field of 92 horses and earning an impressive score of 10 from his guest rider.
His first foals have been in high demand. In 2013, Ice King Texel was named KWPN Top Dressage Colt and In Time was top selling colt at the SELL Auction in Deurne. His first US foal crop arrived in 2014 with Justifiable P (ds. Wolkentanz) and Jezebel S.E. (ds. Jazz) both earning First Premium status.

Canadian Breeders Shipping from Moore EquineTo help our Canadian breeders save on shipping expenses and the hassle of getting an import permit, Hilltop Farm ships a limited amount of frozen semen to Moore Equine in Calgary, Alberta at the start of each breeding season for distribution within Canada. We will ship four doses of frozen semen to Moore Equine for each contract booked prior to this group shipment. Doses will be distributed at a max of two doses per cycle. If a mare is not confirmed in foal after utilizing those doses, it would be necessary for the mare owner to follow our typical import procedure to obtain semen for any additional breeding cycles. All shipment requests for semen in Canada will still be sent to Hilltop Farm and follow Hilltop’s standard notification schedule. For more information on deadlines to be included in the group shipment to Canada or to inquire about frozen semen already located in Canada contact Brittany.
Mare Management RemindersAt Hilltop Farm we want to work closely with you and your veterinarian to ensure a successful breeding season and are available for questions at any time. The following information includes some basic suggestions as well as reminders on a few requirements for your breeding contract.

A Breeding Soundness Exam including a uterine culture is recommended, but not required, for all mares prior to breeding. If a mare fails to settle after two breeding cycles, Hilltop Farm will require a culture and cytology to be done at that time prior to any additional shipments of semen. We always recommend your vet checking your mare post-breeding to confirm ovulation. If a mare hangs on to a follicle longer than expected, it can be less expensive to ship additional semen than it would be to breed a second complete cycle. Getting your mare settled in foal is just the beginning. We recommend multiple pregnancy checks to help prevent cases of twins, misdiagnosed pregnancies, or lost time in the breeding season. The following schedule is what we recommend; only the first and fourth checks however are required by your breeding contract.
- 1st check (Required): 14-16 days post ovulation - optimum time for vet to pinch off a twin if more than a single ovulation is noted.
- 2nd check (Recommended): 28 days post ovulation – to confirm a viable pregnancy as the heartbeat normally appears by day 25.
- 3rd check (Recommended): 35-40 days post ovulation – to confirm maintained pregnancy prior to endometrial cup formation. Mares that slip foals early may not come back into heat.
- 4th check (Required): 55-60 days post ovulation – final confirmation of pregnancy in its critical first trimester.
Registration InformationYour mare’s registration and approval play just as important of a role as the stallion’s approvals when determining registration options for your foal. Please keep in mind that in order to register your foal with a specific association, your mare may first need to be presented to that registry for approval. In addition to the registries a stallion is approved with, there may be additional registration options based on your mare’s eligibility and the stallion’s credentials. If you are confused at all on registration options for a potential foal, please speak with Hilltop Farm and your breed registry PRIOR to booking your breeding.
