Jondo – Empaque – Revoltoso VII

Fiti is one of those special characters that immediately draws you in when you meet him. His intelligence and desire to perform, combined with his compact size and talent for collection, have allowed his amateur rider to develop him easily up the levels. In just a few years, this pair went from First Level to winning consistently at Grand Prix.  In 2018, Fiti earned 3rd for Prix St. Georges and 2nd for Intermediate I for USDF All-Breeds (PRE) AA at Prix St. Georges and competed in his first CDI competitions. In 2019, Fiti had a strong season at Grand Prix.  He finished the season 1st for USDF All-Breeds (PRE) AA, 3rd for All-Breeds (PRE) Open, and 7th for Adult Amateur Horse of the Year Standings at Grand Prix.

Fiti’s full-brother has also been developed up to the Prix St. Georges level with another amateur rider in the US.  

Fiti AL has a natural talent for the collected work with piaffe, passage, and pirouettes seeming like a game for him. However he offers more than just a talent for collection.  His compact size combined with elastic and supple movement give his rider a very good feeling.  Fiti is intelligent and sensible and an absolute pleasure to work around. 

Fiti AL was already approved for breeding with the ANCCE and IALHA, but due to his competition record and quality he was the first PRE to be approved by both the Oldenburg Verband and the American Rhineland Studbook in 2018.  His early breeders have been both Iberian horse breeders as well as warmblood breeders seeking an outcross for their breeding programs.  The PRE x warmblood crosses have been gaining a lot of interest lately in both the US and Europe.

Mare Information
Mare Management Reminders

At 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.

Following your mare’s 55-60 day pregnancy check, please have your vet finish completing the Mare Breeding Passport and return it to Hilltop Farm by September 15th. This Passport is used in all stallion reports to various breed registries and is used to generate a Breeding Certificate so that you can register your foal.

Registration Information

Your 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.
