Galant du Serein – Rohdiamant – Warkant
A handsome stallion with an abundance of charm, Gallant Reflection impresses even further when you watch him compete. Reserve Champion of his 70-Day Stallion Testing, Gallant Reflection earned an overall score of 127 points. He finished 2nd in the dressage phase and 4th in the jumping – a truly versatile talent. In 2015, Gallant Reflection was the USEF Six-Year Old National Champion. As a seven-year old, he placed in the Top 6 at the USEF Developing Prix St. Georges National Championships, and finished in the Top 20 for USDF Horse of the Year standings for both Prix St. Georges and Intermediate I. Gallant Reflection debuted at Intermediate II in 2017 and will be showing the Developing Grand Prix in the coming year.
Gallant Reflection’s sire descends from exceptional French breeding. The jumping ability in this pedigree is expected, but they are also be very successful dressage horses as seen in sire Galant du Serein. Galant du Serein competed at the top of International dressage sport including the Olympic Games, World Equestrian Games, and World Cup Finals. On the dam’s side of Gallant Reflection’s pedigree we find a strong dressage influence through stallions like Rohdiamant and Warkant. He offers a unique outcross option for many mares and that outcross ability is essential for overall development of breeding.
With only a few offspring to date, we are already seeing that Gallant Reflection adds refinement, correctness, and elasticity combined with their sire’s excellent character. His oldest son, Gryphon’s Gold HU, has been consistently winning with scores in the 70’s at Training Level this year.

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.

- 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.
