With our growing online audience and the ever-changing advancements in technology, we partnered with the team of innovators and online engineers at www.EqGraphics.com to bring you what is likely, the most comprehensive stallion website in the industry.
With well over 1,000 pages, all designed to display beautifully on any computer or mobile device, our goal of reinventing our website to match the superior quality of our horses and services has become a reality.
Every stallion is presented with their own in-depth informational page, featuring a retina-display image gallery, high-definition video, their most notable accomplishments and current news headlines.
Breeders now have full access to each stallion’s availability, downloadable breeding forms, shipping guidelines and important information about breeding your mare and registering your future foal, all in one convenient location...

We are proud of the many achievements Hilltop-sired offspring are accomplishing and one of our goals with the creation of the new website was to develop a special resource to acknowledge the dedicated owners and breeders who provide these horses with incredible opportunities for success in breeding and sport. Our robust new offspring section, now features over 1,000 individual offspring pages, each with their own photo gallery, videos and accomplishments. These extensive offspring pages also serve as an essential tool when considering stallion options for your mare.
To search and view offspring, simply click on a stallion for an instant overview of his offspring. Each image leads you to a detailed offspring page where you will find additional photos, videos, accomplishments and even testimonials from their breeders, owners and trainers.

2013 chestnut Hanoverian gelding out of the Hanoverian mare Wiesling (Wolkentanz). Qwin is a bold, personable gelding with loads of self-confidence, lovely gaits and excellent manners and should mature to 16.2 hh. Qwin’s dam Wiesling (Wolkentanz x MS Dividende) Joan is from a long line of superior sport horses; her dam’s sire is the renowned ES Domingo.Her sire is Wolkentanz- one of the successful sons of the legendary sire Weltmeyer. Wolkentanz was the champion stallion at the Verden licensing in 1993 and 1994 won the 3 year old stallion classification at the Federal Championship of German Riding Horses and was runner up in the stallion performance test scoring 140.53 in dressage. At her mare inspection, she received 8′s on head/neck, saddle position, typiness, femininity, and impulsion/elasticity. Entered into the main stud book. Schooled to Third Level, she was shown at Training Level and scored consistently in the high sixties to mid-seventies, with consistent scores of 8 for gaits.
