We feel very fortunate to have acquired the lovely Dutch mare Uforia in late 2010.  Under owner Nick Wagman, Uforia (reg. Unicum-D) quickly climbed the dressage ranks.  In 2008 and at only 7 years old, Uforia competed at the USEF National Intermediaire National Championships.  She placed 6th in the Prix St. Georges and 8th in the Intermediaire I and the Freestyle.  The following year, Uforia made the move to Intermediaire II and Grand Prix with scores in the mid to high 60’s and top finishes at competitions in California. Uforia’s competition highlights include:

  • 2007 consistent winner at Third Level
  • 2008 Dressage Affaire CDI ~ 2nd in Prix St. Georges & 4th in Intermediaire I
  • 2008 Del Mar CDI ~ winner Intermediaire I & 2nd in Prix St. Georges
  • 2008 US Intermediaire I National Championships/Festival of Champions
  • 2008 CDS Championships ~ Reserve Champion Prix St. Georges
  • 2008 USDF Region 7 Championships ~ Reserve Champion Prix St. Georges
  • 2008 USDF Region 7 Championships ~ 5th place Intermediaire
  • January 2009 Dressage Getaway ~ 1st place Open Intermediaire II
  • February 2009 Dressage Getaway ~ 1st place Open Intermediaire II
  • April 2009 Del Mar National ~ 1st place Open Grand Prix

Uforia is by the Preferent Dutch Stallion Negro who has been a valued addition to our International Stallion line-up for many years. Negro was himself a highly successful competitor. He was Reserve Champion of his Stallion Performance Test and won the Zwolle Stallion Show as both a five and six-year old. He debuted at Prix St. Georges the following season and showed particular talent for piaffe, passage, and pirouette’s. Grandsire Ferro has been one of the most successful international dressage stallions in history, including medals at the World Equestrian Games, European Championships, and Olympics. The talent for the Grand Prix clearly passes through the generations and we see many Negro offspring winning at Grand Prix, including the Olympic, World Cup, & WEG Gold Medalist and World Record Holder, Valegro.  Uforia’s dam sire is Fruhling (aka Landjonker), an advanced level showjumper by the highly regarded Landadel. Fruhling’s influence has been well established in Europe and he has sired 10 approved sons in Germay. Fruhling’s damline (KWPN breeding family 726) has produced the top international dressage horse Brillant as well as many approved stallions. Uforia offers a new outcross for all of Hilltop’s stallions. In 2013 she was accepted by both the AHS and ISR/Oldenburg registries. She has also received her sport predicate from the KWPN.  With the arrival of her first foal in the spring of 2014, she has proven to be an excellent mother.  Uforia definitely gifts very powerful and expressive movement to her offspring.  As one judge commented at the inspection of her first foal, ‘This is the type of movement dressage riders want.’  We feel very lucky to have this special mare in Hilltop’s broodmare herd.
