Fiti’s desire to perform, compact size, and talent for collection, have allowed his amateur rider to develop him up the levels from First Level to winning at Grand Prix in just a few years’ time earning multiple All-Breeds awards in both the Adult Amateur and Open divisions from Prix St. Georges through Grand Prix’ and successfully competing at the CDI level. In 2021, Fiti competed at his first US Dressage Finals earning a 3rd and 4th place in the Grand Prix Freestyle AA Championship and Grand Prix AA Championship respectively. Fiti’s winning ways continued in 2022 and 2023 earning him the USDF All-Breeds Championship for AA Grand Prix for a fifth consecutive year.
Fiti AL has a natural talent for the collected work with piaffe, passage, and pirouettes seeming like a game for him. 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 is approved for breeding with the ANCCE and IALHA, and due to his competition record and quality he became the first PRE to be approved by the Oldenburg Verband and the American Rhineland Studbook. His oldest offspring are now undersaddle and are showing their sire’s intelligence and trainability. In 2023, Salvador ESH ranked #5 for Materiale 3-Year Old Colts/Geldings. The PRE x warmblood crosses continue gaining interest around the globe, Fiti appeals to both Iberian and warmblood breeders seeking an outcross for their breeding programs.

Breeding Fees & Contracts
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 14-16 day pregnancy check, please have your vet complete the Mare Breeding Passport received with your semen shipment and return it to Hilltop Farm. Any changes in pregnancy status after the 14-16 day check must be communicated to Hilltop Farm immediately. 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.
Fiti is not available via cooled semen. Please see Frozen Semen for shipping costs and details on Fiti AL’s frozen semen.
Registration & Futurity 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.
