Galant du Serein – Rohdiamant – Warkant
A handsome stallion with an abundance of charm, Gallant Reflection was Reserve Champion of his 70-Day Stallion Testing with 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. In 2018, Gallant Reflection ranked in the Top 10 for the USDF Horse of the Year standings for Intermediate II.
Gallant Reflection’s sire descends from exceptional French breeding. The jumping ability in this pedigree is expected, but they are also 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 as he is free of S, D, and F bloodlines and that outcross diversity is essential for overall development of sport horse breeding.
With only a few offspring to date, we are already seeing that Gallant Reflection adds elegance, a beautiful expression, and good elasticity combined with their sire’s excellent character. The oldest Gallant Reflection son is already winning at Training and First Level with scores in the 70s. He can complement a wide variety of mares and with a strong jumping aptitude and excellent technique can cross-over to the hunter market as well.

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.
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.
