16.3h | 2011 | Dutch Warmblood Stallion
Lord Leatherdale – Negro – Ahorn
Glamourdale is the stallion that everyone is talking about! He was named Champion of the 2014 KWPN keuring and placed second at his Stallion Performance Test, earning scores of 9 for his canter and balance and 8.5 for trot, elasticity, rideability, and talent as a dressage horse. In both his 4-year old and 5-year old years, Glamourdale finished in the top ten of the PAVO Cup Finals and finished 10th in the WBFSH World Championships as a 5-Year Old. In 2018, Glamourdale commandingly won FEI World Championships for Young Horses where he earned scores of 9.8 for his trot and a 10 for the canter. His upward trajectory has continued into 2019 where he confidently made the move up to the PSG/Intermediate work and won at Aachen, one of the world’s most prestigious shows, with scores of 77% and 80%. His national Grand Prix debut came with a massive score of 77.9%!
Glamourdale’s sire, Lord Leatherdale, was Reserve Champion of his Stallion Performance Test and is a successful FEI competitor. Glamourdale’s dam has been a strong producer including two Elite daughters and she is a half-sister to the approved Grand Prix stallion Numberto. Damsire Negro was a very promising FEI horse whose offspring are winning internationally at Grand Prix, including the Olympic Gold Medalist, World Cup Winner, and World Equestrian Games Gold Medalist, Valegro.
Glamourdale and his offspring have been well received by breeders. Glamourdale had 12 sons from his first foal crop selected for the 2018 KWPN Stallion Licensing Pre-Selection. In 2020 the Glamourdale son Kuvasv was selected to represent Holland in the World Breeding Championships for Young Horses and, in the US, Kyro placed 8th in the US National Young Horse Championships for 5-Year Olds. Glamourdale’s offspring are winning at inspections and riding horse competitions already. With size, power, and fantastic scope to the movement, Glamourdale offers the very qualities dressage breeders are seeking.

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.
