Glorioso Noir

17.2h | 1997 | Hanoverian Stallion

Glorieux – Grundstein I – Landsknecht

A tall and eye catching black stallion, Glorioso Noir’s impressive looks draw you in and his impeccable pedigree make him a consideration for dressage and jumper breeders alike. His sire Glorieux was a Bundeschampionate winner; as well as winner of his stallion licensing and Reserve Champion of his Stallion Performance Test. Glorieux has both FEI level dressage horses and jumpers to his credit. His dam Gross Liebe is a half sibling to popular stallion Landkoenig. In addition to Glorioso Noir, Gross Liebe has produced three additional licensed sons, including a full-sibling to Glorioso Noir. Her sire Grundstein I was a successful dressage horse and proved to be an exceptional producer with multiple S level jumpers to his credit.  

Glorioso placed equally as well in the dressage and jumping portions of his 100-Day Stallion Test. He competed successfully in young horse dressage classes and went on to be a well decorated hunter, earning the title of 2007 AHS Regular Working Hunter Champion. True to the versatility in his pedigree, his offspring have exceled in multiple rings. In the hunter ring, Golden Siren HU has multiple division championships to her credit in both the Adult Amateur Hunters and Children’s Hunters, including the 2014 USHJA Zone 2 Amateur Owner Hunter Championship. In the dressage ring, Golden Darling HU has competed through Intermediaire I.  In 2021, Glorious Rohse HU was named the Mature Horse Champion and Mare Champion of the NEDA Breed Show and went on to finish 7th in the USDFBC East Coast Mare Championship later that month at Dressage at Devon. Glorios Noir’s offspring consistently inherit his long legs and well set neck.

Mare Information
Mare Management Reminders

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.

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.
