An exciting addition for North American breeders, Iceman de Muze an excellent performance record, proven pedigree, and an exceptional production record. Iceman has an extensive FEI performance record under multiple riders through 1.60m.  As a 6-Year Old he represented the Netherlands at the World Breeding Championships. Iceman continued to convincingly move up the levels, advancing to the CSI2* and CSI3* levels with top placings at premier shows across Europe. Imported to the US in 2019, Iceman and Schuyler Riley took top placings at WEF, Devon, New York, Tryon, and Lexington. In 2021, Iceman was paired with young rider Elli Yeager with great success at Grand Prix and U25 Grand Prix.

Iceman’s sire Erco van’t Roosakker is an accomplished Grand Prix competitor, with top finishes at the CSI5* level, Nations Cup Teams, European Championships, and World Cup qualifiers. Erco combines the proven jumping blood of Darco and Kannan. Iceman’s dam has an extensive competition record through the 1.45m jumpers, has produced three licensed stallions, and has multiple competition horses to her credit. Damsire For Pleasure was a medalist at the European Championships, World Cup Finals, and Olympics.

Iceman has a limited number of offspring to date but they’re making their mark in the show ring. To date, Iceman has 13 FEI competitors to his record, Icen and HHS Ice Flo both competed at the World Breeding Championships, and Isla de Muze is competing at 1.60m. In North America, we’re seeing his offspring show successfully in the jumpers, hunters, and equitation rings.

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.

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.
