Johnson – Negro – Wisconsin
The eye-catching black stallion Jayson has much to offer beyond just his good looks. He also has an FEI pedigree filled with top performers that will catch any dressage breeder’s attention. Under Hans Peter Minderhoud, his sire is Johnson who had an impressive career including the World Equestrian Games, Olympics, and European Championships. As a sire, Johnson is proving equally impressive and is currently ranked #1 in the world on the WBFSH Dressage Sire rankings, one placing ahead of his sire. Johnson’s sire, Jazz, is ranked #2 in on both the KWPN and WBFSH ranking lists for dressage sires in 2020.
Jayson’s dam, Zamora B, has already produced 2 approved sons as well as an Elite and Ster daughter. Zamora’s oldest offspring Esperanto was winner of the USDF Region 1 Intermediate I Open Championship and Reserve Champion at Prix St. Georges in 2021, after making his FEI debut at the CDI1* at Dressage at Devon. Zamora’s sire is the revered stallion Negro. An impressive FEI competitor himself, he has an incredible record for siring Grand Prix horses, including Olympic and World Cup Champion Valegro.
Jayson convincingly won his initial NRPS Stallion Performance Test and went on to complete the KWPN Short-Term Performance Test earning multiple scores of 8 or above and 9’s for rideability and attitude. Jayson placed 6th in the PAVO Cup Finals in 2018 and 11th in 2019. He was also an Alternate for the WBFSH Young Horse Championships. We’ve been very pleased with Jayson’s early foals and look forward to the start of their performance careers in the coming years. The KWPN recommends Jayson for breeders looking to add size, rideability, and impulsion to the gaits.

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.
- GOV: Jayson offspring out of Oldenburg approved mares are eligible for registration with the GOV with payment of a Foreign Sire Fee.
- ISR/OldenburgNA: Offspring of many of the European stallions may be eligible for registration upon the mare owner’s completion of a Foreign Stallion Permit.
