Noble Roi xx – Figaro – Apollo xx
Noble Champion’s show record highlights his undeniable talent for show jumping with numerous wins at Grand Prix and S-Level in Europe. Noble Champion finished 3rd in the Jumping portion of his 100-day test in 1992 and went on to be the first Hanoverian Verband approved Jumping Improvement Sire in 1997. He was in the ribbons over 80 times at the S Level, with 17 Grand Prix wins. He was named the 1998 Oldenburg Showjumper Stallion of the Year and, in 2000 he was the VTV Oldenburg Stallion Champion.
Noble Champion’s sire Noble Roi was a Thoroughbred stallion approved Hanoverian, Trakehner, Oldenburg, and Holsteiner. Noble Roi produced multiple S level jumpers; as well as Grand Prix dressage horses. Dam sire Figaro also has multiple upper level dressage horses and jumpers to his credit.
Noble Champion’s jumper offspring are well known, with international jumpers such as Marcus Ehnings’ Noble Savage H as the most successful international competitor to his credit. With powerful gaits and good suspension, his offspring have shown versatile talent with success in the jumpers, eventers, hunters, and dressage alike. The % of Thoroughbred blood in his pedigree is of special interest to event breeders. Daughter Nobless Oblige competed through Intermediate Level eventing, earning top ten finishes at the American Eventing Championships at Preliminary and Intermediate. In the dressage ring, Daughter Noble Destiny competed at the USEF Young Horse Championships for 5-Year Olds and her offspring have been very successful at breed shows. His youngest offspring had very good success in the Dressage Sport Horse Breeding in 2021, as Noble Gin was the USDFBC Southern Series Reserve Champion Mare.

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.
- KWPN-NA: Offspring out of KWPN-NA mares and by stallions approved with an Erkend Studbook (such as Noble Champion) are eligible for Register A papers.
