16.3h | 1996 | Dutch Warmblood Stallion
Jazz – Aktion – Transvaal
Color: Dark Brown
Pedigree, performance, and an incredibly strong record as a sire make Olivi a top contender for dressage breeders. Olivi was Reserve Champion of his KWPN Stallion Selection, earning scores of 8 for walk, trot, and talent as a dressage horse. His competition record includes placings in the PAVO Cup Finals, the French Young Rider Championships, and at the CDI Grand Prix level. In 2010, Olivi was award Keur status by the KWPN based on his exceptional production record.
Olivi’s sire Jazz is one of the most significant sires in modern dressage breeding. An international competitor himself, Jazz currently stands #5 on the WBFSH Dressage Sire Rankings and is the sire of international stars Johnson, Parzival, and Vancouver K. Olivi’s dam descends from the famous Utopia mare line, one of Holland’s prized mare families that produced famous stallions such as Vivaldi and Arko III. Olivi’s damsire Aktion competed in the European Championships, World Equestrian Games, and Olympics.
Olivi’s offspring have earned him the incredibly high Dressage Index of 175 and he has been previously ranked number 2 on the KWPN Sire Rankings and 18th on the WBFSH Dressage Sires list. He has sired many Keur/Elite daughters, two approved sons, and is the damsire for additional licensed stallions. His offspring are consistent winners from the Young Horse classes up through Grand Prix in both Europe and the US. In 2021, the Olivi offspring Ultimo was Reserve Champion at USDF Region 4 Grand Prix AA Championship, Zo’dan was Reserve Champion at the USDF Region 6 Intermediate AA Championship, and Exclusive was a Para Olympic Mount at the Toyko Olympics. The young Olivi offspring shined brightly in the 2022 breeding season with Onna Bugeisha G being named the USDF 3-Year Old Materiale Horse of the Year title, KWPN-NA All-Breeds 3-Year Old Materiale Champion, and the USDF Breeders Series North Central Materiale Championship and Only Diamonds SDSF being named the USDF Southern Series Filly Champion. To breed your next champion, start with a proven sire like Olivi.

Breeding Fees & Contracts
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.
Olivi is not available via cooled semen. Please see Frozen Semen for shipping costs and details on Olivi’s frozen semen.
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.
