12.2h | 2007 | Sport Pony Stallion
Ferguson Uno – Moelview Mohawk
It’s rare that we add a pony into our line-up, but the beautiful type that Harlequin gives his foals caught our attention. At just 12.2 hands, Woodbury’s Harlequin is an adorable option for sport pony breeders that are looking to emphasize jumping ability. His pedigree includes a high percentage of Welsh and Arabian blood, strongly consolidating his type and expression. Grandsire Neron stood in Holland and was approved with the NRPS. Neron was a very trainable and versatile talent, training both in dressage and jumping. Harlequin’s dam is herself a graded sports mare who has earned a Ster predicate. She was successful in both dressage, showjumping, and working hunter pony. Her sire, Moelview Mohawk, was highly successful showing in-hand and has produced both in-hand and undersaddle winners.
Harlequin was lightly shown in 2009 and 2010 with resounding success. He won 11 Champion or Reserve Champion placings in-hand and finished second at PoniesUK. Now being shown by a very young junior rider, Woodbury’s Harlequin shows a strong desire to please and is both bold and careful over fences.
The Harlequin foals, out of pony and horse mares, are athletic and typey and display their sire’s kind, intelligent character. This beautiful type and athleticism earned Harlequin a 4th place ranking on the British Breeding Futurity Sire Rankings for Sports Ponies in 2018 with a median score of 9.025. That same year, Harlequin was awarded the title of Futurity Elite Premium. His first North American born foal received an overall score of 8.2 at his ISR/Oldenburg inspection. In the 2018 Dressage at Devon Pony Division, Harley’s Angel finished Reserve Champion Pony Foal and full-sibling Harley’s Davidson was named Reserve Champion Pony Colt. With excellent quality frozen semen, we look forward to offering this pony stallion on a limited basis to US breeders.

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.

- 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.
