OLIVI Selle Français KWPN Oldenburg Z

1996 - KWPN - DARK BAY - 1m72

Owner's word

Olivi is a wonderful opportunity for breeders!  His progeny of International Grand-Prix level is remarkable, not only physically, but also in terms of willingness and aptitude.  Olivi also has several sons worldwide approved as stallions. Olivi's imprint in the genetics of many current stallions testifies to his high genetic value: Jovian (KWPN), UB40, Apache, Grand Galaxy (KWPN), Global player (Oldenburg), UB40 (KWPN), Janeiro Platinium (KWPN), ... 
For several years, Olivi has been ranked 2nd best KWPN sire behind his own sire, JAZZ, having acceded in 2017 to 18th position in the World Best Dressage Stallions Ranking (source:  World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses - WBFSH).
Along with his modern, very chic look and excellent movement (judged 8 for walk/trot and 9 for canter), he transmits an ample walking pace, a steady trot showing elevation and suppleness and a remarkably balanced powerful canter.  Prior to his entry at Le Feuillard Stud, OLIVI triggered off tremendous success with KWPN and Oldenburg breeders, who were disappointed to see him exported.  He now stands at stud in the United States.
Olivi is also an interesting cross with spirited mares for breeding eventing horses.
He boasts an excellent fertility rate for his frozen semen.  Osteo-articular status: Excellent.
Approved to sire in the French Saddle Horse [Selle-Français], KWPN and Oldenburg Studbooks.
WFFS Free.

In 2006, Olivi won the Small Tour in Uden.

In 2007 and 2008, Olivi is the Leading Sire of Dutch competing offspring aged between 7 and 9 with an index of 168 (CD 85%).

In 2008, he finished 4th at the French Young Riders Championship, St-Georges level, ridden by Raphael THOMAS

In 2009, he competed nationally and internationally with excellent results, notably winning the A7 tests and finishing 2nd in the St-Georges at the Paris Etrier; winning the A7 and Intermediary 1 tests in Royan; winning the A7 test and the St-Georges at the Ile-de-France Championship in Fontainebleau; winning the A7 test in Le Mans; and finishing 2nd in the A7 test and the St-Georges in Jardy.

In February 2010, Olivi  was invited to Hertogenbosch by the KWPN Studbook to be presented to Dutch breeders.

In 2010, he participated in various shows in the Netherlands before returning to France to enable fabrication of frozen semen at Le Feuillard Stud and to compete in the St Lo dressage tests ridden by Maxime COLLARD, finishing 2nd in the Prix St-Georges.


In February 2011, Olivi  was awarded the "Keur" predicate by the KWPN Studbook.

The "Keur" predicate is awarded when a stallion’s offspring proves to be excellent compared to that of other stallions with regard to performance and conformation.  In practice, this implies that a stallion must have a performance index superior to 140 with a high reliability percentage.  The ability for the stallion to transmit good conformation is a mandatory factor for being awarded the predicate.  A stallion, nevertheless fulfilling all the performance conditions for receiving the "Keur" predicate, can be stripped thereof if he fails to transmit good conformation to his progeny.  The KWPN stallion selection committee agreed that OLIVI (JAZZ x AKTION) deserved the "Keur" predicate based on his high genetic value and on the qualities that he has transmitted to his offspring aged 7 and over and which have performed at top international level.

2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017

In 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017, Olivi is nominated 2nd best KWPN stallion based on his genetic value with more than 90% reliability and a dressage index of 181.

In 2017, Olivi is 18th best world dressage stallion in the WBFSH Ranking.



Olivi's imprint in the genetics of many of today's stallions testifies to his high genetic value : Jovian (KWPN), Grand Galaxy (KWPN), Global player (Oldenburg), UB40 (KWPN), Janeiro Platinium (KWPN), ...
