2013 Breeders Award Program Winners
Hilltop’s Breeders Awards Program has been in effect since 1996 and we’re happy to see the program growing each year. This unique program was designed to honor our breeders annually for outstanding competitive success with their Hilltop Farm stallion offspring by offering Award Certificates towards future breedings to a Hilltop Farm stallion. In 2012, we opened the program up to not only breeders but also to the current owners of offspring sired by Hilltop Farm stallions. We’re very excited to announce that Hilltop Farm is awarding over $11,000 in Breeder Awards Certificates from the 2013 show results. A combination of 18 breeders and 17 owners received certificates this year. While we can’t highlight all of the award winners here, we would like to congratulate all the winners and highlight a few of the winners here.
- Reebok (Royal Prince x EM Andromache/Arrian),finished the 2013 season with multiple USDF Region 4 Year-End Championships, earning both his breeder, Diane Vickery, and his owner/rider, Jennifer Roth, Breeder Rewards Certificates.
- Cold Smoke (Contucci x Amie/Malichit), owned and bred by Liz Hirschland, was the USDF Region 5 Adult Amateur Intermediaire I Reserve Champion.
- Riverside (Riverman x Isabella/Ideal) was the 2013 USHJA Zone 8 Hunter Breeding 2-Year Old Horse of the Year, earning his owner, Hailley Joyner, and his breeder, Lynn Marohn, Breeder Rewards Certificates.
