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.
Hilltop always looks forward to hearing updates and show results on all of the stallion’s offspring. If you haven’t shared a recent update on your Hilltop Farm offspring, we’d love to hear from you. Here’s to another wonderful show season in 2014!
The USEF has recently announced their 2005 Champions! Hilltop Farm’s Elite Hanoverian stallion Contucci has earned the title 2005 USEF Leading Sire Dressage Breeding. Further, Jane MacElree/ Hilltop Farm has been awarded the 2005 USEF Leading Owner Dressage Breeding title from the success of the Hilltop bred youngsters in sport.
With great sadness, we must announce that our beautiful Holsteiner stallion Cor Noir was put down November 3, 2003 for humane reasons. Cor Noir gave tremendous quality to our Hilltop Farm breeding program, producing our top broodmares and the foundation for so much of our success today.
Hilltop Articles & Interviews
For many Warmblood enthusiasts, just the mention of the famous stallion Riverman is enough to send chills down their spines. The stunning grey Holsteiner, who currently stands at stud at Hilltop Farm in Colora, Maryland, was the Reserve Champion at his stallion licensing, and was a Verband stallion in Germany for the first part of his life.
Wisconsin breeders work on one foal at a time. Shannon (a competitive dressage rider) and Doug Langer, DVD, (a partner of the Wisconsin Equine Clinic and Hospital) have bred Hanoverians for 10 years at their Maple Run Farm in Helenville, Wisconsin. They arrived on the international stage when their homebred Cabana Boy represented the United States at the 2007 World Young Horse Championships.
