2013 WBFSH Sire Rankings

Each year breeders eagerly await the release of the World Breeding Federation’s Sire Rankings and this year we see a number of the stallions within the Hilltop Farm Stallion Line-up breaking into these prestigious rankings.  In the dressage standings, Negro (Ferro-Variant) reaches the Top Ten standings for the first year thanks to the international success of Valegro, Nintendo, Numberto, Netto, and Unico G.  Quite Easy (Quidam de Revel-Landgraf I) shows up on both the Show Jumping (ranked 78th) and Eventing (ranked 41st) Top 100 Lists.  Eventing breeders will also be happy to see Jaguar Mail (Hand in Glove xx – Laudanum xx) move up to the 15th place with top offspring such as Pin Up Mai, Risotto Mail, and Quatmandou contributing to his rankings.  Ramiro B (Calvani-Wendekreis) is in 34th place with 12 offspring competing internationally, including Ballynoe Castle RM. Hilltop Farm’s Riverman (Redfort-Landego) earns his first appearance on these ranking lists with R-Star of course leading the pack in offspring points.

Late in the afternoon of January 20th Royal Prince presented an acute colic and was immediately taken to New Bolton Center. Unfortunately due to complications discovered during surgery, the only humane choice was to euthanize him.

Kristi-Nunnink

Kristi Nunnink's default expression is a smile. It doesn't matter how hard she's working, what level she's riding or how the horse under her is performing -- her mouth curls faintly upward, unforced. It may just be a coincidence of facial structure, or it may be a product of years of habit. But either way, the expression fits her, because Nunnink may very well be the happiest rider at Rolex Kentucky. At 48, she's heading to her first CCI**** with her horse of a lifetime.
