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.
The Lamplight Equestrian Center showgrounds were an exceptional stage for the USEF Young Horse National Championships this past weekend and we could not be happier with the performances of Hemmingway (Hofrat - Archipel) and Qredit Hilltop (Quaterback - Dream of Glory).
Once again we made the long drive out to the beautiful Lamplight Equestrian Center in Wayne, IL for the Markel/USEF Young Horse Championships. Michael qualified two horses for the Championships this year.

The manicured grounds of the Lamplight Equestrian Center were superb as was the quality of the equine competitors at the 2009 Markel/United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) National Young Horse Dressage Championships and the 2009 USEF National Developing Horse Dressage Championship, sponsored by the Dutta Corporation and Performance Sales International.
The dramatic view at Hilltop Farm is as beautiful as its magnificent horses, but the facility's scenic side in a relatively rural section of Maryland is just one of the many things that make it unique, the word most often used by people describing this one-of-a-kind property.
