Each year Hilltop rewards breeders and owners on the success of their Hilltop-sired offspring. For results during the 2016 show season, a combination of 45 breeders and owners earned $17,000 in breeder rewards credits. Rewards certificates are able to be used on 2017 breedings to Hilltop-owned stallions.  They are earned via results from National and Regional Championships in all sport horse disciplines, from young horse classes to the top level of the respective sport.

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.
