Hilltop News

There is no greater testament to a stallion than the quality and success of their offspring. Each year we look forward to seeing the stallion’s offspring out showing successfully. The Hilltop Farm Breeder Reward Program allows us to reward the breeders and owners of horses bred through Hilltop Farm who achieve competitive success through Rewards Certificates that can be applied towards a future breeding. From the 2017 show season, we’re excited to see so many offspring earning top results across the country. This past year, a few breeders have multiple horses earning top results, a wonderful acknowledgement to the quality of US breeding programs. For results during the 2017 show season, a combination of 34 breeders and owners earned $14,200 in breeder rewards credits. For more information on the Breeder Rewards programs click here.

Hilltop Archives


Ten weeks following a surgery that was intended to prolong and sustain the quality of life for the 19-year old Holsteiner stallion, Hilltop Farm lost their founding sire Cabaret on October 28, 1999. An arthrocentesis was performed on the right front fetlock of the stallion in order to" fuse" the fetlock and create relief for a failing suspensory apparatus.
