Hilltop News Hilltop Farm Named 2013 USDF Breeder of the Year Return to All Hilltop Archives >>> Each year the United States Dressage Federation honors one breeder as the USDF Dressage Breeder of the Year and we are very excited to share that Hilltop Farm was the recipient for this award in 2013. The Breeder of the Year award winner is determined on a point system, with each horse ranked in the USDF Horse of the Year, FEI, and/or USEF Young Horse Year-End awards contributing points to their breeder’s ranking.  A maximum of five horses’ scores will be used in tallying each breeder’s points.  The horses that  contributed to Hilltop Farm earning this award were: Boccaccio IOF (Bugatti-Rubinstein), Bellatesse HTF (Bugatti-Cordoba), Con Dia (Contucci-Cor Noir), Pacino (Parabol -Cor Noir), Firenzi (Festrausch-Riverman). Boccaccio, now owned by Marchella Richardson, had a fantastic year finishing as Second Level Horse of the Year and earning the First Level Championship and Second Level Reserve Championship at the USDF National Championships. Bellatesse, owned by Kris Schuler, finished the season as Reserve Champion Materiale Horse of the Year 4&5-YR Old Mares. Now owned by Stephanie McNutt, Con Dia earned an ISR/Oldenburg All-Breeds Award for Fourth Level Adult Amateur and Open Fourth Level; in addition to a Reserve Championship in Fourth Level Adult Amateur at the Region 1 Championships.  Firenzi and owner Larry Harrison had a great year together competing at First Level.  Last but not least, Cecelia Stewart’s Pacino, under Chris Hickey’s ride, finished the year as ISR/Oldenburg All-Breeds Awards Champion at Grand Prix.
