Five mares participated in the Mare Performance Test with Beaucoup d’Amis (Bugatti-Contucci), bred by Janice Barnes and owned by Trisha DeRosa being the high-scoring mpt with an overall 74.7. Seven mares were presented for Studbook inspection on Day 1. Premium Mares were Beaucoup D’Amis and Remarkable (Redwine-Evening Kris xx).

Rubinero Competes at Global Dressage Festival CDI

Hilltop News Rubinero Competes at Global Dressage Festival CDI Return to All Hilltop News >>> Owner Dawn Bernardo and Rubinero (Rubinstein-Ex Libris) enjoyed one final show together before Rubinero’s move to Hilltop Farm.  The last weekend in February they competed in the Global Dressage Festival’s CDI Adult-Amateur division and finished 4th in both the Prix St. Georges and Intermediaire I.  It was a bittersweet weekend for Dawn knowing that it was her last time showing the handsome stallion, but she was also excited for the new opportunities that are coming for him and is looking forward to seeing lots of Rubinero foals on the ground in the coming years.  Thank you Dawn for your willingness to share him with us!
