Hilltop News ISR/OldenburgNA Inspection Return to All Hilltop News >>> Our annual ISR/OldenburgNA Inspection was held August 12-13th and we saw a large, diverse group of good quality horses over the two days. Five stallions were licensed: Chester (Cunningham-Padinus), Heroic Times (Goodtimes-Michellino), Stormy River DZ (San Amour-Weltmeyer), Finery (Furstenball-Diamond Hit), and Rubinero (Rubinstein-Ex Libris).  Having already fulfilled their performance requirements, Stormy River DZ & Rubinero have achieved their Lifetime Approval.  The other three stallions received a Certified Breeding License which is good for two years while they complete their performance requirements. 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). Day 2 of the inspection was filled with mares and foals.  An additional 11 mares were presented with Qindle HTF (Qredit-Royal Prince) earning the only Premium Mare Award for the day.  Twenty-two foals, including 4 ponies, were then presented.  Premium Awards were given to Jin (Jazz-Good As Gold) bred by Lauren Efford/Goldhope Farm, Harley’s Davidson (Woodbury’s Harlequin-Colwyn Llewelyn) bred by Arlette Johnson, Forrest Fern (Forrest Flame-Merrie Moscan) bred by Lesley Feakins, Sambuca (Sternlicht-Pointmaker) bred by Kathy LaCroix, Quiet Riot (Quaterback-Cor Noir) bred by Horse Power Inc, Perfect Storm (Cunningham-Popeye K) bred by Maple Run Farm, Alemana (Aloha-Sky Classic) bred by Beth Lawrence, and Galway (Grafenstolz-Riverman) bred by Elizabeth Callahan.  Top colt was Alemana and Top Filly was Forrest Fern.  Congratulations to all!

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!
