New Stallion Additions for 2017

Hilltop News New Stallion Additions for 2017 Return to All Hilltop News >>> It’s the New Year and we’ve got a couple of new additions to introduce you to! New international stallions for jumper and dressage breeders alike will be joining the Hilltop Farm Stallion Line-Up for 2017. Breeders looking for a jumping pedigree won’t be disappointed with the two new additions from Haras de Brullemail, Baloubar Mail (Baloubet du Rouet-Alligator Fontaine) and Catchar Mail (Diamant de Semilly – Calvaro Z). Both stallions received an overwhelming response from European breeders in their first seasons and we are excited to now offer them in North America.  For the dressage breeder, the newly approved Everdale son Inclusive (Everdale-Uptown) should be of particular interest.  This promising young stallion was named Co-Champion of the 2016 KWPN Autumn Stallion Performance Test, earning praise for his three very good basic gaits, rideability and self-carriage.   We’re looking forward to seeing the influence of these young stallions in the coming years!
