Hilltop News

This month our show season starts to ramp up, and this past weekend’s CDCTA show was a perfect outing.  Michael won all 4 of his classes and all scores were over 70%.  Mitch & Lara Mitchelson’s Faberge Blue (Contango-Democraat) continued his winning ways with a 73% & 76% in his Fourth Level Test 3 and Fourth Level Freestyle classes.  Faberge was bred in Maryland by Marie Emrey/Lazy J Sporthorses. Iris Aberbach’s Boxster A (Bugatti-Weltbekannt) made the move up to the Intermediate A test and handily won both his FEI Test of Choice classes with a 70%. Boxster is a homebred for Iris.

The phone rings at Hilltop Farm and breeding manager Natalie DiBerardinis answers. Just as she suspected, it is a mare owner looking for advice. Which stallion would be a good match for her mare, the caller asks anxiously. With scientific advances in artificial insemination, the choices for a perfect partner have never been greater, but that doesn't mean the selection process is any simpler. DiBerardinis asks the owner a few questions about her mare and suggests she complete Hilltop's online questionnaire. After reading it, she and the caller will talk again to discuss the options.
