Contucci Offspring Earn USDF Awards in 2015
With four out of five of the Contucci offspring earning USDF or All-Breeder awards this year doing so under junior or amateur riders, this year’s awards certainly reflect the wonderful temperament and rideability we consistently look to Contucci to produce. Hilltop-bred Con Dia (ds. Cor Noir), owned and ridden by Stephanie McNutt, earned a first place ranking in the ISR/Oldenburg All-Breeds Award for Adult Amateur Prix St. Georges. Con Dia and Stephanie also earned a 5th place ranking in the Prix St. Georges Open for ISR/Oldenburg. Also ranked in the ISR/Oldenburg All-Breeds, Capricious (ds. Grand Loewe) and junior rider Mckenzie Miavitz earned the Championship for Junior/Young Rider Second Level.
In the American Hanoverian Society All-Breeds rankings, Concerto (ds. Mahagoni) and Constantin (ds. Pablo) earned top rankings. Concerto and Lara Erdogus-Brady earned a 3rd place finish in the AHS Junior/Young Rider Training Level rankings. Constantin and owner Anne St. Martin received a 5th place ranking for Adult Amateur Third Level. Competing in the Four and Five-Year Old Materiale, Cha Ching HTF (ds. Corboba) and Hilltop Farm’s Assistant Trainer Jess Fay earned a 6th place ranking in the final USDF standings. Cha Ching has consistently been a standout through his in-hand career as a young horse and we’re thrilled to see him developing so wonderfully undersaddle. Congratulations to all of the owners, breeders, and riders!
