Doctor Wendell MF Fully Approved AHS
Beyond the initial licensing by a registry, a breeding stallion must complete additional performance requirements to earn their lifetime approval. Some do this through stallion testings, but some complete their requirements through show results. For the AHS, stallions must earn five scores of 63% or higher from five different judges at Prix St. Georges or higher. We’re thrilled to share the news that Doctor Wendell MF (Don Principe-Sandro Hit) has just completed that requirement in his first five outings at this level. Under Jim Koford, Doc has earned scores ranging from 65%-74% and he won’t even turn seven until later this spring. Bred and owned by Marydell Farm, Doc is an outstanding example of US breeding and is just beginning to tap into the potential he has for the FEI work.
Jane MacElree and Hilltop Farm are excited to announce their purchase of the recently licensed, three-year old Hanoverian stallion Sternlicht GGF (Soliman de Hus-Rascalino). The charismatic black stallion was bred by Rachel Ehrlich of Massachusetts and is the second stallion from her well-established breeding program to be approved by the American Hanoverian Society.
With great sadness, we must announce that our beautiful Holsteiner stallion Cor Noir was put down November 3, 2003 for humane reasons. Cor Noir gave tremendous quality to our Hilltop Farm breeding program, producing our top broodmares and the foundation for so much of our success today.

The dramatic view at Hilltop Farm is as beautiful as its magnificent horses, but the facility's scenic side in a relatively rural section of Maryland is just one of the many things that make it unique, the word most often used by people describing this one-of-a-kind property.
Wisconsin breeders work on one foal at a time. Shannon (a competitive dressage rider) and Doug Langer, DVD, (a partner of the Wisconsin Equine Clinic and Hospital) have bred Hanoverians for 10 years at their Maple Run Farm in Helenville, Wisconsin. They arrived on the international stage when their homebred Cabana Boy represented the United States at the 2007 World Young Horse Championships.
