Don Principe is USEF Sire of the Year

DonPrincipe_US_PicsOfYou_2013Hilltop Farm is proud to share the news that Don Principe (Donnerhall-Prince Thatch xx-Durkheim), owned by Marydell Farms and bred by Adelheid Bruening, has been named the USEF Dressage Breeding Sire of the Year for 2013. The USEF Leading Sire system has become a valuable way for stallion owners, breeders, and trainers to evaluate the success of a stallion’s offspring in many different venues from competitions throughout the United States.  With top results throughout the season by offspring such as Danseuse MF (Don Principe-Fuerst Heinrich), Dinah Shore MF (Don Principe-Rotspon), and CCS Legolas (Don Principe-Falkenhorst), Don Principe was the clear champion this year.

Don Principe also finished 9th on the Hunter Breeding Sire rankings and despite a fairly young group offspring competing under saddle ranked in the top 50 for USEF Dressage Sires.  Both Hilltop Farm and Marydell Farm, would like to thank all the Don Principe breeders and owners who have confidently chosen to breed to Don Principe as well as the current owners who have their Don Principe offspring out competing. Your breeding and competition efforts are truly appreciated and this accomplishment could not have been possible without your efforts!
