Dressage at Stone Tavern
Hilltop trainer Jess Fay had a great weekend in NJ at the Stone Tavern Shows. With Hilltop’s Cha Ching HTF (Contucci-Cordoba), Jess won her Training Level tests with scores of 76.7 & 76.8% and was High-Score Training Level for the first show. On Sunday, Cha Ching received an 82% in his Materiale class as well. On Jess’s own mare Veraki (Riverman-Little Missouri xx), Jess won their two Prix St. Georges tests with scores of 66.7% and 63.5% and were Reserve FEI High-Score. We’re so proud of Jess – this is a mare she bred and has done all the training on. Now that’s an accomplishment – Way to go!
The Lamplight Equestrian Center showgrounds were an exceptional stage for the USEF Young Horse National Championships this past weekend and we could not be happier with the performances of Hemmingway (Hofrat - Archipel) and Qredit Hilltop (Quaterback - Dream of Glory).
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.

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.
