Dylan HTF (Donarweiss – Riverman)

Owner and rider Christine Duke is having a wonderful year competing on the Hilltop-bred gelding Dylan HTF.  Christine purchased Dylan as a young horse and is competing at Beginner Novice level this year.  The pair held the lead through all three phases to win the Beginner Novice Horse division at Hunters Run Horse Trials last weekend.  Christine plans to compete Dylan in the Area Championships at the end of August and the American Eventing Championships this fall.
