Grand Prix Stallion Pikko del Cerro to stand at Hilltop Farm
We are excited to share the news that Horses Unlimited’s International Grand Prix stallion Pikko del Cerro will be standing at Hilltop Farm this year. Cerro has had a wonderful show career from winning at Devon in-hand, through earning three National Championships in the Young/Developing Horse Program, and most graduating to the CDI’s with scores well into the 70’s at Grand Prix. As his rider Lisa Wilcox said so well, “Cerro is the whole package! He has good looks of course, and his walk, trot and canter. The future of United States Dressage depends on this quality of horse! Cerro is going to make lots of breeders and mares happy!” Pikko del Cerro’s webpage has just been uploaded, but additional information, photos, and videos will be added in the coming days. The stallion will move to Hilltop Farm in early March and finally be available for breeders!
Riverman (Redfort – Landego) has been a cornerstone of the Hilltop Farm stallion line up for many years. Though is career focus was in the dressage arena, we see Riverman offspring excelling in the upper levels of almost every sport including dressage, eventing, combined driving, and most recently Riverman offspring are shining in show jumping...
Once again we made the long drive out to the beautiful Lamplight Equestrian Center in Wayne, IL for the Markel/USEF Young Horse Championships. Michael qualified two horses for the Championships this year.

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.
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.
