Hilltop Farm Foaling Updates
Our foaling season here at Hilltop is continuing along really well and we’re very excited about this year’s group of foals. It’s a fun mix of sires, so we are seeing a lot of diversity. On May 4th, Raja HTF (Royal Prince-Parabol) gave birth to a tall, long-legged black filly by Contucci. With 4 matching socks and a star/snip, she’s quite the fancy one. On May 8th, Liz Frankel’s mare Utopia (Ginsberg-Don Pedro) had her second foal. This adorable filly is by Vallado (aka Praise) and looks a lot like her sire! On May 10th, the filly streak broke with the arrival of a very good looking colt by Qredit out of Iris Aberbach’s Berlinetta A (Bugatti-Weltbekannt) who is a full-sister to the very successful Boxster A. We’re now officially over halfway through our foaling season!
Hilltop Farm's Christopher Hickey and Cabana Boy (Contucci-Bordeaux) attended the 2010 Collecting Gaits Farm/USEF Dressage Festival of Champions on August 6-8 at the historic USET headquarters in Gladstone, NJ. At only 8 years old, this was already Cabana Boy's 2nd trip to the Championships. It was especially rewarding to have Hilltop's owner Jane MacElree and her daughters Ann and Leslie on hand to enjoy the show.
The USEF has recently announced their 2005 Champions! Hilltop Farm’s Elite Hanoverian stallion Contucci has earned the title 2005 USEF Leading Sire Dressage Breeding. Further, Jane MacElree/ Hilltop Farm has been awarded the 2005 USEF Leading Owner Dressage Breeding title from the success of the Hilltop bred youngsters in sport.
Hilltop Articles & Interviews
For many Warmblood enthusiasts, just the mention of the famous stallion Riverman is enough to send chills down their spines. The stunning grey Holsteiner, who currently stands at stud at Hilltop Farm in Colora, Maryland, was the Reserve Champion at his stallion licensing, and was a Verband stallion in Germany for the first part of his life.
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.
