Hilltop Has a 3rd Colt
On April 22nd our Hanoverian mare EM Raja HTF (Royal Prince-Parabol) did a good night’s work and gifted us with a new Sternlicht colt. This baby is all bay with a star and oh so handsome! Jane has decided on the name Steinbeck for this new addition to our farm.
It’s official – the USEF Sire Rankings have been tabulated for the year and we are very proud to announce that for the 2nd year in a row Riverman is the Eventing Sire of the Year and for the 3rd year in a row Royal Prince is the Dressage Breeding Sire of the Year! Congratulations to all the owners and breeders whose offspring contributed to these wins.
Ten weeks following a surgery that was intended to prolong and sustain the quality of life for the 19-year old Holsteiner stallion, Hilltop Farm lost their founding sire Cabaret on October 28, 1999. An arthrocentesis was performed on the right front fetlock of the stallion in order to" fuse" the fetlock and create relief for a failing suspensory apparatus.
