More Hilltop Horses
While the stallions take center stage most of the time, Hilltop Farm does own some other very special horses that we highlight here. These include our broodmares, young prospects, and our performance horses. Our broodmares often represent multiple generations of our own breeding program. Each has their own strengths and unique qualities that they bring to the breeding equation. One of Jane’s greatest enjoyments is watching her horses develop over the years, so we like to retain a few of our homebred offspring to develop which may then be offered for sale at later stages in their training.
HPM Balissa HTF
Bugatti – Contucci – Caribo
Balissa is clearly one of Jane’s favorite horses. Her imposing presence is balanced with a kind nature and generous character that offers 100% in everything she’s asked. Balissa won the AHS Year-End award for the Four-Year Old division and placed 2nd in the USDF Horse of the Year standings at First Level. She’s shown up to Fourth Level and offered an exceptional talent for the piaffe/passage work. Balissa is now a part of Hilltop’s broodmare band.
Kevekko – Wellington – Argus
Brooklyn has one of the most important jobs on the farm. She has taken on the duties as our tease mare at Hilltop. Brooklyn’s wonderful temperament and easy-going nature make her an absolute pleasure to be around and the boys all enjoy seeing her in the breeding shed on a regular basis. She’s very patient with young stallions as they are learning too! Thank you to Marie Emrey and Lazy J Sporthorses for making this wonderful mare available to us.
Contucci – Cordoba – Weltmeyer
Chiquita HTF is the oldest daughter of our treasured mare EM Comtesse (aka Cha Cha) who earned an overal 8.06 at her MPT, was trained to FEI levels, and was Reserve Grand Champion of Dressage at Devon. Chiquita was Top Filly of her AHS Inspection and was the Champion Foal of Devon in 2008. With her first three foals, Chiquita has proven herself an outstanding broodmare and we’re looking forward to her continuing this mare line for our breeding program. She is in-foal to Widmark for 2018.
Contucci – Royal Prince – Parabol
Tall, athletic, and with an excellent character, we were very excited to welcome this filly in 2016. Colette is a third generation of Hilltop’s breeding program and from one of our strongest producing mare lines. She was Reserve Champion Filly & Young Horse at her first show in 2017. The future looks bright for this beautiful filly.
EMC Qindle HTF
Qredit – Royal Prince – Parabol
Qindle has always captivated us. As a two-year old, she won her class in Dressage at Devon. In 2016, she was Champion of her Mare Performance Test and named an Elite Mare Candidate with the AHS and a Premium Mare with ISR/Oldenburg. At age four she was very successful at Training Level including placing 5th at the very large USDF Rrgion 8 Finals. She is in-foal to For Romance for 2018.
Qredit – Cordoba – Weltmeyer
Quinzy is from our stallion Qredit’s first foalcrop and we’ve retained her to develop as a competition horse in the coming years. She is a big mare with a lot of power and expression to her gaits. She made her undersaddle debut in the fall of her 3-year old year and won the 3-Year Old Materiale at Devon in only her second outing. She’s had an excellent record at Training & First Levels with median year-end scores over 70% and will make her Third Level debut in the spring of 2018 as a six year-old.
EM Raja HTF
Royal Prince – Parabol – Consul
Raja represents a second generation of Hilltop’s breeding program. Her dam, the Premium Oldenburg mare Parlez (Parabol – Consul), was an excellent producer for Hilltop Farm including producing one licensed stallion. Raja is an Elite Mare with the AHS and a Premium Mare with ISR/OldenburgNA. Her offspring are consistently among our favorites each year and are winning in both the hunter and dressage arenas. Raja is in-foal to Olivi for 2018.
EM Raj Mahal HTF
Royal Prince – Donnerhall – Pik Koenig
Raj Mahal is the only daughter in the US of the exceptional mare Primavera who was the 1992 Champion of the Oldenburg Elite Mare Show, winner of the Riding Championships at Rastede, and was third at the Bundeschampionat. Raj Mahal’s rideability and canter are exceptional. She is an Elite Mare with the AHS and a Premium Mare with ISR/Oldenburg. She’s produced four special foals for us so far. Raj Mahal is in-foal to Negro for 2018.
Royal Prince – Cordoba – Weltmeyer
As the last daughter of our wonderful mare EM Comtesse (aka Cha Cha), Relevè holds a special place in everyone’s heart here at Hilltop Farm. In 2014, she placed 2nd at Dressage at Devon in the Yearling Fillies class and was the Reserve Champion for USDF Horse of the Year standings for her age group. Relevè also won the AHS National Futurity and was the High-Scoring Hanoverian Mare at her AHS Inspection in 2016 with an overall 7.83 points. Her first foal, by Qredit, was Reserve Champion for the USDF East Coast Foal Championships in 2017.
Sternlicht – Royal Prince – Donnerhall
An exquisite type and light, lofty movement earned this special girl the Top Filly honors at her AHS Inspection. Savannah has all the quality we look for in both a performance and breeding prospect, so we just had to retain her for our program. She’s been successful in-hand as a young horse and is maturing into a leggy, beautiful young mare that we look forward to starting undersaddle in 2019.
Sternlicht – Negro – Fruhling
We are very excited about this tall, athletic youngster from Sternlicht’s first foal crop. Stetson has three very high-quality gaits and is naturally well-balanced and always uphill. He was named Reserve Champion colt at his AHS Inspection. In 2017, he won the USDF East Coast Colts/Geldings Championship and placed 1st for AHS Year-End Awards. Stetson is now started undersaddle and we look forward to his future show career.
Uforia (reg. Unicum-D)
Negro – Fruhling – Liberto
At Hilltop Farm we believe strongly in broodmares proving themselves in sport. Under Nick Wagman, Uforia quickly climbed the dressage ranks. In 2008, she competed at the USEF Intermediaire National Championships and the following year she debuted at Grand Prix at only 8 years of age. Hilltop Farm acquired Uforia in 2010 for our broodmare herd. Her first four foals (by Qredit, Sternlicht, & Lord Leatherdale) have been exceptional with numerous awards already on their records.
Hamlet – Burggraaf – Amor
Witness was purchased by Hilltop Farm in 2011. Under Jane’s ownership, he has competed twice at the USEF Festival of Champions, won a Team Gold Medal in the Wellington CDIO3* Nations Cup, and was the USDF Region 1 Champion at Intermediaire II and Reserve Champion at Grand Prix in 2015. Witness’s bright, cheerful character has endeared him to everyone at Hilltop and we’re looking forward to his continued showing in the Grand Prix ring.
