ISR Inspection Saturday Only

Hilltop Farm is hard at work preparing our beautiful facility for those attending the upcoming ISR/Oldenburg Inspection.  Based on the current number of entries, both the Hilltop and ISR/Oldenburg staff have decided to make the inspection a one-day event (Saturday, August 16th 2014).  This offers an exciting opportunity for spectators to see stallions and mares perform under-saddle, later followed by the broodmare and foal presentations. 

Saturday’s program is tentatively expected to start at 8:30 a.m. with the stallion presentations, followed by the Sporthorse and Mare Performance Tests.  The inspection will then conclude with mare and foal evaluations.  A tentative schedule will be posted online the week of the inspection for a more accurate time frame.

This condensing of the program has opened an opportunity for the judges to give an educational lecture on the evening of Friday the 15th at 6 p.m.  The lecture will be a discussion on the challenges facing modern sporthorse breeding and will be open to the public free of charge.

They arrived on the international stage when their homebred Cabana Boy represented the United States at the 2007 World Young Horse Championships.
