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.
Each year the United States Dressage Federation honors one breeder as the USDF Dressage Breeder of the Year and we are very excited to share that Hilltop Farm was the recipient for this award in 2013.
Devon is one of our favorite shows and we always look forward to catching up with other breeders, owners, and friends at this historic show. A large group of horses joined us from Hilltop’s Raising Department and Devon Prep Program making this year’s Devon especially busy for Team Hilltop.
