Ulmar Mail

We’re pleased to announce the addition of two new late season additions to the Hilltop Farm Stallion Roster: Ulmar Mail (Berlin-Narcos II) and Woodbury’s Harlequin (Ferguson Uno Dutch – Moleview Mohawk). The captivating grey stallion Ulmar Mail, owned and bred by Haras De Brullemail, has been exceptionally successful in the young jumper championships in France. Always a consistent competitor with a careful jumping style, Ulmar Mail was double clear 14 times in 14 starts in his first year of competition.  Ulmar Mail will be available to breeders via frozen semen with our standard 2-Year Live Foal Guarantee contract.

Also joining the line-up is the sport pony stallion Woodbury’s Harlequin, owned and bred by PJ Lillington. A “pint sized” addition to the line-up at 12.2 hands, Harlequin should be of particular interest to pony breeders and breeders looking to downsize a larger mare.  Based in Scotland, Harlequin was successful as a young horse in-hand and his success has carried over to the pony jumpers with multiple Small Pony Jumper Championships.  Harlequin’s limited inventory of semen will be available on the per dose basis for $400/dose and we already have our first mare confirmed in-foal.

Hilltop Farm regretfully announces the passing of a wonderful stallion and a real show jumping star. On November 13, 2002, the famous jumping stallion VIP passed away while enjoying a beautiful sunny day in his paddock. At nearly 24-years of age, VIP still came out of his stall each day with the exuberance of a 3-year old! No one would have guessed it would be his last day.

Kristi-Nunnink

Kristi Nunnink's default expression is a smile. It doesn't matter how hard she's working, what level she's riding or how the horse under her is performing -- her mouth curls faintly upward, unforced. It may just be a coincidence of facial structure, or it may be a product of years of habit. But either way, the expression fits her, because Nunnink may very well be the happiest rider at Rolex Kentucky. At 48, she's heading to her first CCI**** with her horse of a lifetime.
