Late Season Additions
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.
We’re pleased to offer these new stallions to North American breeders. As a special late season welcome to the line-up, Hilltop Farm is offering a 10% discount to both stallions on all contracts booked prior to August 15th. To receive your contract, please email Brittany.
Chris Hickey and Cabana Boy added another national title to their resume by winning the 2009 USEF National Developing Horse Dressage Championship on August 21-23. The past two years, Chris and Cabana had traveled to Kentucky to compete in and win the 5 Year Old and 6 Year Old National Young Horse Dressage Championships, making them the first pair to win all three.
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.
