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.
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.
What a way to end the year! The 2012 North American Stallion Test just finished this weekend and we couldn't be more pleased with the results for Qredit when he finished as the Dressage Champion & Overall Champion at the the 2012 70-Day North American Stallion Test!

The phone rings at Hilltop Farm and breeding manager Natalie DiBerardinis answers. Just as she suspected, it is a mare owner looking for advice. Which stallion would be a good match for her mare, the caller asks anxiously. With scientific advances in artificial insemination, the choices for a perfect partner have never been greater, but that doesn't mean the selection process is any simpler. DiBerardinis asks the owner a few questions about her mare and suggests she complete Hilltop's online questionnaire. After reading it, she and the caller will talk again to discuss the options.
The manicured grounds of the Lamplight Equestrian Center were superb as was the quality of the equine competitors at the 2009 Markel/United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) National Young Horse Dressage Championships and the 2009 USEF National Developing Horse Dressage Championship, sponsored by the Dutta Corporation and Performance Sales International.
