We love catching up with breeders about all their offspring, including those by stallions that may not still be in our line-up. Here are some recent updates from breeders around the US on their offspring bred through Hilltop Farm. Jaquetta LJS (Laroche – Tomorrows Cat xx) by Laroche received First Premium in the Jumper division at recent the KWPN keuring held at Iron Spring Farm for owner/breeder Marie Emrey of Lazy J Sporthorses. Calla (Cabaret-Consul) and rider Lisa Schreiber had an excellent 2014 show season. The pair won multiple year-end awards with the Islip Horseman’s Association (IHA), including: High Score Adult, Intro Year End Champion, and Mirror Image Memorial Award. Congratulations to breeder April Hays on the inspection results of her Hemmingway colt, How Ya Like Me Now (Hemmingway – Quiet Enjoyment xx) out of the Thoroughbred mare Raise Your Hand. How Ya Like Me Now received Premium status and was High Score Foal of the inspection. His trot was a highlight, earning a score of 8.2.
History in the Making
Festrausch (Florestan-Carprilli) has been an important part of the stallion line-up at Hilltop Farm since his purchase in 2000. His bloodlines, incredible movement, and elegant type stood him apart, and it is the movement and character that he passes to his offspring that have made many of his breeders very loyal to him over the years.
The USEF has recently announced their 2005 Champions! Hilltop Farm’s Elite Hanoverian stallion Contucci has earned the title 2005 USEF Leading Sire Dressage Breeding. Further, Jane MacElree/ Hilltop Farm has been awarded the 2005 USEF Leading Owner Dressage Breeding title from the success of the Hilltop bred youngsters in sport.
