Parabol January 10, 1983 - June 25, 2013

On June 25th Parabol was humanely euthanized at Hilltop Farm due to declining health and age-related complications.  While our hearts our heavy with this loss, we choose to focus instead on the thirty remarkable years Parabol had.

Parabol was the Champion of his 100-day Performance Test with the outstanding overall score of 140.38 points.  A successful jumper in Germany, Parabol easily transitioned to the dressage arena after his purchase by Jane MacElree.  He was the 1991 USDF Horse of the Year at Third Level and a Top Ten Finalist for the 1995 Pan-Am Selection Trials before developing into a successful Grand Prix horse with both Scott & Susanne Hassler. Approved by multiple breeding associations, Parabol’s influence has been significant and he has an approved stallion, multiple Premium/Elite mares, and high-level competitors in dressage, hunters, and show jumping to his credit.

Parabol’s most profound impact however was on those who worked with him daily.  In Parabol’s presence you felt the depth of character, the generous nature, and the charisma that made him a truly great horse.  It’s been an honor to have him in our care for so long and we’re grateful for each day we had with him.
