Qredit & Witness Turn Up the Heat at the WPDA Summer Sizzler
Michael had a fantastic showing August 15-16 at the WPDA Summer Sizzler in Quentin, PA. Hilltop’s Qredit and Witness were both in top form for the weekend, winning all of their classes as well as High-Score Breed Awards from the GOV and KWPN respectively. They also captured High-Score show awards for each division. Qredit’s Prix St. Georges tests scored a 70% and a 75%, including multiple 9’s while Witness’s Grand Prix tests with Michael earned a 65.8% and a 77.8%. Yes, that is not a typo…it was a 77.8% in the Grand Prix! Witness has one more show scheduled in September and then both horses will head on to the USDF Region 1 Championships.
Once again we made the long drive out to the beautiful Lamplight Equestrian Center in Wayne, IL for the Markel/USEF Young Horse Championships. Michael qualified two horses for the Championships this year.
With each step in their careers, the Riverman offspring continue to impress us with the versatile athleticism that has allowed them to succeed at the highest levels of most every discipline. Over the years we’ve seen Riverman ranked near the top the USEF Leading Sire rankings in multiple disciplines.
