Riverman Wins USEF South Pacific Award

Riverman-Jan-2012The influence of a stallion is marked not only by the stallion’s success but most importantly by the success of his offspring. Riverman’s (Redfort x Alexis III/Landego) offspring set him apart as truly an exceptional sire as they continue to excel in the dressage, eventing, hunter, and jumper rings at all levels of competition. This year Riverman has been honored as the USEF/PHR South Pacific Sire. The South Pacific award is donated by Joan Irvine Smith after her international Grand Prix competitor and stallion South Pacific. It is given annually to the leading US-based jumper stallion. Hilltop Farm is very excited that Riverman has been honored with this prestigious award and would like to thank all of the breeders who chose to breed to Riverman over the years. His achievements as a sire could not have been made possible without you!

Hilltop Farm regretfully announces the passing of a wonderful stallion and a real show jumping star. On November 13, 2002, the famous jumping stallion VIP passed away while enjoying a beautiful sunny day in his paddock. At nearly 24-years of age, VIP still came out of his stall each day with the exuberance of a 3-year old! No one would have guessed it would be his last day.

The stunning grey Holsteiner, who currently stands at stud at Hilltop Farm in Colora, Maryland, was the Reserve Champion at his stallion licensing, and was a Verband stallion in Germany for the first part of his life.

Horse-Handlers

A Sport Horse Handler, whether at a show, inspection or exhibition, constantly strives for that 'magical moment' as he guides a horse in hand around the arena, often negotiating a large triangle formed from flower pots and jump poles. Together the two lift off and eat up the ground, matching stride for stride -- the horse seeming to float, to collect and extend on his own, all in perfect rhythm. The handler is as discreet as possible so that all attention focuses on the horse looking his best.
