Royal Prince is Dressage Breeding Sire of the Year

Royal-Prince-2009-archiveThe United States Equestrian Federation gives awards to the top placing sires, breeders, and owners based upon their offspring show records over the past year at USEF recognized shows.  For the 2008 show season, Hilltop Farm stallions once again proved their consistency as Leading Sires in the US.

Royal Prince’s offspring brought their sire top honors in the Dressage Breeding division with over 200 points above the second place stallion. Daughter Rhodora, the 2008 Champion Filly & Champion Young Horse of Dressage at Devon, certainly contributed to this win, but was only one of many successful Royal Prince offspring showing on the line in 2008. While Royal Prince (Rohdiamant – Prince Thatch xx) continues his own competitive career, we are thrilled to see his earliest foal crops living up to our expectations of them.

Hilltop thanks all the offspring owners and breeders who played such a huge role in this year’s many successes!

It is with a broken heart that we share the news of Royal Prince’s passing this week. Late in the afternoon of January 20th Royal Prince presented an acute colic and was immediately taken to New Bolton Center. Unfortunately due to complications discovered during surgery, the only humane choice was to euthanize him.

The 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.
