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!

Witness-Nations-Cup

It was an absolute perfect finish to our Florida show season when Chris and Witness were invited to be on Team USA for the first ever CDIO3* Nations Cup competition in Wellington, Florida. Chris and Witness started the weekend out strong with a 2nd place finish in Friday’s Prix St. Georges, but they really shone in the Freestyle under the lights on Saturday night.

With great sadness, we must announce that our beautiful Holsteiner stallion Cor Noir was put down November 3, 2003 for humane reasons. Cor Noir gave tremendous quality to our Hilltop Farm breeding program, producing our top broodmares and the foundation for so much of our success today.

The phone rings at Hilltop Farm and breeding manager Natalie DiBerardinis answers. Just as she suspected, it is a mare owner looking for advice. Which stallion would be a good match for her mare, the caller asks anxiously. With scientific advances in artificial insemination, the choices for a perfect partner have never been greater, but that doesn't mean the selection process is any simpler. DiBerardinis asks the owner a few questions about her mare and suggests she complete Hilltop's online questionnaire. After reading it, she and the caller will talk again to discuss the options.
