Rubinero Competes at Global Dressage Festival CDI
Owner Dawn Bernardo and Rubinero (Rubinstein-Ex Libris) enjoyed one final show together before Rubinero’s move to Hilltop Farm. The last weekend in February they competed in the Global Dressage Festival’s CDI Adult-Amateur division and finished 4th in both the Prix St. Georges and Intermediaire I. It was a bittersweet weekend for Dawn knowing that it was her last time showing the handsome stallion, but she was also excited for the new opportunities that are coming for him and is looking forward to seeing lots of Rubinero foals on the ground in the coming years. Thank you Dawn for your willingness to share him with us!
History in the Making
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.
What a way to end the year! The 2012 North American Stallion Test just finished this weekend and we couldn't be more pleased with the results for Qredit when he finished as the Dressage Champion & Overall Champion at the the 2012 70-Day North American Stallion Test!
