Sternlicht & Qredit Close Out our Florida Season
Our Florida season wrapped up in a winning fashion at the Global Dressage #7 show in Wellington. Qredit placed 1st & 2nd in his Developing PSG classes with scores of 70% and 68.4% over the two days. Sternlicht meanwhile contested his first FEI Six-Year Old class and handily won with an 8.02 overall. Sternlicht’s breeder, Rachel Ehrlich, was able to join us this weekend making this an extra special win! The Florida season was a beneficial one for both of the stallions and it was fun to meet so many breeders who came to see them over the last two months. It’s now back to Hilltop for the start of breeding season!
Hilltop Farm's Christopher Hickey and Cabana Boy (Contucci-Bordeaux) attended the 2010 Collecting Gaits Farm/USEF Dressage Festival of Champions on August 6-8 at the historic USET headquarters in Gladstone, NJ. At only 8 years old, this was already Cabana Boy's 2nd trip to the Championships. It was especially rewarding to have Hilltop's owner Jane MacElree and her daughters Ann and Leslie on hand to enjoy the show.
Carola Koppelmann and Comic Hilltop FRH won the 2006 Nurnberger Burgpokal at CDI-W Frankfurt last weekend with a winning score of 74.10% in the final round. The Nurnberg Burgpokal is the German National Championships for horses in the small tour (Prix St. George) and is only open to 7 – 9 year-old horses.

The dramatic view at Hilltop Farm is as beautiful as its magnificent horses, but the facility's scenic side in a relatively rural section of Maryland is just one of the many things that make it unique, the word most often used by people describing this one-of-a-kind property.
