Sussex Dressage Show
The heatwave isn’t slowing us down! While everyone at the farm was busy with inspection prep, Michael traveled up to the Sussex Dressage Show in New Jersey. Friday was a super start with the horses. Faberge Blue won his Open Prix St. Georges with a 72%, SenSation HW earned an impressive 8.66 in his USEF 4-Year Old test, and Qredit earned a 77.5% in his Intermediare II. On Saturday, Qredit again won the Intermediare II with another strong score of 73.947%. In their USEF Qualifying classes, Faberge Blue confidently won the Developing Prix St. Georges with a 72.647% and SenSation HW secured his win in the USEF 4-Year Olds with an overall 8.04. Well done!
Jane MacElree and Hilltop Farm are excited to announce their purchase of the recently licensed, three-year old Hanoverian stallion Sternlicht GGF (Soliman de Hus-Rascalino). The charismatic black stallion was bred by Rachel Ehrlich of Massachusetts and is the second stallion from her well-established breeding program to be approved by the American Hanoverian Society.
It’s hard to believe that it really has been 20 years already. When Jane MacElree first purchased the stallions Cabaret and Nureyev, she had no idea of what would evolve in the coming years, but what a journey it has been! On October 29th Jane, the Hilltop staff, and many of our friends, family, and clients celebrated our 20th Anniversary with a wonderful party at the farm.
