Team USA Wins Wellington CDIO3* Nations Cup

Witness-Nations-CupIt 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 the high-score of the night with a 71.425%, Chris and Witness’s score was instrumental in the team competition and led Team USA to the Gold Medal win over the European  team.  Chris was excited by the win and by the entire experience. "I'm very happy with Witness.  He showed himself well even in the electric night time atmosphere of the wonderful new show grounds! I am proud of him and so happy that Jane was there to enjoy the team feeling we got from this wonderful experience! I had a lot of fun with my teammates as well!"

Also on Saturday night the Global Dressage Festival had a Parade of Champions for the High-Score winners from the entire season.  Balissa HTF was Reserve High-Score at First Level for the entire show series this year.  Since Chris was preparing Witness for the Freestyle, Jane went into the ring for the walk around with the other winners to collect Balissa’s ribbon & trophy.  Jane was ecstatic with her award!

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.
