VADA/NOVA Breed Show
Quinnten traveled with a number of youngsters from Hilltop for the VADA/NOVA Breed Show on June 9th. It was wonderful to see a good turnout of entries at this long-established show. In the Yearling Fillies class, Savannah HTF (Sternlicht-Royal Prince) was 1st, Shiraz HTF (Sternlicht-Negro) owned by Patricia Hovington was 3rd, and Colette HTF (Contucci-Royal Prince) was 4th. Stetson HTF (Sternlicht-Negro) was 2nd in the Two-Year Old Colts/Geldings class with a 78.8% and finished 3rd in the Colt Championship. In the Hanoverian IBC, Stetson took 1st place with Savannah in 2nd, Shiraz in 4th, and Colette in 5th. Quinnten was able to handle for a number of clients as well. Congratulations to all!
Once again we made the long drive out to the beautiful Lamplight Equestrian Center in Wayne, IL for the Markel/USEF Young Horse Championships. Michael qualified two horses for the Championships this year.
With each step in their careers, the Riverman offspring continue to impress us with the versatile athleticism that has allowed them to succeed at the highest levels of most every discipline. Over the years we’ve seen Riverman ranked near the top the USEF Leading Sire rankings in multiple disciplines.
