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!
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.
The United States Equestrian Federation gives awards to the top placing sires, breeders, and owners based upon their offspring show records over the past year at USEF recognized shows. For the 2008 show season, Hilltop Farm stallions once again proved their consistency as Leading Sires in the US.

Wisconsin breeders work on one foal at a time. Shannon (a competitive dressage rider) and Doug Langer, DVD, (a partner of the Wisconsin Equine Clinic and Hospital) have bred Hanoverians for 10 years at their Maple Run Farm in Helenville, Wisconsin. They arrived on the international stage when their homebred Cabana Boy represented the United States at the 2007 World Young Horse Championships.
