Virginia Summer Breed Show
The lovely Culpepper show grounds was the site of our next Breed Show outing on June 17th. Only two youngsters from Hilltop shipped down with Quinnten Alston. Savannah HTF (Sternlicht-Royal Prince) was more settled than she had been in her first show a week ago and we were pleased with her 2nd place in the Yearling Fillies class with a 75.8% and 4th in the Hanoverian IBC. The two-year old Stetson HTF (Sternlicht-Negro) acts like an old show horse and confidently won the Two-Year Old Colts & Geldings class with a 76%, was Reserve Champion Colt/Gelding, and was 2nd in the Hanoverian IBC. All our young ones get a nice break now from showing. Congratulations to all the owners that Quinnten handled for throughout the show.

The Lamplight Equestrian Center showgrounds were an exceptional stage for the USEF Young Horse National Championships this past weekend and we could not be happier with the performances of Hemmingway (Hofrat - Archipel) and Qredit Hilltop (Quaterback - Dream of Glory).
Hilltop Articles & Interviews
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.
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.
