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.
Riverman (Redfort – Landego) has been a cornerstone of the Hilltop Farm stallion line up for many years. Though is career focus was in the dressage arena, we see Riverman offspring excelling in the upper levels of almost every sport including dressage, eventing, combined driving, and most recently Riverman offspring are shining in show jumping...
What a way to end the year! The 2012 North American Stallion Test just finished this weekend and we couldn't be more pleased with the results for Qredit when he finished as the Dressage Champion & Overall Champion at the the 2012 70-Day North American Stallion Test!

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.
