Virginia Summer Dressage Breed Show
Quinnten Alston took Relevè HTF (Royal Prince-Cordoba) and Cheap Trick (Contucci-Wonner) down to the Virginia Summer Dressage Breed Show on June 13th. Held at the show grounds in Culpepper, VA, this is always a fun event to attend. Relevè was 2nd in both the Two-Year Old Fillies and Hanoverian IBC class and Nancy Musser’s Cheap Trick was 2nd in the Yearling Colts/Geldings class. Our raising department now gets a few weeks to catch up before the next breed show in July.
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.
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.

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.
