Riverman USEF Leading Eventing Sire
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 and in 2015 his offspring once again earned him the honor of USEF Leading Eventing Sire. The results of a few offspring were particular highlights. Owned by Judith McSwain and bred by Charlotte Wrather, Fleecework’s Royal (ds. Corofino) handily won the Preliminary Championship at the USEA American Eventing Championships. Fleecework’s Royal is a previous winner of the 5-Year Old Young Event Horse West Coast Championships. Rachel Wilk’s River King (ds. Speed Play xx) competed at the Intermediate and Advanced Levels, picking up 5 top ten finishes. River King was bred by Cheryl Byrd. Kaitlin Whitefield’s Rivoletto (ds. Flying Nashua xx) was a consistent mount at the Preliminary level, taking home the Preliminary Level win at The Event at Rebecca Farms. Hilltop Farm would like to thank all of the breeders who have confidently chosen Riverman for their breeding plans over the years. Your breeding and competition efforts are truly appreciated and this recognition for Riverman could not have been possible without your efforts!
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.
