We produce HIGH quality sporthorses to be shown in Hunter Breeding and later in performance careers.
We have exceptional broodmares as proven by their lineage, performance, temperament and offspring. They are suitable for amateurs and even used in our lesson program. We work hard to determine the best stallion to compliment our mares and breed for suitability in hunters, jumpers and dressage. All offspring are inspected and registered Rheinland Pfalz-Saar, Belgian Warmblood or Oldenburg NA.

"Chessie" is an integral part of our farm. Thanks to her incredible temperament, when not too pregnant, she is used for intermediate and above riders in our lesson program. She has a great personality and a very kind way about her. She is patient and kind. Chessie has impeccable manners, a lovely disposition and is a great introduction into lower level dressage movements for our hunter/jumper riders.

Chessie is a great mover with tons of suspension and an INCREDIBLE jump. She is honest to the fences and has a great lead change. She is comfortable though you can feel the power of her hind-end!!

2004, 15.21/2 H ISR Oldenburg Mare by Contucci

Zoeylow.jpgZoeyNovJump2.jpg

"Zoey" has been trained through Second Level dressage and has the patience of a Saint! She loves attention and will happily carry ANY rider around the ring; either as a bee-boppin' lesson horse or just add a set of spurs and you are riding a well-oiled machine around a Second Level test. She patiently will teach all riders to half pass, turn-on-haunches or forehand and is absolutely unflappable.

Her Sire, CONTUCCI is one of the foundation Stallions for Hilltop Farm with a Stallion Licensing score of 127.6 with a dressage score of 147.11 and 9's for Character, Trot and Canter. He is a 4 Star Stallion with ISR/Oldenburg NA and received the 2005 USEF Dressage Breeding Sire of the Year and 2009 USEF Dressage Sire of the Year. He is known for his generous nature, willingness to work and freedom of movement. All of which are VERY evident in Zoey.
