Congratulations to EA Cygnus+//

_SHN4891-72The USDF has confirmed our FEI gelding, EA Cygnus+//, has achieved a distinction only one other horse in the country has, earning a prestigious USDF Horse Performance Certificate at EVERY level of dressage – Training through Grand Prix – a feat requiring more than 90 qualifying scores and making Cygnus only the second US dressage horse of any breed to earn this accolade and the first-ever Arabian. Cygnus is also the only Arabian to be awarded the Adequan/USDF Jr/Young Rider Grand Prix Horse of the Year.

Cygnus has completed an astounding 72 USDF Grand Prix tests in his career, making him one of the top 50 dressage horses of all time for number of USDF Grand Prix scores. What a testament to his longevity and the quality of the Arabian Sport Horse. Cyg, who is working better than ever, always gets to do as he wants and he still wants to be a Grand Prix horse. Both age 23, Mimi and Cygnus will continue their FEI partnership in the upcoming show season.

PRTC Horses Approved Oldenburg

Our Arabian mare PR Sunkyst, her 2012 filly PR Conkystadora, and our 2011 filly PR Conradina attended the most recent ISR-Oldenburg NA Inspection in MN and all qualified. PR Conradina and PR Conkystadora are both sired by Hilltop Farm’s Hanoverian stallion Contucci, the 2009 USEF Dressage Sire of the Year. The fillies are now branded Oldenburg and double-registered Oldenburg and Half-Arabian. One will be available for sale. Check with us.

Quarter Horse Dressage News

We are busting our buttons at the achievements of Bobbi Bingeman and her beautiful AQHA mare, Sparkin Hot Jacke (“Paq”). In 2012 with both Mimi and Bobbi showing, Paq earned her Register of Merit in dressage and was the number one ranked QH in 1st level dressage according to the national AQHA Journal standings! We can’t wait to see Paq step up to 2nd level this show season. If you are interested in exploring dressage – Western, classical, or competitive – with your QH, give us a call. We offer training for the beginner to FEI rider and would love to help expand your horizons.

PRTC Horses in Arabian Sport Horse Magazine

Mimi and PR Captain Hook are included for their USDF All Breeds Award in 4th Level Open and there are several photos and mentions of our new filly, Mirai C, for being Reserve National Champion Yearling Sporthorse Filly with her previous owner, Beth Conti.

Welcome to Mirai C!

2012maraiC_4532_lgPRTC welcomes our newest addition, Mirai C, from Catori Creek Arabians in CA! With double blankets and much attention, Mirai is adjusting very well to winter life in ND. Mirai, a 2010 black filly, not only has splendid Arabian type but also shows the natural uphill balance and elasticity of movement necessary for a dressage prospect. Mirai is already a Reserve National Champion Sport Horse In Hand winner. Her sire, the spectacular Mirage V+++// is a multi-National Champion and her dam Windsong Bey is a multi-National Champion producer. We are excited to start Mirai’s dressage training and one day, work her into our sport horse breeding program.
