||2017 saw the arrival of the first Rubinero foals bred through Hilltop Farm and we thrilled with the results! We are universally hearing praise from breeders on their type and outstanding temperaments. Of course, we already expected this from seeing his older offspring. With a licensed stallion, States Premium Mares, and many Premium Foals we knew the quality this stallion sires. From young horse classes through the FEI levels, and into the hunter ring, Rubinero offspring show their trainability and talent.
At this 70-Day Stallion Test, Rubinero finished 2nd in the dressage phase with a score of 140+ points, and finished in 3rd place overall. His character and rideability earned him perfect 10's. Rubinero qualified for the Bundeschampionat, was Reserve Champion at Rastede, and quickly moved up to the Advanced levels. Imported to the US in 2013, Rubinero continued his winning ways with his amateur owner, earning scores as high as 72.5% at Intermediaire I. He was the USDF Region 3 Champion at Intermediaire and Reserve Champion at Prix St. Georges.
His sire, Rubinstein, has over 90 approved sons, more than 170 States Premium daughters, and his offspring have won over 2.5 Million Euro in competition. Rubinero's dam, Faola, passed her Mare Performance Test with an overall score of 8.36, receiving a 9.0 for her willingness to perform, her canter, rideability, free jumping technique and a 10.0 for free jumping ability. Her sire, Ex Libris, sired both jumpers and dressage horses. Whether a pure dressage breeder, or looking to produce future hunter champions, this kind and generous stallion may be a serious contender.
