In 1989, Jane MacElree purchased the 400+ acres that now comprise Hilltop Farm. Construction for the Main Training Barn began and many of the camp buildings, including the original gymnasium, were renovated. Broodmares, breeding stallions, and training horses were moved onto the farm and the doors officially opened in September 1991.

Select Breeders Services moved their headquarters to Hilltop Farm in1993 which coincided perfectly with the expansion of the breeding services and stallion offerings through Hilltop. In the years that followed, the acquisitions of Riverman and Contucci firmly established Hilltop Farm’s position as one of the most prominent stallion stations in North America.

More than thirty years after its inception, Jane’s enthusiasm and commitment to Hilltop Farm remains as strong as ever. Jane has always focused not only on the horses, but also on the people connected with them and it has been that team approach that has formed the foundation of Hilltop Farm’s position as a leader in the US sport horse industry.

Canter Culture Riding Apparel

Canter Culture Riding Apparel was founded by professional equestrian & USDF Silver Medalist Lauren Baggett & her student, adult amateur and dressage enthusiast Sarah Dahlberg. We spent many a lesson chatting about how traditional equestrian clothes didn't fit our style or personalities, nor had we found the perfect breech or riding tight that offered the ideal combination of support, structure, and comfort.

Out of these conversations came Canter Culture - a new equestrian brand that aims to provide riders with high-quality, performance-driven apparel that meets their athletic needs while allowing them to showcase their unique sense of style. Every piece of clothing from Canter Culture is carefully designed & crafted to ensure a perfect fit, all-day comfort and high functionality. From the innovative fabrics to the attention to detail, every aspect of our apparel is thoughtfully considered to enhance the rider's experience.
