It's with a heavy heart we report the passing of our EM Berlina (Brentano II/Hill Hawk) on July 23, 2013. Imported as a foal by Suzanne Quarles of Some Day Soon Farm she won her Mare Performance Test. In 1998 she became the "Grand Champion of Dressage at Devon" where Suzanne fondly remembers "what a lark and honor". Berlina spent her life as a broodmare and was first leased then purchased my us in 2005. Berlina had the most gentle, sweet nature and was truly the Queen of the farm. She passed her incredible movement and temperament to her offspring including Wild Rose (Widmark - Berlina) winner of Dressage Materiale class at Devon, Sakima, (Sinatra Song - Berlina) wins under saddle and in breed shows, and Lady in Red (Liberty Gold - Berlina) Champion Mare at Hilltop Farm Inspection with an overall "8" this year.
