   Cameo Role   

(Contucci / Duellglanz)  











Cameo Role, born in 2002, is a beautiful 16.2 hand Premium and Champion Oldenburg mare.  She carries the bloodlines of the magnificent stallion, Contucci, who is her sire.  Her Granddam and Grandsire, are Wishful and Duellglanz respectively, who were both Foundation breeding stock for the now well known breeding facility, High Point Hanoverians. Therefore, as important as her sire line, is her strong dam line, which is a treasure to have in a broodmare.

Cameo Role is a Premium & Champion Oldenburg mare who has produced 100% Premium Foals. Cameo, herself, was Premium as a foal and scored an amazing 8.7 for movement with an 8.5 overall!!! She showed in hand as a 5 year old at Dressage at Waterloo and was USDF Grand Champion of the Entire DHSB Show with Lilo Fore as judge. She was awarded an impressive score of 82.8.

Cameo's grandam, Wishful, was Highpoint Hanoverian's very successful producing foundation mare. In addition, Cameo's grandsire, Duellglanz, was also Highpoint Hanoverian's foundation stallion. Cameo's sire, Contucci who stands at Hilltop Farms, needs no introduction.

We are so excited about Cameo's powerfully successful and proven bloodlines.  We are excited about not only Cameo's strong sire line, but also her very impressive dam line!!!  She is the complete package.

This Spring, Spice was bred to the top German Oldenburg stallion, Stedinger (Sandro Hit/Landadel), for a foal in 2016.  Stedinger was the radiant and unequivocal approval winner of the 2002 Oldenburg Stallion Days in Vechta, Germany. He is a modern, elegant stallion, large framed, with a formidable overall appearance and is highly elastic in every respect. This in utero foal is offered for sale.  Please visit our Sales Page for more information.


A World Class Pedigree







Contucci has long been one of the stars of the Hilltop Farm stallion line-up. His own early talent was showcased when he commandingly won the dressage phase of his 100-day test with a score of 147.11 and finished as a Class 1 stallion with an overall 127.60. Contucci earned six 9’s throughout the testing for character, willingness to work, rideability, and his trot and canter. He then successfully showed in Germany, including winning a 1997 Bundeschampionat qualifier with 9.2 out of 10 possible points. This elegant, young son of the Trakehner stallion Caprimond was clearly a standout and was chosen as a new headliner for Hilltop Farm in 1998.


Caprimond, sire of Contucci and the popular Hohenstein, was Champion of his 100-day test, earned Elite status in 1995, and in 1998 was named Trakehner Stallion of the Year. By the very early age of seven, Caprimond was successfully competing in FEI dressage competitions and he progressed quickly to a very successful Grand Prix career. His excellent character allowed him to serve as a schoolmaster for a young Theresa Wahler and he brought her successfully up to the FEI levels. The Hanoverian Yearbook of Stallions has ranked Caprimond #1 in the breeding values for type and conformation for many years. In the 2012 rankings he was awarded the very high breeding values of 175 for typiness, 122 for limbs, and 144 points for dressage qualities. His offspring continue to be in high demand and he is universally looked to for creating offspring with excellent rideability.

Contucci’s dam Laureen received 9’s on all her gaits at her Mare Performance Testing and an overall score of 8.1. Laureen is by the Celle stallion Lungau who is well known for his dressage ability, his consistency as a sire, and the versatility of his offspring. Akzent II brings even further depth to Contucci’s gene pool. Capricia, a full-sister to Contucci, was the 2001 Grand Champion of Dressage at Devon and was an FEI Dressage competitor under Jane Hannigan.

Under Hilltop’s ownership, Contucci was only lightly shown given his breeding demands and the focus of the farm during that time. However, he developed in his daily training into an FEI-level horse whose generous nature, willingness to work, and freedom of movement highlighted his daily work sessions. Now we are seeing those same magnificent qualities in his offspring and they reinforce the importance of Contucci as a sire.

Contucci has over 80 Premium offspring, annual Inspection Site Champions, numerous Elite and Premium mares, and four Licensed sons. Breed inspectors comment on the consistency they see in the Contucci offspring and note that he is a stallion that really stamps his offspring.

The show ring results of Contucci’s offspring have been even more impressive. Rideability and trainability are qualities all riders appreciate. Contucci offspring have shown great success in eventing including El Cid (ds. Mahon), winner of the American Eventing Championships at Preliminary Level in both 2009 and 2010. Contucci gelding Consensus (ds. Count Brook xx) finished 2nd in his first CIC** event in 2013 and quickly moved up to the CIC*** level with top placings later that season. In 2014, Consensus successfully completed the Rolex Three-Day Event.

Yet not surprisingly, it is in the dressage ring that Contucci’s offspring dominate. He has sired three Reserve Grand Champions of Dressage at Devon and the charming Chiquita HTF (ds. Cordoba) was the inaugural Foal Champion, Champion Filly, and USDF/GAIG Reserve Champion Filly of Dressage at Devon 2008. Her full brother, Cha Ching HTF, followed her success closely in 2011 when he won the Colts of 2011, the USDF/GAIG East Coast Foal Final, and the Devon Foal Championship. In 2005 the USEF named Contucci the Dressage Breeding Sire of the Year based on his offspring’s dressage breed show results. In 2009 Contucci was named the USEF Dressage Sire of the Year based on his offspring competing from Training Level through FEI.
From 2006 through 2009, a Contucci offspring won the USEF Young Horse/Developing Horse National Championships. Hilltop Farm’s Cabana Boy was one of those Young Horse standouts. Bred by Doug & Shannon Langer and owned by Hilltop Farm, Cabana Boy (ds. Bordeaux) was the 2004 Reserve Grand Champion of Dressage at Devon, represented the US at the 2007 FEI World Breeding Championships for Young Horses, and won three consecutive National Championships. At only 7 yrs old, he was winning at Prix St. Georges and Intermediaire I and was schooling all of the Grand Prix work. Contucci has sired multiple USDF Regional Finals Champions and USDF All-Breeds Awards winners. Calimar (ds. Martini) was the 2011 USDF Horse of the Year Prix St. Georges and 2012 USDF Region 9 FEI Intermediaire I Open Freestyle Champion.

In 2013, Con Dia (ds. Cor Noir) competed in the inaugural USDF National Championships to bring home the Fourth Level Adult Amateur Championship. Caruso (ds. World Cup) was winner of the 2012 Region 6 Grand Prix Open Championships and now competes with a young adult in the Brentina Cup. Contucci has numerous other FEI competitors to his credit including Calimar, Chasing Wonder, Cash Advance, and Carmel Crème.

Professionals as well as Adult Amateurs and Junior/Young Riders are searching out Contucci offspring for their winning gaits and easy rideability. An excellent choice for breeders looking to improve the neck, topline, and freedom in the shoulder, Contucci also offers rideability, modern type, light movement and a natural balance. He’s a stallion that offers height without heaviness and has a forward yet sensible nature and engaging personality.
