LEC’s USDF/IDA National Quiz Challenge Grand Champion interns at USDF sponsor Hilltop Farm


This summer, Grand Champion of the 2017 USDF/IDA National Quiz Challenge Elizabeth Affeld ’19 claimed her prize. She completed a four-week internship at Hilltop Farm Inc., a prominent sport-horse facility in Colora, Maryland.

Hilltop describes their internship program as full of “unique opportunities to gain valuable hands-on experience with top FEI competition horses, renowned stallions, and quality broodmares and young horses.” Interns at Hilltop concentrate on either equine management or young horse and breeding management, typically.

Last April, Affeld won the National Quiz Challenge finals after acing two rounds in the lower training division at IDA Nationals in Long Valley, New Jersey. The LEC team walked away with several victories.
