Vita Flex Victory Team Member Caroline Roffman Honored With Invitation to Compete With Sagacious HF at Aachen 2013
Wellington, FL (May 28, 2013) – Vita Flex, a leading supplier of advanced performance products for horses, is proud of their Victory Team member Caroline Roffman for earning the honor of being invited to compete at Aachen this summer with Sagacious HF. She is the first American dressage rider to be invited to compete in the Under 25 Grand Prix division at Aachen, and will make history in that class with Sagacious HF. She is excited about her plans to travel to Europe with Sagacious and her own mare, Her Highness O to train and compete in the prestigious European tours. “I am proud and excited to test my mettle in the European arena, and to be the first American to compete in the Under 25 Grand Prix,” said Roffman. “I will also compete Her Highness O in the small tour at various European CDI competitions including Aachen,” Roffman announced.
Roffman has clearly demonstrated the caliber of dressage riding found in the US. With titles to her name such as 2011 Young Adult “Brentina Cup” winner, 2012 USEF Dressage Festival of Champions National Intermediaire I title, and winner of the US Developing Horse Prix St. Georges Dressage Championship last summer at Lamplight, she is able to travel abroad with the experience of a seasoned rider well beyond her years. The two horses she is taking on the journey are equally impressive.
Sagacious HF, a 1999 KWPN (Welt Hit II x Judity x Cocktail) gelding owned by Hyperion Farms, Inc., came to Roffman in 2012, and the successful team has been riding into the ribbons ever since. Most recently, the pair scored above a 78% during of the 2013 Adequan Global Dressage Festival at the Dressage national 3 in the Young Rider Grand Prix.
Roffman is also planning to take her small tour mare, Her Highness O, on the journey. Roffman and this beautiful black mare, totally ruled many of the shows during the 2013 Winter Equestrian Festival as well, including winning a Team Gold and Individual Bronze at the CDIO Nations Cup in Wellington.
