U.S. Grand Prix rider Caroline Meredith (née Roffman) has sold her rising Grand Prix horse Her Majesty TF to RS2 Dressage in The Netherlands.
Bred in the U.S.A. by Anne Howard, Her Majesty TF is a Hanoverian branded mare by Florencio x Rhodes Scholar. Howard started and developed the black mare herself. Her Majesty produced two foals at the time. In 2014 Roffman acquired her and developed her up to Grand Prix level.
The duo made its national show debut in November 2016 at small tour level, scoring marks up to 75.395% in the Prix St Georges. Exactly one year later Her Majesty TF made her national Grand Prix debut at the Gold Coast Fall Dressage where she received 76.7% from the judges. One month later the duo confirmed their 70% scoring potential at the Global Holiday Challenge competition. Canadian FEI rider Chris von Martels brought the horse to RS2 Dressage's attention and Seth Boschman and Marieke van der Putten flew to Florida to try her out.
The mare sold and has already moved to RS2 Dressage, which is considered Holland's best up and coming dressage centre. The equestrian yard in Groesbeek is owned by entrepreneurs Saskia and Jacques Lemmens and managed by Robin van Lierop. The riders' team also includes Seth Boschman and Marieke van der Putten. They are all coached by Henk van Bergen.
RS2 Dressage owns the 2016 KWPN licensing champion Jameson and recently acquired the 2017 PSI Auction price highlight Zum Gluck (by Zonik).
Roffman is based in Wellington, Florida, with her husband, American show jumping rider Ben Meredith. She is mother to two children and runs a training and sales facility. She has developed and sold her WEG team candidate Her Highness O (by His Highness) to Denmark as well as KWPN licensing champion Etoine (by Vivaldi), which later sold to Swedish Olympian Tinne Vilhelmson.
