Sandy, UT (December 12, 2011) — Premier Equestrian, a leading supplier of dressage arenas, horse jumps, arena footing and stable accessories, is pleased to announce their sponsorship of Wellington-based dressage rider and trainer Caroline Roffman. The 23-year-old has set the dressage world on fire and during the fall of 2011 proved she is a rider to be reckoned with when she won the Young Adult Brentina Cup at the Collecting Gaits Farm/USEF Festival of Champions and took home three Reserve National Championship titles from the Markel/USEF National Young Horse Dressage Championships.
“Premier is very excited to be sponsoring Caroline. She is certainly one of the brightest dressage stars of our young generation and, in addition to that, she is a lovely young woman,” said Heidi Zorn, President of Premier Equestrian. “Premier is a world leader in dressage products, from arenas and letters to footing for the arenas, and we are proud that Caroline will be using and supporting our products.”
While still in her teens, Roffman kicked off her career by competing in the Young Riders where she won three bronze medals and the coveted Fiona Ban Memorial Trophy. She also qualified and successfully competed in the Young Rider divisions with several horses including Bulgari 5, Rola, Rigaudon and Accent Agiu FRH.
Since embarking on her professional career, Roffman has been a constant presence in the winner’s circle. In 2010, she competed her horse Bon Chance to the Five-Year-Old Championship title at the Young Horse Championships. Roffman, who trains with Danish Olympian Lars Petersen, trained Bon Chance herself. Roffman was also the youngest rider in the Intermediaire I Championships at the Festival of Champions in 2010.
“Caroline recently started her own training and sales business with dressage rider Endel Ots, and I know they will find great success. Caroline has demonstrated that she can take a young horse all the way to a national title and not every rider can do that,” Zorn said. “In 2010 the International Equestrian Federation awarded Caroline with the FEI Rising Star Award and since that time she has proven them right.”
Roffman is thrilled with the sponsorship from Premier and looks forward to representing the company. “I love all of Premier’s products and a sponsorship from Premier is really a milestone for me. My career has been very exciting so far, and I look forward to working with Premier,” she said.

In 2010, Premier Equestrian was chosen to provide all of the dressage arenas for the FEI World Equestrian Games in Lexington, Kentucky. “It was a great honor to provide the dressage arenas and it speaks loudly about the quality and value of our products,” Zorn said.
