RODGER DODGER DR (Riverman x Wilma III) This captivating, charismatic black colt could lead his own way to the dressage ring, or perform to the highest levels in showjumping. After his illustrious career he can continue as a breeding sire of his own merit. Keep your eyes on this one!
Sire: RIVERMAN (Redfort/RebelZ) x Lendego (Landfgraf I) x Calypso I) RIVERMAN’s movement, jumping style and scope, and his impressive type have captivated breeders’ attention around the world and the results of his offspring speak highly for his influence. Based on the success of his offspring, Riverman has been named 5 times the USEF Eventing Sire of the Year and he was honored for 3 consecutive years with the South Pacific Award as the Top-Ranked US-based Show Jumping Sire by the USEF, he versatile athleticism that Riverman’s offspring so consistently display has translated into his offspring being successful at the upper levels in all disciplines. Each year we see numerous Riverman offspring competing at the FEI Levels in dressage. A pair of Riverman sons represented the US at the World Pairs Driving Championships twice. Riverman’s jumping ability transmits strongly and he has sired many Grand Prix jumpers and A-circuit hunters as well as Advanced Level eventers. He has many approved sons as well as Premium/Elite daughters to his breeding record and his positive impact on breeding will be felt for generations.
Dam: WILMA III (Weltmeyer x Donnerstar(Donner Bube x Salty)) Sired by the famous Weltmeyer, out of the Donner Bube mare Donnerstar. This mare was injured in training at an early age, and missed the opportunity of a sport career. Her breeding of Donnerhall crossed with Weltmeyer stamps her with movement and rideability. Her first foal carried the blood of Rubinstein, which completed her pedigree of the three famous dressage lineages. Her foal this year by Hilltop’s Riverman gives you the dressage blood with Olympic level jumping.
