Bobby and Danica have enjoyed spending some time at their home base in North Carolina this month and have been hard at work preparing fine tuning details and preparing for the upcoming summer shows. They have greatly enjoyed seeing both their horses' and their students' progress over the past few weeks and have welcomed several new working students for the summer season!

Danica and Token at TIEC

While the barn has been busy, Danica and Bobby do still have a few openings for training and sale horses. They have an incredibly successful record, and horses truly come into their own under the specialized training that both Bobby and Danica provide. It is not everywhere that your horse can be exposed to the highest level of training from not one but two top riders in eventing and show jumping! Check out this recent testimonial from Jana Lyle Ellerbusch on purchase of Heavenly SCF from Meyerhoffs:

"I had all those horse-shopping horror stories in the back of my head as I embarked on my first ever horse shopping trip this past spring but luckily I ended up at Bobby and Danica’s on my third day of looking and I was done! Heavenly wasn’t exactly what I thought I would come home with (a little greener & only 15h!) but I knew I was going to love her from Bobby’s description of her personality and I did. She is the perfect match for me – in size and temperament and will take me as far as I want to go. Bobby and Danica made the entire process so easy, allowing plenty of time for the initial trial, meeting me with my trainer the next day so we could cross-country school, always being available to answer questions during the process and to this day, several months after I bought her. I love the fact that she wasn’t just a sales horse to them and they still follow and care about her journey with me."

Team Meyerhoff's goal is to find the perfect match for every horse in their barn, and they will ensure your horse is going only to the perfect home. Contact Bobby and Danica today to discuss a specialized training and sales program for your horse!

On the competition side, Danica has seen her months of dedicated training pay off with multiple successful trips to the Tryon International Equestrian Center for their summer show series. All of her horses put in lovely and confident in the high-atmosphere environment at Tryon and delivered several top finishes. Danica rode sales horse Rudolf, to a second place finish in the 1.10 meter jumpers and he also jumped his first 1.15 meter jumper class! Not to be out done, Casanova was also great with double clears in all her 1.15 classes. In addition, one of Danica's students, Corinna Kolschowsky, took home multiple wins with Joan Goswell's RF Estella in the .90 meter jumpers.

Danica also had a special ride at Tryon on her own Dunlavin's Token! This was his first time back in the show ring since the Kentucky CCI4*, and she could tell he was excited and ready to go. As icing on the cake, they took home a sixth place finish in a massive 1.20 meter class to cap off an incredible week.

This past month also marked the end of the spring season for Bobby. He headed north to the Bromont International Horse Trials at the beginning of June with his own Albano, Fortuna, and Rascal Rap. The long drive proved to be well worth it! Fortuna continued her streak of fantastic 2* finishes with another top finish in the CIC2* division, and Albano made his CCI1* debut but certainly didn't show a bit on inexperience with an eighth place finish against tough competition. To cap off the weekend, Rascal Rap put in a stellar performance in the CCI2*, adding only a handful of cross country time faults to his superb 43.9 dressage score to finish in third place! Bobby was so thrilled with the weekend at this lovely event, and it was the perfect way to cap off his spring.

In between competitions, both Bobby and Danica have been teaching numerous clinics all over the United States. They really enjoy getting to watch participants progress over the course of the clinic and find it so rewarding to see the smiles on everyone's faces when they conquer something they never thought they could. They both have a few open dates left for the summer, so be sure to contact them today to get a weekend booked!

This week, Danica is riding at the Charleston Summer Classic Horse Show. She is so excited for the trip down to South Carolina as she has yet to ride at this prestigious venue, and Bobby can't wait to watch Token back in the ring with Danica. Stay tuned for live scores and updates!
