From the day Caroline Roffman discovered dressage at the age of eight on the back of a retired eventing horse, she knew exactly what she wanted to do with her life. Massachusetts native Caroline convinced her parents to pick up and move to Wellington to pursue her dreams to become a serious contender in the international dressage arena and to make a living riding, teaching lessons, breeding, training and selling dressage horses.
When time is your most precious commodity anything that helps to support performance is vital -- Caroline trusts Vita Flex performance products on her horses to help her maintain that competitive edge while she keeps busy as a new mother, equestrian, life long horse lover and trainer and owner of Lionshare Dressage located in the heart of Wellington.
“Horses are more than just a business to me. I love my horses and I want to make sure they have every advantage to feel, look and perform their best. That’s why I trust and use Vita Flex performance products. When I ride down the centerline I want to be certain my horse has what he needs to maintain that competitive edge.”
Caroline Roffman’s Favorite Vita Flex Products
“Dressage is a very strenuous sport for horses. I want to make sure that we replace essential electrolytes and minerals that they lose when they sweat while training and competing – that’s why I use AccuLytes Electrolytes powder to help maintain proper electrolyte balance.“
“It’s more than just to maintain a competitive edge, when you love horses the way I do you want them to feel and look their best. Accel Lifetime nurtures my horses and helps me to ensure that they stay healthy throughout their lifetime.
“Dressage is a demanding discipline. I give all my horses Equinyl Joint Formula with Hyaluronic Acid to help lubricate their joints and maintain proper joint health so that they can keep performing their best.”
Lactanase is my first line of defense to help combat muscle fatigue and to help my horses recover after the exertion of competition.
