Sire of FEI Dressage, Jumpers, and Eventers

Riverman's sire Redfort was a Grand Prix dressage horse. Redfort is by Rebel Z, the full brother to Ratina Z, the 1992 Silver medalist in Show Jumping. Through Riverman’s dam, Alexis III, we gain the influence of the great stallions Landgraf, Calypso II, Cor de la Bryere.

Riverman was the Reserve Champion of his Holsteiner stallion licensing and stood as a Verband stallion for three years, producing high percentages of premium offspring. Not long after his importation, Riverman won the 1995 Grand Championship at Dressage at Devon. His clearly suspended and elevated movement showed tremendous fluidity and suppleness, and combined with his beautiful type captured the attention of North American breeders.

Riverman’s offspring have been successful at the upper levels in all disciplines. Cody and Veraki are both competing at the FEI Levels in dressage. Cody and Rivage were the 2007 US National Champions for Pairs Driving and twice represented the US at the World Pairs Championships. In the hunter ring, horses such as Diamond River, Ripken HTF, and Ravenette have been very successful under amateurs and professional riders alike. Rebecca X, was a successful international Grand Prix jumping competitor for many years. In the US, Reno and Honfleur are both Grand Prix competitors. River of Dreams won thirteen Grand Prix in 2012 & 2013, and now is competitive in the Adult Jumpers with his amateur owner.

Riverman offspring excel as three-day eventing horses. R-Star, River King, Slate River, FDF Riverina, and Fleeceworks Royal have been listed on the FEI WBFSH Eventing Rankings list. In 2013 R-Star finished 8th in the Rolex Kentucky Event and in 2014 she won the Galway Downs CCI3*. Riverman was the 2009 & 2010 USEF Eventing Sire of the Year and was honored South Pacific Award winner from 2011-2014 as the Top Ranked US-based Show Jumping Sire.
