Rochelle Speirs and Vollrath Latimer

Vollrath Stud was presented with great success at the HOY 2013 with young horses by Vollrath Lessing and Worldwide P.B.

Where there is sun there is also shadow as our personal great hope of winning the Level 2 title with our LIAISON was dashed. She injured herself during the first night in the makeshift yards and could consequently not be competed due to her injury.

However we are proud producers of quality young dressage horses:

Congratulations to Rochelle Speirs and her mount Vollrath Latimer: Winners of the Level 2 HoY Dressage Title 2013

hoy2013(1)Here is the way to their success:

MFS Level 2 (29 entries)

  • 1st Latimer with 76.25 % and a margin of 2.5 % to 2nd place getter
  • 7th Laureate with 69.37 % – a very respectable placing for Rosanne Rix

Test 2.3 (29 entries)

  • 1st Latimer with 73.125 %
  • 2nd Laureate with 68.958 %

Test 2.5 (28 entries)

  • 1st Latimer with 69.259 %
  • 4th Laureate with 67.037 %

Rochelle Speirs supplied us with accompanying photos and sent this letter:


Hi BernieWe are over the moon with Latimer, he went beautifully at HOY. We certainly did not expect to get the Horse of the Year title.

The first day was the final of the Musical Freestyle which Latimer won on 76%. The photo with the Zilco rug was him winning the MFS accumulator for the season.

You also know he won the Matthews Hanoverian Challenge accumulator for the season at NI champs.

Thank you again for the green stone V-brand, it obviously brought me and Lat luck!

Glad to hear Liaison is getting better.

Kind regards

Congratulations are due also for Rosanne Rix who was placed 4th overall in the HOY rankings with her Lessing / Worldwide PB mare Lindisfarne Laureate, bred by B & J Hooper.

We also want to acknowledge the good placing of Weltweit under Leia McEvoy:

Test 3.2 (20 entries)

  • 7th with 66.286 %

Test 3.4 (21 entries)

  • 5th with 65.135 %

Finally we like to point out the Latimer’s full brother LE ROUGE, rising 2 yr old, is for sale and also as stated previously we would like to get LIAISON into the hands of a competent dressage rider! – go and check them out under “for sale“.
