Bobby is an international event rider who strongly believes that starting horses correctly is the key to their future success. Bobby was born in San Francisco, California; he learned to ride on his grandparents’ ranch in Willits, California. It was through Pony Club at age seven that Bobby was first introduced to the sport of eventing.
After graduating from De La Salle High School in Walnut Creek, California, Bobby met two-time Olympian Stuart Black. Stuart was impressed with Bobby’s riding and offered him a working student position, which Bobby accepted.
Working with Stuart, Bobby learned the ins-and-outs of caring for four-star horses and was competitive and winning at the preliminary level. He then joined the O’Connor Event Team in Ocala, Florida, training under David and Karen O’Connor and competing at the intermediate level with multiple horses. In the winter of 2006, Bobby was hired as a rider for record-setting Grand Prix show jumper Aaron Vale. Working with Aaron gave Bobby a great opportunity to learn about the show jumping industry while training and competing.
In 2007 Bobby started Meyerhoff Show Horses. He takes pride in producing his horses from the ground up and has focused his business on producing young horses to sell while continuing his journey to the top.
Most notably, Bobby started and produced a young stallion named Freedom, bred and shown by Redfield Farm. Freedom was top placed at the 2013 Keuring at Iron Spring Farm in Coatesville, Pennsylvania, was the 2014 Four-Year-Old International Jumper Futurity Eastern Regional Grand Champion, and is currently winning in the Six-Year-Old Jumpers with Redfield Farm.
Bobby’s knowledge and strong sense of professionalism have landed him on the list of Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event contenders for three straight years with Dunlavin’s Token. Completing Rolex in 2015 and 2016 have added to Bobby’s accomplishments as a horseman and competitor.
I enjoy helping and training people who want to learn and strive to be better horsemen and women. I always want to be and to do the best I can at all times and although I have done different things in the past my focus now is to produce, train, and compete four-star event horses. – Bobby Meyerhoff
