I met Hank (Orchid’s Tamino) through Sara Schmitt, who imported him from Holland. I was lucky enough to be the first person who tried him when he came to her barn. He was full of personality, and was super willing , especially for only being three years old. As soon as I rode him I knew I had to have him, so I called my vet to set up a pre-purchase exam. A week later we did his exam and he passed with flying colors! I was thrilled to finally have a horse after a long year of saving and searching.
The rain was still coming down hard during our warmup and what we could do in the footing was limited. So, when they called for the tests to restart, I had no expectations of riding a good test. We just splashed through the puddles, doing the best that we could. It felt like a clean test, but I had no idea where we would place.
