Osborne 9 is a 17+hand 2006 Westphalian gelding Lynn found in Germany. Osborne was purchased by Alton Quanbeck and a small syndicate of wonderful owners who enjoyed watching him compete through the two-star level.
After flying in from Germany and arriving at Handlen Farm in April 2012, he learned a few words of English, became a master of gridwork, and competed at Seneca Valley and The Maryland Horse Trial placing 1st and 2nd, both at Training level. In the spring of 2013 Osborne placed third at the Virginia CCI* and he moved up to Intermediate with great success. In 2014, Osborne had a top-ten finish at the Fair HIll CCI2*.
