Chin Tonic HS (v. Chin Champ/Quindar/Contender stam 474a) was purchesd from his breeder in Germany, Inken Platen-Hallermund, when he was 2 1/2 years old.
Chin stayed in training with Inken until the age of 4 when he was moved to our Team in Germany to further is education before he was slated to head to the USA to join Will Coleman. Once he joined Will, the two set off on a slow and meaningful path of education and development. Their first big success was a 5th place finish in the Young Horse Finals at Fair Hill when Chin was 5 years old.
Since then, the pair have earned multiple win in all levels up to 4*-L. In 2021 Chin Tonic received the USET Foundation’s Connaught Grant in memory of Bruce Duchossois which helped send Chin and Will to the CCI4*-s in Lumühlen, Germany in 2022 where they finished 12th. After this strong International result, Will and Chin were invited to represent the US as the individual pair in Aachen, Germany for the CCI4*-s where they finished 10th overall.
Chin Tonic HS and Will Coleman have given us high hopes at another bid for an Olympic Games in 2024.

Off The Record (v. Arkansas/Ohio) is one of many horses that Will has sourced through his friend Richard Sheane of the now famous Cooley Farm in Ireland. Off The Record is owned by the Off The Record Syndicate of which Hyperion Stud is a proud partner of.
Bought as a 4-year-old and nicknamed “Timmy”, was a tough and determined youngster. Will Coleman meticulously worked with him and when he turned 8 he blossomed into the sport by finishing as Reserve National Champion in the 3* at Fair Hill International.
Timmy and Will have since won multiple 4* level events, including the 2021 CCI4*-s SAP Cup in Aachen, Germany as well as a member of the 3rd place Team in the Nations Cup. This duo became the first US pair to ever have won the SAP Cup since the show’s inception in 2007. This success then led them to the 2022 World Championships in Pratoni, Italy where the US Team won the silver medal and Will and Timmy finished 7th individually.
