Team #393: Peter Kalman and India Ink

Peter’s fifith Century Club ride was India Ink. “Inky” is a 25 year old Oldenburg Mare, owned by Dorie Vlatten Schmitz. “Inky” is a school horse that teaches many children and a “sweetheart”.

Peter has enjoyed a rich equestrian filled career filled with talented horses. Looking back now, it was all possible due to two ponies who carried small boys safely on their backs away from the war. This great love and appreciation is evident to all who have seen Peter ride and care for his horses.

When asked of his future plans, Peter said, “With God’s blessing, I have a 9-year-old son, Brody, who we adopted last November. I have to mold him into a man of character. As for dressage, I’d like to do more Century Rides. Aren’t there ten levels in dressage?”
