Marc Houtzager and Stoeterij Sterrehof have announced that Marc’s wonderful partner Sterrehof’s Tamino (Numero Uno x Farmer) is being retired from the sport. The now fifteen year old KWPN gelding have been very successful under the Dutch rider and was a big contributor to the Dutch team Silver at the Olympic Games in London 2012. In 2012 the combination also won the Grand Prix at the Gucci Masters in Paris as well as the World Cup leg at Olympia to mention some. In addition to this the two have been a part of the Dutch Nations Cup team numerous times and they have won several big classes over the years including the Mercedes-Benz Prize in Aachen and the Grand Prix in Rotterdam. The gelding also topped the WBFSH ranking for a period in 2013.

Sterrehof’s Tamino had a longer break after an injury in 2013/2014, but made a comeback in December 2014. According to dehoefslag.nl Marc Houtzager and Stoeterij Sterrehof has decided to retire Sterrehof's Tamino as the feeling is that he will not be able to once again perform at the top level of the sport. We would have loved to see more of Sterrehof’s Tamino, but we wish him a happy retirement instead.
