German Oldenburg Gelding
Harvest Moon is an elegant modern dressage horse with an extremely attractive head and excellent neck attachment. He has three very good gaits and is extremely soft and naturally forward to ride. He enjoys work and can be ridden safely inside or outside and hacks alone or in company. He is schooling Second Level at 5 years of age and has offered flying changes. Standing 16.3hh with his dark black coloring he makes in elegant picture with his white highlights. He has a full set of 30+ baseline radiographs and is clinically sound with excellent flexions passing a rigorous PPE in 2017. He is normally shod in front with excellent feet. He is a happy, social horse and enjoys full day turnout with friends. He traveled to Wellington Fl for the 2018 season for training and exposure and handled the shipping and travelling wonderfully. He was purchased by Emily Hill as a training project and has been in professional training for the last 1.5 years and is now ready to move onto his next life partner. He trailers, clips, stands for the farrier, baths, stands quietly to be mounted and has no vices under saddle.
Harvest Moon is sired by the imported Elite Hanoverian stallion Harvard (Hohenstein x Cardinal xx) who is a proven sire of excellence. His legacy is quickly establishing in Europe and North America. Harvard has produced multiple Licensed sons, numerous State Premium, Special Premium and Premium Mares, Elite Auction Foals, a Bundeschampion, a finalist at the World Championships for Young Dressage Horses, successful International Advanced Dressage competitors, high scoring Oldenburg mares, in 2008 he dam-sired the Champion Filly of Germany, Foals of Distinction, Top Hanoverian Foals and legions of Premium Foals. A strong transmitter of type, Harvard’s are stamped with his elegant head and convey his kind, sensible disposition. Harvard is a very modern type and sire of talented dressage and hunter progeny. One of his greatest hallmarks is the wonderful temperament that he passes on to his offspring. At his performance test in 1999 he scored a perfect 10 for temperament and 9's for character, willingness and ability to work, constitution and rideability.
Harvest Moon's dam Dance by Duntroon was imported from Germany and successfully competed to Advanced Level in dressage. She is a beautiful high quality mare and represented Canada at the North American Young Rider Championships. The combo of (Harvard x Duntroon) blood has been extremely successful in Germany producing the Bundeschampionate Finalist, Advanced Level Dressage Horse and Licensed German Oldenburg stallion Happy Diamond (Harvard x Duntroon), the Advanced Dressage horse Hans Im Gluck 5 (Harvard x Duntroon) and the Advanced Level Dressage Horse Harbinger (Harvard x Duntroon). We hope Harvet Moon will follow in his dam's and their impressive footsteps.
