Half Moon Romance's

Half Moon Romance is the perfect all-around athlete. He began his career as a racehorse, and
raced successfully for six years, retiring sound with total career earnings of over $77,000.00 USD.
After retiring from the track, Half Moon Romance was inspected with the Canadian Sport Horse
Association, and was Reserve Site Champion, earning an overall score of 77%! He then began training
for a new career in the show ring - both under saddle, as a hunter/jumper, as well as in hand, as a line
horse. ‘Romeo’s’ first line show was the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair 2006, where he was
Grand Champion Thoroughbred Stallion and Reserve Champion Canadian Sport Horse Stallion.
He also won the Jockey Club Challenge Trophy.  In
early 2007, Half Moon Romance began his dressage training and has been advancing steadily.  
'Romeo' is currently schooling in preparation for the 2012 season, where he will make his official
dressage debut at second level.  He is currently schooling at home in the double bridle, working on
upper level movements.  He will also continue to show on the line, so look for him at the CSHA shows
this season!

Romeo’s offspring are excelling  in many different disciplines, including hunter, jumper, dressage,
eventing, driving, racing and line classes. If you’re looking for conformation, temperament, pedigree and
athletic ability, look no further than Half Moon Romance!  Mare owners are RAVING about the
temperaments and trainability of their Half Moon Romance foals!  Judges and inspectors have nothing
but fantastic remarks about the Half Moon Romance foals presented!  All that have been presented for
inspection have been approved, and several are Premium foals!  

Half Moon Romance's sire 'Soaking Smoking', sired some very nice racehorses, and shortly after
his passing, his offspring began excelling in the show ring, as hunter/jumpers as well!  It's no
wonder Half Moon Romance inherited this versatile natural athletic ability.  Romeo competes in
dressage, in hand, shows in western dressage (was 2nd his first time out), jumps, hacks out and we
even ROPE cattle off of him!  There isn't anything he WONT do.  He's a lovely mover, with 3 excellent
gaits - a ground covering trot naturally balanced, rhythmic canter and a walk with a huge overstep!  He's
very well put together, with a wonderful build, lots of substance, very correct and he has just the right
amount of refinement.  All this, on top of probably the best temperament we've ever seen on a horse and
an outstanding pedigree!  He has a tremendous work ethic, a delightful attitude and never puts a foot
wrong.  You have to see this guy to believe how truly wonderful he is!  We just can't say enough good
things about him.  Don't take our word for it though - come and meet him and see for yourself!
