 A Temptation's first  major victory was being named the unanimous 2000 Ohio Buckeye English Pleasure, Junior Horse Champion. Silvery-white and gifted, A Temptation was then chosen the unanimous 2000 U.S. National English Pleasure Champion, Junior Horse. He went on to become the 2001 U.S. Reserve National English Pleasure Champion Ė all three wins with trainer Tim Shea in the irons. In 2002 A Temptation was awarded the title U.S. National Champion English Pleasure Horse with Brian Murch. This year at the U.S. Nationals A Temptation was awarded Reserve National Champion in Pleasure Driving giving him a total of four National titles.

  A Temptation, a son of premiere mare, A Love Song, to no oneís surprise is fulfilling his expectations as a sire. His first foals, born in 2001, are long of leg, refined, pretty, have good motion, and are receptive to taking direction. Stay tuned! A Temptation has inherited not only his sire and damís talent and work ethic, but also Tempterís ability to sire foals with tremendous strength and drive off their back ends. The first time trainer Brian Murch saw  A Temptation was when he judged him at the 2000 Ohio Buckeye Sweepstakes.

  "He gave me goose-bumps when I saw him," Brian admits. "Since then Iíve ridden him, and I broke him to drive. He has an amazing mind, and is the most athletic horse Iíve ever ridden!"


"A Temptation is simply an amazing show horse. His balance, power, fluidity and refinement are extraordinary. The potential to pass these qualities on to his get denote A Temptation as a future sire of significance, capable of infusing our performance gene pool with a much needed boost of vigor and athletic integrity."
