New-Moon Orion is a friendly and athletic stallion with ground-covering paces. He has a superb nature, is easy to work with and can be paddocked with mares.
He placed 1st Male Foal in the Open section on the Trakehners Australia National Assessment Tour 2017, and scored =3rd overall out of 52 horses from all classes on the tour (predominantly Trakehner and Holsteiner breeds). International judge Matthias Werner noted that he has a correct and long-legged foundation, with a well-grown body, long-legged and athletic movements out of a strong and well-muscled hindquarter. A modern kind of sporthorse.
NM Orion’s dam is the purebred Arabian mare Sashenka LEA (by Adras). She boasts a wonderful pedigree of Russian and Polish racing lines, and is a grand-daughter of the famous Vnuchka, an International flat race winning mare purchased from Tersk stud for US$130K in 1988. Sashenka Lea’s sire Adras was time-trialed in flat racing as a 3yo over 800m and 1200m, with times matching the thoroughbreds in training at the same track. Adras progeny are recognised for carrying speed, height, and the temperament for elite competition. Sashenka Lea was approved for Trakehner breeding in 2016 and listed in studbook 1 of the German Trakhener Verband.
Sashenka LEA was started under saddle in mid-2017. She won her HARC maiden sprint over 1150m in Merton, Victoria in October 2017, then moved across into endurance training, to become qualified for open competition under AERA National rules in early 2019. In July 2019 she successfully completed the 160km Tom Quilty Gold Cup National Championship held in Queensland, placing 48th out of 136 starters in the Middleweight division. She has since been exported to the UAE.
NM Orion’s sire is Olymp al Samarra, a Shagya-Araber stallion standing at stud in Germany and needing little introduction on the endurance scene there. Olymp has been approved in three separate stallion performance tests with outstanding results, and is a champion endurance horse with a long career of competing for Germany on the International stage in endurance. Olymp’s progeny are successfully competing and winning in endurance in Europe.
NM Orion has sired two beautiful, strong foals, both with exceptional trainability and character:
New-Moon Odin, our young upcoming stallion (his higher proportion of Shagya-Araber blood suits our breeding program better than NM Orion). New-Moon Odin was awarded Elite status by International assessor Frank Weisskirchen when shown as a foal on the Australian All Breeds Tour in 2020. NM Odin has recently received his Preliminary Stallion License through ACE Group Inc (Australian Continental Equestrian Group).
New-Moon Maia, a gorgeous young filly who missed being shown as a foal due to the 2021 tour cancellation.
NM Orion had an unfortunate paddock accident in 2021 which means he is not suited to a show or competition career. He is sound, agile and balanced and can serve mares. He may be able to resume his ridden training which had commenced just before his accident. Vet inspections welcome.
