Temptation’s dam Nora is also the dam of Grand Prix horse Tamara and his grand dam has produced several dressage horses successfully competing at advanced level.

At the Danish Warmblood stallion licensing in 2012, no less than five colts by Temptation were shown.

Rock Your World SF - 2010 Dark Bay GOV Filly, born 4-20-10
Rubinus (Rubinstein x Rouletto) x EM Annabelle (Archipel x Wildgraf)
Roxy is a beautiful and sweet mare. She is 30 days under saddle but is already showing her aptitude as a dressage horse. She is walk, trot and canter and is learning how to balance and carry her large gaits! Even with her large bone and laid-back temperament, Roxy is already showing the desirable level of sensitivity that a dressage rider would want. She is forward off the leg and sensitive to the seat. She is easily excepting of new things and enjoys to work and is easy to work with. Roxy is confident in nature, loves people and has lovely elastic gaits and jumping ability! Roxy will be an excellent riding partner for an amateur or professional or an asset to someone’s breeding program.
Roxy's sire, Rubinus is a tall elegant black stallion sired by Rubinstein and out of the Elite mare, Rocca (Rouletto/Montevideo). Rubinus was inspected and approved for breeding by both the AHS and the Hanoverian Verband in 2011, scoring extremely well receiving an overall 8. In 2011 Rubinus debuted in the hunter ring, and proved his versatility with many top placings. Rubinus’ foals are clearly stamped by their father with friendly easy going temperaments, modern type, pretty heads, correct conformation, and superior gaits. Rubinus has been trained to the Prix St. George’s level and plans to return to the dressage ring in 2015 with his new owners.
Roxy's dam, EM Annabelle, successfully competed through Prix St George and was schooling all the Grand Prix movements before joining our broodmare herd. Annabelle has given us 6 fantastic offspring to date. Her 1st colt was exported to Germany to take part in the stallion Licensing there which he completed and was approved. The next 2 were purchased as upper level Dressage prospects and are competing, 1 with a professional and 1 with an adult amateur. Roxy is her fourth offspring, the 5th colt was purchased as an upper level dressage prospect and her last colt in 2013 you can find listed above (Limitless SF). He is simply exquisite!
Bittersweet SF - 2007 Chestnut Swedish Mare
"Bug" is a huge moving mare with enormous potential. She was started under saddle in 2011 and had 90 days of training. Because of her excellent quality we decided she would be a valuable asset to our breeding program so we moved her in that direction. She was bred for the first time and conceived on the first try with just one straw (not dose) of frozen semen to Tailormade Temptation! She delivered a spectacular colt (see above) ! She was such a good mom and had such a nice colt that we had to do it again! The second breeding was to Dutch Superstar Flemmingh, also successful with just one straw (not dose) of semen. She had a beautiful filly (see above). I am now retiring from the horse industry so Bittersweet was started back under saddle again mid May, 2016 and looking for her forever home. Our reports from her trainer have been great! She states that Bug has three very nice gaits, especially her canter which has natural balance and will be easy to collect as you move up the levels! She has the athleticism and sensitivity for the FEI. She is solid training level and schooling 1st. Her leg-yields are coming along nicely and she is playing with some lateral movements. Super work ethic and lots of fun to ride. Great horse for a professional or adult amateur. Whether your looking for a super easy breeding mare, a dressage partner or both Bug would be an excellent choice. 16h
