*Oration is the ONLY stallion in breed history to win multiple National Championships in halter and performance at a National Show.
Named 2013 SPORT HORSE OF THE YEAR by The Arabian Sport Horse Magazine readers! Read story HERE.
Setting a new record for winning the most National Championships at one show, ORATION is the talk of the sport horse world. Imported in utero and bred by Dianne Waldron, ORATION was destined for a career on the racetrack. Sired by the French leading racing sire DORMANE, this bay stallion didn't have the speed his other siblings have demonstrated.
So Dianne contacted Ricci Desiderio to have Oration trained as a sport horse. At his first show, Oration won 16 of his 21 classes entered! Region 15 had him going undefeated in all seven of his classes and additionally as Supreme Sport Horse Under Saddle.
ORATION's next outing was 2009 Sport Horse National Championships, where he won National Championships in 6 classes (Working Hunter Green and ATR, SHUS Jr. Horse and ATR, SHIH Stallions Open, and Hunter Hack ATR) plus Reserve in SHIH Stallions ATH and a Top Ten in Hunter Hack Open. ORATION was also named Supreme Reserve Champion Sport Horse with his rider/handler Michael Desiderio winning top rider honors of SHN.
In September, 2010, ORATION added to his National Titles, winning 7 National Championships along with the title of SUPREME CHAMPION SPORT HORSE of the 2010 Sport Horse National Championships.
2010 National Champion in: Working Hunter - Open; Working Hunter - Amateur; Green Working Hunter; Hunter Hack - Open; Sport Horse In Hand - Open; Sport Horse In Hand - Amateur; Sport Horse Under Saddle - Open; Sport Horse Under Saddle - Amateur.

In 2011, ORATION showed in 4 classes, winning National Championships in all of them: Working Hunter - Open; Working Hunter - Amateur; Hunter Hack - Open & Hunter Hack Amateur
