What An End…..

The third show of 2016, held by the Appaloosa Horse Club UK. An abundance of classes open to and supported by ApHC UK members at Rodbaston Equestrian Centre.

Wonderful to see Appaloosa horses from all ApHC UK registers, the USA register (A), the British register (B), the Characteristic register (C) and the Part-Bred register (PB).

Redheart Pasculius’s last show before joining the broodmares, RESERVE SUPREME CHAMPION!

What an end……

“Wild Card” @ High Horse….

Redheart Pascalius has done us proud again, this time competing at Rodbaston Equestrian Centre, an Open Gala show organised by the High Horse Showing Society. This successful event had the most amazing atmosphere with a huge number of competitors. The weather was glorious and Evee gave an excellent performance against quality horses.

Unfortunately, we couldn’t stay for the Championship due to fencing duties at home. One of the many delights of the day, being awarded a “Wild Card” to compete in an evening Championship class, we did the honourable duty of declining but what an achievement for us.

Not the “wild” day Evee had at Netley Hall a few weeks back!

A Dream Come True……

I try to keep the “News” updated with show reports and events at the stud that I think are relevant, along with each horse’s profile as their details change or occur.

We use the Social Media Facebook page “UK Appaloosa Horses” as our sponsored effort to promote the awareness of the rare purebred Appaloosas here in the UK.

The most relevant news, Redheart Appaloosa Stud has moved Counties, from Gloucestershire to Worcestershire. We have a quaint country cottage with enough land to cater for our expanding herd. We are starting with a blank canvas and applying for planning permission for an agricultural barn and stable barn, ensuring we can offer the mares, foals and stallions adequate facilities for breeding.

Until the paddocks are established, our stallion Reus is at a local livery yard, Areion Equestrian. We could not be happier and relieved because many livery yards do not take stallions, due to misunderstanding! The owner Jo, runs this professional livery yard, nothing was compromised during our stay. We would like to say a huge thank you to Jo and her team, what a delightful yard to be part of. Reus was a good boy and we made use of their fantastic facilities before bringing him home, his own paddock away from the mares.

I can now see the horses from my bedroom window, such a precious sight and a dream come true.
