Redheart Appaloosas & The Malvern Hills….

The Malvern Hills are part of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with scenic views over both Herefordshire and Worcestershire. The Hills run north/south for about 13 km (8 miles), between Great Malvern and the village of Colwall, and overlook the River Severn valley to the east, with the Cotswolds beyond.

The highest point of the hills is the Worcestershire Beacon at 425 meters (1,394 ft) above sea level. The hills are famous for their natural mineral springs and wells, which were responsible for the development of Great Malvern as a spa in the early 19th century.

Until recently, Malvern water was bottled commercially on a large scale and sold worldwide.

We never take for granted the view we have, here at the Redheart Appaloosa Stud. 

The Inquisitive Nature of Horses….

With no stables available (yet) our fencing, ditching and general paddock maintenance during 2017 were accomplished with the help of the Redheart horses. Their inquisitive nature and the mares laid-back attitude have given the foals great confidence when it comes to machinery.


Well, you can’t take foals to the traffic, bring the traffic to the foals…

Regent and Reality have certainly been desensitized by human contact in their first five months of life!

 

Redheart Pascalius – 2016 IN HAND PERFORMANCE RESULTS….

Every year we sign up to and compete in the Inhand Performance under The British Appaloosa Society, Appaloosa Horse Club UK, and the United Saddlebred Association.  

Our home-bred filly, Redheart Pascalius finished her in hand showing campaign last year. We are proud to add these awards to her Performance Record, a credit to her as a young filly and worthy of her joining our broodmares.

A Reserve Champion certificate from the Appaloosa Horse Club UK for their Open Appaloosa Horse Club Performance Awards.

Two beautiful rosettes from The British Appaloosa Society, the Highest Points for Youngstock and the Inhand Section.


From the United Saddlebred Association, she received a Champion certificate for their non-saddle bred Inhand and utility classes along with two gorgeous sashes.

We are aiming to cover her with DFR PATAHAS REDHEART early next year, the resulting foal will be black based (AA ee) with 6 generations of Appaloosa (GAP 6). 

Thank you to the Societies for sending such lovely memorabilia.

 

 

Another quality mare for our breeding programme!
