Today we went to support Redheart Raven (Peyres Catori Cat x DRF Patahas Redheart) debut outing competing in a young stock class at Hulks Farm. His performance was flawless…huge congratulations to his owner Naomi (who is too young to compete) but to her mother Emma who has never shown before… A well deserved 2nd place, […]

About Paula Cooper
As a child I was brought up on a working farm in Cwmbran, South Wales. I used to spend my days pulling up docks in the fields, creosoting the fences, white washing the stables and washing out the water tanks in order to have a pony.
I obtained many other rides in my early teenage days and learnt a little from each one. Every horse was different in size, nature, ability and scope. I very quickly learnt how to achieve the very best from that individual in whatever discipline.
At the age of eighteen I headed off to West Oxfordshire carrying on my education in land management and business studies in the Thoroughbred world. During this time many doors opened,
In 1997 a vacancy at a National Hunt Trainer in Gloucestershire opened a new chapter in my life with the availability of stables and land located nearby. Confidently starting training and competing point to pointers as a hobby.
2007 I started working at The Three Counties Equine Hospital LLP. This has been the most enjoyable and rewarding place of work. I am proud to be part of a dedicated team moving forward in the Veterinary world, full of new and exciting technology to aid the equine industry.
With no horses in my life during my “brood mare” days, I can honestly say it must be a disease in the blood! It wasn’t long before I longed for some kind of “equine interest” and challenge .
Off to France to import Peyres Catori Cat in 2008 and off to Austria to collect and import Princesse Pascale in 2009!
My foundation stock to build upon, Redheart Appaloosas today.

Redheart Reality (aka Tally) is out of our very precious mare Princesse Pascale (aka PP), he is by our first homebred horse Hevans EV Cataorrius (aka Reus) who has just exceeded all our expectations in every way. We have only used this mating once because Reus is related to our other mares and you can’t […]
When mares give birth, their natural instinct is to protect their foals, we would never turn a mare and foal out within a herd from day one and what makes our situation worse in March 2022 is the wet weather and muddy ground. We dare not risk any infection via an umbilical chord with the […]
It is not our desire or goal to cross two homozygous LP Appaloosas, we don’t want to 100% create CSNB horses but when you have two exceptional Appaloosas and all you want is a filly then it’s worth taking the chance. Our 50/50 for gender paid off and we were absolutely delighted to see the […]
At 334 days Redheart Pascalius decided to give up her 2022 foal, the foaling was textbook and other than a 3am delivery everything went extremely well. It just so happens the 19th February is my mother’s birthday (who has sadly passed away), hence the new-born name, Remembrance. Mum lost her first Appaloosa in 2009, […]
It’s been a long time in the making but with the support and encouragement of the “Redheart Family” we have now established our own branded merchandise, we are very proud of the embroidered design of our logo. Thank you Equi-BlingUK for your excellent customer care and attention to detail, the logo is perfect. If you wish […]
The 5 Redheart broodmares are looking great, feeling fine and totally relaxed in their routine as we start to count down the days to foaling and pray for the safe arrival of our 2022 foals. We are expecting two foals from Reus and three foals from Blu, all have full siblings except Reus x Ghost, this […]
