As one of the ApHC UK Directors, I personally have been extremely busy during the “lock down” coordinating the ApHC UK virtual shows, Redheart Appaloosas is one of the main sponsors and on this basis we believe it only fair not to compete in the competition ourselves. Never thought so much work was involved but […]

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.

The Redheart yearlings will not attend a real show this year but we won’t tell them that! All bathed, trimmed and braided for a photo shoot to enable their owners to enter online photo competitions. We wish them GOOD LUCK X
It certainly has been a very wet winter, we’ve never fed hay in MAY before!!! None the less, the sun eventually came out and the spring grass was evident, the herd certainly will benefit from Dr.Green. Contentment…
Our 2019 Appaloosa’s, Redheart Rookie, Revelation, Relentless & Reflection were taught to tie up as weanlings, as yearlings they are expected to tie up and stand patiently. We think they are doing great! Here’s a little VIDEO
Due to the current situation of COVID 19, it is without doubt social distancing is in place to help prevent the virus spreading and to ensure unnecessary stress on the NHS. This has resulted in ALL social events being cancelled – with good reason and we certainly understand and are not complaining. Many of the […]
Our Stallion – DFR Patahas Redheart certainly is a huge asset to our breeding plan. Disregard the performance record, ignore the genetics reports, forget about conformation, and overlook the temperament and you are left with The Pedigree… These horses in Blu’s pedigree are listed on The Appaloosa Horse Club Hall of Fame (established in 1986 […]
Regent & Reality are supposed to spending 2020 in the ring, as 3yr olds it’s their last in hand season. We are in the same boat as everyone else, due to the current situation about COVID 19. The boys are looking well and certainly showing us exactly the power of the LP gene, beautiful! We […]
Happy first birthday to The Class of 2019, they are all developing differently, both mentally and physically but the main similarity is how they know their routine, 6pm is dinner time every day and they know it!
You may have noticed Redheart Rookie (our 2019 buckskin GAP 5 filly) has been moved from our Mares Page to our Sales Page? Sometimes you need to take another look at your future breeding plan, there is absolutely nothing wrong with Rookie and sometimes you must to let your best breeding stock go! So, […]
We can confidently put the Artificial Insemination (AI) kit away as our last mare scanned in foal. We pray all mares to carry full term and wish them a safe delivery resulting in five healthy mares and foals for 2021. Here is a little clip of our 2020 Stallion Semen Collection – Made easy by DFR Patahas Redheart […]
