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!

It will soon be the start of the show season for Redheart Appaloosas, so before we start we decided to give our old faithful lorry a treat, so we called in ENGINE CARBON CLEAN. This lorry has taken us all over the UK and the EU clocking up over 239 thousand miles. We were […]
Looking back at two years with Talismans Redheart. Ghost was imported from France and is our smallest mare, currently standing at 15hh, she has an adorable kind and quiet personality. We like her very much, the last imported horse added to our gene pool… Unfortunately, whilst playing with the young stock, she sustained an injury […]
A look back at 4 years with Caricks Redheart. Myka joined us at the age of two in November 2016 from Doncaster, England. She completed one season in the ring and was mainly shown by a junior. Myka always looks for the mud and has a very affectionate character. Standing at 15.2hh she’s a great […]
A look back at 11 years with Princesse Pascale. Imported from Austria as a weanling, Dam of Evee, Ben, Reality and Rookie and Grand Dam to Revelation. PP spent her young stock days in the ring before being backed and ridden away. Standing at 16hh she’s the tallest and most laid-back mare we have, she’s […]
A look back at 7 years with Redheart Pascalius. Evee is our first homebred filly retained to enhance our bloodline breeding forward. Sibling to Ben, Reality and Rookie, Dam to Revelation and she’s by the same sire as Reus. Evee spent her young stock days in the ring before being started. Built like a table, […]
A look back at 12 years with Peyres Catori Cat. Imported from France as a weanling, Dam of Reus, Easter, Blanc, Regent and Relentless and Grand Dam to RU and Reality.

Foundation Appaloosas registered with the Foundation Appaloosa Horse Registry (FAHR) are exceptionally high in numbers in the USA (140 registered in Washington alone) compared to other Countries… Redheart Appaloosas are very proud to have put the Foundation Appaloosa on the map here in the UK.
You’ve made your memories, experienced the highs and the lows. They’ll soon become anniversaries, so make plans before this dawn. Look up, look forward, sit high and ride on, because before you know it, 2020 will soon be gone. Happy New to you from Redheart Appaloosas x
