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 Clubs, Societies and event organisations have taken this opportunity to promote their interests, their breeds and keep all equine enthusiast’s entertained by way of Virtual events and photo competitions.
As Directors of the ApHC UK, its certainly beneficial to notify our members of these events that will promote the APPALOOSA BREED, one very special event that Redheart’s try to attend each year is Royal Windsor. It one of the most prestigious events and is a highlight for us to promoting our Appaloosas, its a well organised event over 5 days and we recommend a visit, especially in 2021.
The actual physical Appaloosa Class at Windsor is restricted to the British Appaloosa Society, however their “OPEN” Appaloosa Class for Virtual Windsor 2020 attracted a huge amount of interest… here some of the fantastic entries from Instagram at #virtualwindsorclass22, including our own.
Royal Windsor Horse Show announced the Top 10 Finalist today from a total of 79 entries. The judging of this class will be streamed on Saturday 16th May, 2020 as part of Virtual Windsor Show Week.
We are extremely proud to see two of the finalists represent Redheart Appaloosas.

Here at Redhearts we sincerely wish all competitors in the final the BEST OF LUCK!
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!
April 2020 is certainly a bit different from April 2019…Despite the sad news that surrounds the world with COVID-19 we are very much in a happy safe place here at Redheart Appaloosas, for which we are thankful for!
Here is a few pictures of our yearlings after their April Shower
Well, that was the easiest weaning we have ever had…
Maybe because we have four foals, maybe because our new stables have “windows” for them to interact?
Minimal “calling” from the mares and foals, quite honestly, we don’t know why the foals were actually not bothered, so we are just going to go with it!
