Due to Chubarry Stud closure, Ru was offered back to us, unfortunately due to her close bloodline here at the Stud we confirmed we were happy to have her but would have to sell her on. Wendy advertised her for sale and was very fortunate to find a 5* home with Denise.
To help out, we collected Ru from Herts on the 4th July and delivered her to Denise the next day near Kelso. It was lovely to meet Denise and her family, I knew Ru would definitely be loved and have a forever home.
Ru and Denise carried on the showing with Ru, it’s no surprise how well they have done, such a lovely stamp of a mare…She joins the family farm Kaimknowe. The Kaimknowe Prefix covers their pedigree flocks of Shetland and Norfolk Horn Sheep, herds of Pygmy, Bagot and Golden Guernsey Goats. Appaloosa and Arab horses. Experienced breeder of Standard Smooth Dachshunds, what better life could Ru have.

Early 2022, Ru is doing well out with the herd and enjoying life as a 4-year-old, she has been “started”.
End of 2022, Ru has been ridden away and has shown great promise under saddle competing in the on-line Trec. She scored three 10’s in her first test with positive comments from the Judge, an overall mark of 91/110, what a promising future this mare has and hat off to Denise.
We are so very proud of Ru (what a splendid horse she has developed into) and Denise, they are a great team and have been lightly participating in TREC and participating in their Scottish Endurance Riding Club (SERC).
When we say, “we pride ourselves selling only what we would purchase”, we mean it 100%.
From the bottom of our heart, THANK YOU, THANK YOU & THANK YOU Denise, we are just overwhelmed to have been given the opportunity to have Ru back.
We NOW have our Peyres Catori Cat line, to breed forwards with Fire, but it’s been the hardest decision to let Redheart Royalty go… although it’s nearly 5yrs since Ru left the Stud, she surely remembers us ALL.
Ru is currently in isolation, but she’s settled and soon will be turned out with Reus, her half brother and will later join Rez & Rene (all by our stallion Blu, Fire’s future wife’s).
Speechless for words…
Ru’s page shall remain here and be updated as and when “WE” have notifications of her progress through life!
