Vilamoura Tour 2014
Our Blog

The horses safely arrived home from Vilamoura Portugal this morning. They have been jumping out there for 4 weekends.


There was no Wi Fi at the show this year hence the lack of updates!


We took four horses, Temple Ryefield, Lux Fabulous, U2 and Sandors Legacy. 

Ryefield had a win and several placings, U2 was in tremendous form with consistant placings in the top 5 throughout the show in 1.30m classes. Lux Fab also had a win and placings in 1.30m to 1.35m classes.

Sandors Legacy was stepped up a level there to test him a little bit, and he coped well with steady double clears in 1.40m to 1.45m classes.

Paul was training Sarah Mousley and Frances Moiser out there too and they were both pleased with their horses progress.

Our two boys Charlie and Henry enjoyed the warmer weather, being outside every day was so good for them after being inside nearly all winter!

These horses are now having a few easy days in the field before the summer season preparation starts, so Paul has taken this opportunity to go looking for some new young horses to build up his next up and coming team.

Pictured is Temple Ryefield in the big class on the tour, and Charlie on one of the shows tractors! His favourite past time!

Long and overdue Update!
Our Blog

Our last blog was for Scope show at the end of August! An update on what we have been up to is long overdue!! 

For starters we have a new arrival in our family with the birth of our son Henry George Barker. He was born in September and has already been to shows with us! 

Henry's first show was HOYs , he came with us to watch Paul on two novice horses in the Newcomers final. Sandors Legacy had the winning time but one down in the jump off and finished 4th, Calmond was also 6th.

Since then the horses have been ticking away with two shows Addington and South View where Lux Fabulous, U2, Sandors Legacy and Ryefield have had numerous placings and wins. Ryefield was 2nd in the GP at South View.

The horses are being kept in light work now keeping fit but fresh ready for the Vilamoura Sunshine tour in February.

In the meantime Paul is working hard on our young horses and doing a few local shows with them. We are both doing a lot of coaching, making the most of being at home! Contact us if your needed some help with your horse or pony.

We are looking forward to Christmas with our two children!
