Harbledore Acres I Horse&Hound Interview

  • intro

    Harbledore Acres is a top-class home for exceptional horses. For many years Francis Verbeek von Roy, a talented competitor and highly esteemed trainer, has developed a small farm into a modern facility of high standard. The main activities of Harbledore are training and competing in English disciplines. A lot of attention is drawn to match riders and horses. Our staff, with their high experience and knowledge, does their best to meet the expectations of every customer. Anyone who buys or leases a horse in Harbledore will get support and help with training. We also focus on developing the talent of riders. Every year a number of young ambitious riders come to our stable to get a unique experience in training, competing and education. Many of our students choose equestrian as their future career and successfully compete at international shows. Breeding is on the second place in Harbledore, yet we have several bloodlines of different warmbloods to choose from. All our stallions are carefully selected with the aim of developing breeding. They have shown good results in competitions and have kind and friendly characters.

  • Harbledore Acres has recently accepted a new student from Harptury College for our experience exchange programme. Mary hasn't got her horse to work with, so for now she rides everyone for a bit. She has proved herself to be a very talented and responsible rider, and recently she was allowed to ride Valegro HA. No need to say that she was over the moon :blush:

    What a lovely picture for the start <3 Valegro is looking awesome :D Good Luck with your student :3 ours are a sort for themselves xd

  • Love this picture and the very warm brown tone in the background! And Valegro is of course stunning as always <3

  • Oh Valegro, he is such a beautiful horse! You just know what works with him and it really shows! Which dressage saddle is that by the way? :heart:

  • OOOH your blog looks amazing! :heart_eyes: Pretty Valegro working hard with Mary :grin:

  • I'm sad I missed your join.me, if I heard it correctly in the general chat! Would've loved to watch you edit this stunning photo :heart_eyes:

  • I am SO happy to have a direct son from Valegro HA! He looks top, I'd be over the moon as well!

    Amazing editing, I was in your join.me for a short time but the amount of time you put into detail is something I personally don't have always patience for. Great job!

  • Lovely Valegro! <3 He looks great as usual and your edit is flawless! :heart_eyes: I have notice that his daughter Flirt looks more and more similar to her dad so it will be so fun and exciting to see how she develops when she's older <3

  • This looks SO AMAZING! I'll just sit here and stare at the edit for a bit, ok?

  • @Iris-Hammel thanks a lot Iris!
    @Alice-Palmer thanks! That's a saddle by Salimana, you can find it at Russian ES.

    @Mandy-McAvoy don't worry, I'll host more joinmes. I'm already thinking about the next picture, but need to build the arena for it first :D
    @Lidija-Rotherford thank you! I'm already quite impatient too but on joinmes I try to do my best^^
    @Christina-Lindblad thanks Christina! I hope Flirt will be that successful too one day <3
    @Nadia-Kilian haha, thanks! Fell free to sit here as long as you want :D

  • Seriously your horses kill me <3 They are just amazing! Valegro is stunning and your editing is so REAL! :D
