1998 Jockey Club registered mare by Multiple Stakes Winner and Multiple Graded Stakes Placed stallion Matter Of Honor out of Hippic, dam to Multiple Stakes placing offspring. Barbarees Hill stands a hair under 16.0hh and is chestnut with little white.
Barbarees Hill has three correct gaits, with her canter being the best. She has an extremely powerful canter with excellent mechanics as well as a strong trot. Her walk is her weakest gait. Overall, she mostly lacks in the elasticity and suspension departments; however, such a “fault” is easily corrected by the choice of a suitable stallion as can be seen with Walkyrie E. M. and Bourgault E. M., respectively by Wolkentanz II and Banderas.
Barbarees Hill has the best temperament one could hope for; she is a true workaholic. Always impeccably docile and happy to please, yet not dull. She is focused on the job at task.
Now back under saddle, she is energetic and sensitive, yet the most sensible. She is only ridden in a very sporadic schedule (ie. once or twice a month) and gets to work, no prep required, after being off to broodmare duties for over 7 years!
She is also the best broodmare; showing confidence with her foals, she teaches them the rules of the world as well as to live without fear. They all turn out as good-minded citizens, even without much handling.

Entered in to the Main Mare Book
Make It Fo (by American Chance)
Make It Fo ran 27 times from 2007 to 2011, which is, in itself a testament to his soundness. He retired in 2011 at age 6 with earnings over $43,000.
Weekendonthebeach (by Bold Executive)
Weekendonthebeach ran 28 times from 2008 to 2011. Again, an early bloomer this time, she raced hard and sound until her retirement in 2011 at age 5 with earnings over $80,000. She started her career in Maiden Special Weight classes, usually for top maidens expected to win and move up classes quickly.
Berry Hill (by Trajectory)
Berry Hill ran only 9 times from 2009 to 2010. Another to start in Maiden Special Weight, he was retired most likely for having a case of the “slows” with earnings of only $18,000.
Ring Chest (by Where’s The Ring)
Ring Chest is, to the best of my knowledge, still in racing training. She started her career in 2012 and so far, has had 7 starts and over $7,500 in earnings.
Muscade E. M. (by Tap Day)
Muscade E. M. was born here and never raced. She is the first of Barbarees Hill’s foals to be aimed directly at a sport career. She has been shown on the line once in 2012. She is reactive, adaptable and quick through the jump chute and will start her under saddle training over the winter/spring 2013.
Walkyrie E. M. (by Wolkentanz II)
Bourgault E. M. (by Banderas)
Bourgault E. M. was presented at his GOV inspection alongside his dam and was called back for the final ring. He was named PREMIUM colt. He is an exciting Derby or eventing prospect.
This is a Thoroughbred mare called Barbarees Hill. She was born in 1998. This mare has raced but she has not done anything in sport so far. There is no such thing as a perfect. We always look to change something somewhere. If we are to breed a mare like this, we obviously… She is being bred as a hunter or jumper as opposed to a dressage horse. So we have to look at things slightly differently in that case. Her neck is set on a little bit low, which is typical of a Thoroughbred, her hindquarters could be stronger, but years ago, I think most of the horses, there were excellent on the Canadian Show Jumping team were Thoroughbreds and it was the same on the US Team, Thoroughbreds are not out of the question right now and this mare… this foal is by the jumper stallion Banderas. Banderas is a very very good jumper, he’s not very big and he’s very quick. I saw him at this 70-day and he made a mistake which wasn’t his fault. He jumped into a shadow and he thought the shadow was a rail. He jumped really high and jumped on an angle to jump really correctly and in mid-air, he saw that the pole was not there and if he came down in the trajectory he had taken on, he would have crashed and fallen down. But he corrected himself in mid-air and cleaned it perfectly. This is the mark of an extremely good jumper. So I think you made a very wise choice if you are breeding for a jumper, you are not terribly big yourself and you have a foal of absolute normal size. We will put the mare into the Main Mare Book and the foal will come back for the final ring.

IMO, the tail female line of your mare is superlative. It goes straight back to Selene, one of the best dams of sires who ever lived in the world of TB breeding. She is the dam of the following tremendously influential stallions: 1) Hyperion (by Gainsborough to Bay Ronald); 2) Pharamond by Phalaris, sire of By Jimminy, Cosmic Bomb, Menow (Tom Fool, a seriously great sire; 3)his full brother, Sickle (sireline for Native Dancer among others); 4) a stallion named Hunter’s Moon (by Hurry On) who has been very influential in South America, but is not to be confused with Hunter’s Moon IV by Foxhunter who is a big name in TB sport horses and chasers. Selene was less good as a dam of dams, but your mare traces back to her best daughter in the shed. All Moonshine by the Gainsborough son Bobsleigh is most famous for having produced Mossborough by Nearco, but she also produced many other top quality TBs who have ended up in sport and chasing as well as flat racing. Your mare traces to her daughter with Blue Peter (grandsire of Blue Murmur and Ladykiller and Princely Gift), Eyewash. This is a family that was shipped all over the world, and the mares were no exception. All Moonshine was sent to the US where she produced one filly who was not very successful in the shed. Eyewash’s daughter Mythical was shipped to North America and then back to the UK. She is by My Babu, (by Djebel) who was also sent to the US and is one of the best all time lines for sport. Their daughter, Muskoda, was bred to Nearctic, sire of Icecapade and Northern Dancer and Briartic. You have linebreeding to Neartic on the bottom through Muskoda and Briartic. Briartic was an iron horse for his day with 63 starts over a four or five year career; he is currently found as damsire of the stallion Langfuhr. The Nearctic x Muskoda daughter, Miss Hyperion was both a good race horse and a good producer. She is by the Hyperion line stallion, Tudor Ministrel–and I’m convinced that he is one of the truly great TB influences for dressage type movement. He is the sireline for Lauries crusador, as well as the sire line for the pure dressage horse Arak. Since he is by Hyperion, he traces to Bay Ronald.
On top, Conquistador Cielo is one of the best sons of Mr. P in sport. He is sireline through different sons of at least three 4* event horses, along with being well liked by the hunter folks. I cannot remember who else is from his damline, but there is someone. Given time, I could probably find it. Bold Commander is damsire of a pure dressage horse named Herb Commander that the Poulin daughters rode at NAYRCs and is also in the pedigree, through a daughter, of Electric Cruising, an Irish horse who finished Badminton this spring.
Polite Lady is also the dam of Afleet, a TB stallion who is currently in Japan, but was the sire of Afleet Alex. Afleet has a son in WV named Ten Star Fleet who apparently throws excellent movement–or so I’m told by Christan trainor, the professional event rider who was involved in bringing the Teddy pony up the levels before he was sent to KOC.
I could go but I do hope this is some help to you.
