Barik (Darike x Bacifica)
Barik aka Baz. Barik is a pure bred (French) arab, 2008. He is a relation to Chador through Barik's dam line and therefore is also related to Djelanza.
Barik has previously competed in Arab racing and has been placed and won several times. Within Endurance, Barik is currently at Advanced FEI*** level and qualified for the World Equestrian Games 2014.
Barik is a sweet, genuine horse and a lot of fun. He is always willing to do his job and is thriving in endurance. He likes to be out and going to new places so Endurance is the perfect sport for him.
In 2015, Barik changed sport and we attempted some Racehorse showing classes. We were always the only Arab in the class each time. But he always landed in top 5 during the places.
2016 saw us back on the endurance circuit competing in the sport we love. Abby Chisholm rode Barik in the young rider FEI 120km** class as a thank you for being part of my crew, they came in 1st place and Abby received her 2* status. By the end of the year Barik had competed in 2 FEI rides and overall had 2 wins and 1 third place.
