Larissa Barilar followed in her mother's footsteps in her love for breeding and selling Hanoverians and Oldenburgs. She is passionate about producing high quality sport horses for her clients. At a young age Larissa showed promise by being the youngest in Devon history to win the open amateur handler in 2004 at 12 years of age. Larissa went on to compete in eventing with her mare Tonka Toyz and had several wins in the junior preliminary level. In 2015, Larissa trained her third generation homebred mare, Reggatta Bay, to win reserve champion USDF Material Horse of the Year in the three year old filly division. In the Spring you can find Larissa in the barns nurturing the new generation of High Point Hanoverian horses. On her free time she enjoys spending time with her friends, family and dachshund, Puckie.
