Hubert Barbe started as an assistant to his father, trainer Jack-Hubert Barbe, a 6-times Jumps champion trainer in France, before settling as a bloodstock agent in 1993. He was one of the first to source French jumpers to Britain and Ireland, mainly for Martin Pipe. They developed a very successful relationship until the trainer’s retirement. Hubert now works on the French market for patrons such as J P McManus, who won 6 races at the 2020 Festival with French-bred horses.
Hubert Barbe is based in Chantilly and is a member of the French Bloodstock Agents Association (AFC): https://www.courtiersafc.com/hubert-barbe.
