"Belle" is a beautiful, intelligent Arabian Mare.2001 Breeders Sweepstakes Breeding Entry. USEF Life Member, 6th in 2011 USEF Horse of the Year for Arab Hunter Pleasure Open. Excellent conformation and classic Arabian face, shows strong *Bask++ heritage (Flame Danzr D + Bella Luna). Great broodmare potential.
I purchased in 2011, and have never regretted it. Sweet disposition and experienced with kids, lunges, crossties, clips, bathes, grooms, and trailers well, doesnt kick,bite,or crib, cooperates for farrier (doesnt lean on handler when picking up hooves!). Prefers having company, so she would do better in a home where she has other horses to socialize with. Currently pasture-board, but she was stall-boarded when I was showing her, and she does well in that setting as long as she gets regular exercise and plenty of turnout time.
Trained Western Pleasure and Huntseat, I have ridden her both disciplines, and taken her on trails (solo and with other horses). With prior owner, 3 years local and regional hunt seat competition. I showed hunt seat in 2011, she placed Top 5 in 2011 Iowa AHA high point standings at end of year. Injured my back and couldnt show her in 2012. Now between my job and changes in my family situation, just can't give her the time and attention she deserves anymore. She is an amazing mare, and I want her to have a home where she can really make use of all her wonderful potential. Prior owner still available on YouTube. Addtl pics on request.
