Bella is a gorgeous gentle Arab x TB 14 year old 14.2hh mare. She loves being around people and is wonderful with the smallest of children. She’s well used to dogs, chickens, and all sorts of farm traffic and is happy to live in or out. She is the sweetest pony who needs to find a home where she can enjoy horsey and human company. She's not your typical chestnut mare AT ALL!
We have found that the physical demands of pony club were too much for Bella and she became lame this time last year. She no longer requires any treatment and after a summer of rest in the field, she has been brought slowly back into work. We feel that going forwards she would be best suited to a non-competitive home where she can hack and maybe pop the odd jump on softer ground. She would make a perfect horsey best friend for a little girl or boy.
Bella’s good points
She is an absolute sweetheart with people and loves company.
She is a good doer despite her breeding and is happy in or out.
She is great with the farrier.
She is bombproof hacking out and often leads our wussy welshies past anything scary.
She’s happy to hack out alone as well as in company.
She comes to call and follows you around like a puppy.
She can be left for weeks and be ridden without changing at all.
She has beautiful paces and looks stunning in the dressage arena.
Bella prefers company in the field (but is happy hacking out alone) and can get stressed if she’s left behind
She takes time to load (in a trailer – I’ve not tried her in a box) but we always manage to load her in the end with food and patience
She is currently shod with heartbar shoes on her front feet but these could be probably changed to normal shoes in a few months
I’m desperate to find her a loving 5* home where she can be active and enjoy life. Homes will be vetted as we want the best for our beautiful Bella. She comes with her English leather tack and a selection of good quality rugs.
