Bella (registered name “Picturesque Serenade”) is an 8 year old, 15.3+ hand, registered German Warmblood mare by the Oldenburg stallion Silvio. She has local show experience with the Southwest Virgina Hunter/Jumper Association, where she competed in the green hunters. She is eligible for everything and has a lead change.
Bella is competing at the beginner novice level in combined training competitions. She consistently gets 8’s on gaits and great dressage scores.
Bella hunted with the Rockbridge Hunt last season and really liked it! She never offered to kick hound or horse, not spooky, stood patiently at checks and was great on her feet in our trappy hunt country–very handy and surefooted.
Although she seems to particularly enjoy and excel at hunting and dressage, Bella could go in any direction–her fancy movement and stylish jump will win prizes in the hunter ring, but she has plenty of scope for the jumpers and is loaded with potential as an event partner as well. She hauls and travels with no trouble and is easy to handle and ride at the shows.
Bella is an easy keeper, has no vices, is sound with no maintenance, current on everything (including dental and chiropractic care) and is ready to go! Bella is a wonderful fit for an amateur with show or hunting ambitions, or for a professional to bring along.
