SUITABILITY: Western/English Pleasure, Trails, Dressage, etc
LOCATION: Maple Ridge, BC
ADOPTION FEE: By Donation
Bella is an approx 16 year old, 16hh Warmblood x Draft mare owned by a friend of ours who saved her auction in September 2013 with our help.
Unfortunately, due to her owners health concerns, Bella is now looking for anew home.
We were told she could jump on a lunge line and that she was started under-saddle over rails. She can go Western or English and is also said to be broke to drive. She hasn't had much done with her in the past year, so will likely need an advanced rider and a bit of a refresher. She lunges well both directions and knows her commands including: walk, trot, speed up and woah and she can also side-pass so may have had basic Dressage training. That being said, she can be nervous and unsure so will need a patient but firm hand to help guide her.
Bella is a gorgeous girl who is in great shape. She is a well-built girl who stands She has great good manners and stands well for grooming. She picked up her feet and is good for the farrier. She is good to blanket, but dislikes fly masks. Bella is UTD on teeth, shots and worming as well as feet. She is currently shod.
Her owner really does not want to have to re-home her, but it is in both of their best interests to do so. Preference will be given to local homes as her owner would really like the opportunity to visit her. Bella would make an amazing friend and partner for someone.
Signed adoption contract and updates are a must. She is adoptable by-donation to J&M Acres Horse Rescue. Please contact us today if you are interested in giving her a new home.
