18.3+H BLACK Purebred American Shire Mare - Rides & Drives
PENDING SALE Bella is an absolutely breathtaking purebred Shire Mare who has been given extensive training (driving and riding) as well as many many miles of practical experience. Bella is gorgeous. She has an extremely feminine face and eye. In addition she is extremely flashy - very black with a white stripe and 3 white socks.
Bella is sound and solid. She was a great driving horse - very flashy in harness. Bella has Stellar conformation with excellent movement making her extremely suitable as a riding horse in spite of her size. She has had the same owner since she was a foal and she is kind, loving and sweet with wonderful manners. Bella is easy to work with in an arena or out on the trail. She knows how to move over so you can mount her from every thing from tail gates, rails, fences, picnic tables, panels and logs. Climb on what ever you can and tap her saddle with a dressage whip. Bella will move over to you and wait for as long as you want to get to the saddle and get set up to ride. She has a great WHOA.
She is very level headed but forward. She was mostly trail ridden but she was trained to give a lovely canter (slow and collected). Bella knows her proper leads and is an eyecatcher. Bella has no bad habits; she is great with all fences, ties well and is extremely patient. You can bathe her, clip her and she holds her feet up well. I have to sit on a 5 gallon pail to pick out her hooves and she knows to stand and lift her leg when asked.
Bella has been a great ride and can be round penned or just climb on and ride. She will turn heads everywhere you go . Bella has been trail ridden at many state parks, but needs a larger trailer to haul her places. She will go in most every trailer but needs a bit more than one slant as she is a little longer than the average horse. She knows how to back out of the trailer nicely. If a Buyer is interested, the custom head stalls and harnesses can also be available for sale. Bella also has a custom Parade harness. Bella has been ridden in several Parades and she has behaved magnificently in them all. She is extremely reliable. Bella is not a plug, she displays movement and willingness to go forward and with her size is NOT suited for a very beginner but she has always been very safe to ride. Bella has TONS of mane, tail and feathers - so anyone interested in her should be aware that there will be some hair maintenance involved!
Bella has had a beautiful Black and White Drum filly that is SO wonderful. Bella is and has been the greatest ride with her natural athletic ability allowing her to have a wonderful trot and successful canter leads with collection as if she was a lighter horse. Bella is a jet black dapple beauty and a BIG BAROQUE style Draft Horse. This is everyone's dream WAR HORSE with a gentle temperament. Bella has not ever needed to be shod and has been ridden bare foot exclusively. She has GREAT hoof walls with NICE NICE feet. I just saddle and ride down the road. She is traffic safe and has ridden into town with solid manners. Bella has even been ridden over the very busy Interstate 35 and thru the drive INN. She has a soft mouth and BIG feet.
Due to her dependability, Bella has been used her to pony young stock as she really listens to all of the aids - hands, legs and voice and is big enough that if the youngster is acting up Bella maintains her cool - allowing for an easier training time for the youngster. Bella can walk fast and cover ground. She can lead bravely on a trail ride in the woods or thru scary things in town. This is a mare who has spent quite a bit of time being introduced to many different things. She is safe, sane and sound - an ideal dream horse for someone looking to turn heads and also have an enjoyable time driving or riding. We would love the opportunity to show Bella to you. She is an absolutely stunning animal who will take your breath away!
