Belle is a gorgeous rising 5yo, 12.3hh registered welsh mare by Imperial War Dance. I purchased Belle around July 2016 in the hopes of training and competing her for sale this year. However, Belle proved to be way more than I could have ever hoped for, and I have had a lot of trouble trying not to get attached.
Belle has a kind and open heart. She loves hugs and kisses, but is also happy to keep to herself and is not pushy or in your face.
Along with her exceptional personality, Belle is oozing talent and looks that draw attention wherever she goes.
Belle is bold and brave, takes everything in her stride and learns at the drop of a hat.
She has proven an exceptional jumping and cross country pony, as she is honest to all jumps and will give anything a go. Because of her age and myself being slightly undermounted on her, I have not pushed her to jump big heights, but she has never said no to a jump. She has never been spooky at fills or different cross country jumps, as she treats every jump with the same confident and brave attitude.
Belle has stunning and expressive paces, and holds a beautiful and balanced frame in the Dressage arena. She has never gotten nervous or jumpy in tests, and her scores were consistent in the 40's (Old scoring). Belle has neat and delicate features, with a gorgeous cute face and tea-cup nose.
Because of this, Belle would also make a top show pony, but I also think her fierce talent and eager attitude towards Jumping and Eventing is not something to be wasted.
Belle has also recently been my Games pony, and we have competed in various games events over the past few months, and she has absolutely loved it. However, Belle has a slight fear of other horses coming near her at a fast pace. She is very careful and aware, and has barely gotten even as much as a bit of hair off in the paddock. Belle lives in a heard environment with a few other ponies, including a fellow Games pony in her team. When she knows the pony who is galloping into her personal space, she doesn't mind.
Belle also achieved the highest score in the 13-16yrs pony club mount at the PCAWA state novelties championships, which contributed to our team taking out the trophy. She couldn't have cared less to carry a big Aussie flag around at a canter.
In the short year she had been competing, Belle has placed in every competition she has been entered in, and her results include:
- Dryandra PC ODE 2016 2nd 45cm
- Harvey CNC 1 2017 6th 65cm
- Moora CNC 2017 5th 65cm

2017 Perth Royal Show:
- PCWA Mounted Games Pairs Championships - 2nd place
Belle has always behaved well beyond her years, and didn't disappoint at the Royal Show, where she took everything in her stride and acted wonderfully. She was happy to go and say hello to the crowd, and wasn't at all fazed by the cows, donkeys or other horses in the Grand Parade.
Despite Belle being able to conquer up a bit of speed for the games, as soon as you sit back, she will stop. This pony is never ever strong or uncontrollable. She is always listening and waiting for her next aid.
Belle has a very soft snaffle mouth, and she would never bolt, rear or buck. Good to trim (has brilliant tough hooves, competes barefoot and never been lame), wash, clip (stood happily for hours un-sedated when having designs clipped on her rump), absolutely loves water jumps (never hesitates to go in) and been swimming at the beach, she is a dream to float, worm, catch and hard tie.
Although Belle would suit anyone from lead line to a small/petite adult, I would like Belle to go to an ambitious young rider that can learn and teach along with Belle. Even though safe and quiet, Belle is still a young green pony, and would benefit from a supervising hand.
In the short time I have had her, Belle has earned a very special place in my heart. This pony deserves to be loved, as she will give it all in return.
