2000 dark bay with star Welsh/Thoroughbred. 

This very classical-looking mare is sweet, willing, and has gorgeous movement. She does walk/trot in the ring and is quiet on trails.
In 2006 she produced a lovely, tall bay colt with four white socks and a star who was owned and trained by Laura Collins.

Currently she has a 2015 bay colt at side and will start back in training when he is weaned.
Belle is a very patient pony with a willing attitude.
