Bella, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bella
Age: Ten years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Quarter Horse, Paint horse
Home: Kilmore, Ireland
   Bella (registered name Hustler's Broken Heart) is my horse, she is a Quarter Horse/Paint mix, her coloring is called chestnut overo, and her height is 15.2hh. Bella is special to me because I have been riding her since the start of the year, but mum has owned her since she was two. Bella has been trail riding since she was broken in, she loves galloping up the steep hills and across rivers.

    I started to ride Bella when I was getting to big for my 13.2 hh pony and I asked mum "Can I ride Bella?" because mum was moving on to another horse. When I started to ride her, she was all over the place and was green at dressage. I started to get lessons on dressage and she has improved so much, (we couldn't have done it without the lessons).

    Bella loves to jump. She can jump over one metre and is great at cross country (galloping around the open paddock and over jumps). I have competed on Bella around four times but haven't placed yet because her dressage let us down, she is graded grade four in all events and grade E in showjumping.

   I love my horse lots!!! :)
