Belle is a 16hh, 23 year old mare who has been ridden in the school and out in company. She seems kind and trusting and is very calm. She would make a nice gentle hack for somebody looking for an older horse. She is also very good with the farrier.

However any potential adopter must have experience.

Please contact or phone 06 69 04 45 97
