In loving memory of this most incredible mare. Our time together was way too short.
Belissima was started her under saddle by Dani in June 2017 and began competing in February 2018. She finished her first year of competition at Training level and qualified for the USEA YEH Five-Year-Old Championships. Belissima is very talented and fancy. Dani can’t wait to see what this talented mare has in store for the future!
Dani and Belissima started 2019 off with a 6th place finish at Ocala Winter I H.T. in the Training Horse division. Next, the pair went on to finish 4th in the Training Horse division on a 33.6 at Rocking Winter II H.T. In March, Dani and Belissima finished 12th in her Preliminary level debut at Rocking Horse III H.T.
