StPrSt Bella Fortuna (
Rheinland / Chestnut / 1,68 m)
Fortuna's mother is the
state premium mare Cinderella, her father the
Bundeschampion Belissimo M.
Bella Fortuna has with Bella Mia a one year older
full-sister, who's development we have followed with great
pleasure. Both have inherited Belissimo's amiable character, the typical
Bolero type and an absolutely
beautiful face. We hope that Fortuna's easy to remember birth date will bring her a lot of luck and have named
her Bella Fortuna to be on the safe side.
Meanwhile three years old, Fortuna has been registered as a brood mare and received an invitation
Elite Mare Show of the Rhenish Breeding Association.
There she presented herself with her typical charisma
not at all impacted by the unfamiliar environment trotted in front of the commission with self confidence
and a lot of power, always keeping the rythm. Her presentation was awarded with
the title state premium
mare. She successfully attended the mares performance test with the very high
total score of 8.
Bella Fortuna has not only delivered her first foal but has meanwhile also won
and been highly placed in dressage competitions up to dutch M1 class (elementary level).
She is trained up to medium level and
will soon also be shown on that level. She is a real tribute to her father, known
for regularly passing on his remarkable rideability. We enjoy very much seeing her develop to her full potential.
