Belle Du Jour
Bella is half sister to Hester, bred again by Lucy Nelson @https://forestlodgestud.co.uk
I’m enjoying my first season with her and I’m very impressed with her ability. As with a lot of mares Bella is opinionated, and she has a feisty temperament to back those opinions up. You could interpret her attitude at times as stubborn, but I try to look at this from a different angle. Stubborness is ‘determination focussed in a negative way’. Determination is key to success, so the challenge is to get her to focus in a positive way and you’re on to a winner. This has been evident in her progress during the short time she’s been at Team Bragg and I can see a huge shift in her perspective. She is developing a good work ethos, this has been rewarded with her most recent win, which Im sure will be the first of many.
Talented, Feisty, Determined; who wouldn’t want to be leaving the start box at Badminton on anything less??
