Well, Dad is written all over this long-legged, very tall filly for whom “joy is movement”. From her mom, SPA Bretania, she takes an even, gentle temperament, but sire Sandro Hit has had a big influence on the physical characteristics and mechanics. Already legendary as a sire of athletic dressage and jumping competitors, Sandro Hit’s best matches are often Brentano II mares – witness Bundeschampions and successful competition horses Poetin, Samba Hits I, II, III and IV, and Samarant. SoBella was SOLD in-utero to Kim and Jason in New Jersey, and will be targetted towards a dressage career.
At her Inspection Bella was one of 4 foals (2 colts, 2 fillies) called back from an august field of 23 entries. Dr Christmann particularly liked her freedom through the shoulder, long legs, strong frame and ground-covering gaits. She is now schooling the advanced movements with Kim in New Jersey.
