Bella is the sweetest, sassiest pony that I’ve ever met. She is my 5-year-old daughter’s best friend and has been since their first meeting a year and a half ago.
My quiet, timid daughter has gained confidence and a voice as she’s learned to ride and take care of Bella. Bella has endless patience as my daughter repetitively picks up her hooves to show her new skills and stays calm and steady so my daughter can ride independently.

Bella is the perfect hug when tears and frustrations come (and there are lots of big emotions at 4 and 5 years old). When we’re not at the farm, my daughter counts down the days until the next time we go. I know Bella is not only this pony for my daughter but several other kids who also love and ride her. She really is the sweetest, sassiest, best pony there is!
