Bellamy was Reserve Champion at his Hanoverian inspection out of 12 foals. Big gentle boy with LOADS of power in the hindquarter; collected work will be easy for this guy! The judge at his inspection noted his correctness of leg conformation, powerful gaits and suitability for dressage, and awarded him reserve champion out of 12 foals. Upper level dressage prospect with an earnest and sweet temperament (shameless flirt). Also suited as a hunter prospect with the gaits to shine in the hacks, as well as willingness and carefulness over jumps and poles. Sticked at 16.1hh in November 2019, and expected to mature 16.2+hh.
***As of January 30th will have completed two month of training with professional dressage trainer.***
