Introducing Belle de Reve!

We’d like to introduce the newest addition to Hickory House and Stephen Bradley Eventing: Belle de Reve!

Belle is a 11-year-old Selle Francais mare recently imported from England. She was previously owned by an adult amateur that took her to two Advanced horse trials, before selling her to Mimi Abel Smith for Stephen to ride.
Stephen and Belle will be spending this summer and fall getting to know each other, but everyone is very excited to have her in the barn! Stay tuned for updates as the season progresses. And if you’re at the farm, be sure to stop by and give her a pat (although she would really prefer a carrot!).
