Horse Acting/Modelling Experience

Bella has had a lot of experience being in outdoor shows and in a big top, horse displays and horse performances. She has also worked inside onstage and in halls in front of large crowds.

This means that she would be comfortable working in a busy environment with lots of new people and lots of loud sounds. Also, Bella is used to travelling to each show, therefore, would be happy to work in different locations.

Being a native breed, she is suitable for projects where the British countryside is being represented.
