Shire mare, born 2005. We first met Belle at our local agricultural fair in 2014, where she formed part of a 4-up hitch, along with Maggie, Annie and Button. When the owner of these beautiful mares decided to retire in 2021, we were happily humbled to be entrusted with their long-term care!
Belle and her well-matched teammate, Button, love to work and work hard they will! If you think raw-horse-power, these two ladies have it! At Tally-Ho Belle will expand her knowledge into the areas of natural horsemanship, and learn a new speed – Slow! Belle is a confident mare and we know she is going to love having new, adoring fans as she transitions to becoming a single carriage horse.
The Shire horse is listed on the Rare Breeds Survival Trust list as a species vulnerable to extinction. In 2016 there were fewer than 1,500 registered worldwide.
