H. Bella Bonita J.H. is an fancy mare with a delightful "in your pocket" temperament. She has a kind and gentle disposition, wants to be around people and has a desire to please. She has excellent conformation with a racial type like the champion Dutch Warmbloods in her pedigree. She is being started under saddle at this time and you could finish her training as you like. We have only used her as a broodmare to date. Bella has had one foal, is a great mother, and had an easy delivery.

Bella’s sire is Bontefire (Samber x Ico Sun x Pericles). He is a stunning homozygous tobiano stallion with impeccable Warmblood breeding. At his inspection it was said that he exhibits quality confirmation and movement. He has a rich predicate dam line. His sire is the one and only Samber.

Samber was the first and only pinto approved by the KWPN. In 1979 he passed his 100 day performance test with an overall of 160.2 points, which gained him an A pass. He successfully competed at ZZ level in dressage and Z level in jumping. His success wasn’t an accident. His sire was Pericles, Ster, Keur, Preferent, Kern, Super-Premium, one of the KWPN’s most influential, English bred, foundation Thoroughbreds. He was one of the few Thoroughbreds to receive Preferent status and sired over 2600 progeny. His offspring made excellent sport horses that excelled at both jumping and in dressage. While Pericles was best known as a dressage sire, he did some racing and jumping late in his career. In all he sired 12 approved KWPN stallions including Samber and is the maternal grandsire of Ulft.

Samber’s dam was Tina D, KWPN Ster, Preferent, Prestatie mare who produced 19 foals, many of which also obtained Ster, Keur and Prestatie status. While Samber didn’t sire any KWPN approved sons, he was popular in Germany and there he sired the approved stallion Sambuco B and a full sister Evelien. Sambuco B passed on Samber’s genes to no less than nine approved stallions in Germany. Samber also sired Sambertino, Art Deco, and Karel. One of Samber’s daughters was the dam of the famous Ed King Hill who had a successful show jumping career prior to tearing a tendon and having to be put down at the age of twelve. He left behind two approved sons and gained Prestatie status through his progeny. One of most famous successful descendants of Samber to date is the International show jumping sire "Utah Van Erpekhom" (Landetto x Calemiro x Samber) who jumps with John Whitaker.

Bontefire’s dam is Ramoro, KWPN Preferent, who was sired by the famous Ico Sun. He was one of the few colored stallions to compete in show jumping (he was known as Daz when owned and shown by John Whitaker) in the UK and at the national level in Holland, where he currently stands at stud. Ico Sun’s sire is Ico, also an international show jumper. Ico is known as “the jumping sire” with a jumping index of 108, which is well above average. He bred Nekoma who jumped in the Achen Grand Prix at just six years old.

Bella’s dam is Teatske fan Panhuys, a Friesian Ster Mare. Her dam sire is Hille fan ‘e Les, a Ster stallion by Folker 353 Sport. Bella's pedigree also includes Friesian stallions such as Feitse 293, Djurre 284, and Nykle 309 and Hearke 254, as well as many Ster, Model, and Preferent mares.
