Della is a 14.2hh 2008 chestnut Arabian mare who came in from a December 2017 case. She was in foal at intake and gave birth to a chestnut colt on April 29th, 2018. Della had some severe trust issues at intake due to very poor handling in her past. (Thank you to Tara Perkins of Perquestrian Acres for her consistent and caring work on helping Della to start overcoming these issues).
Della was placed with trainer Sarah Lemke in our 2020 Trainer’s Challenge. She spent the spring and summer in training and competed successfully with Sarah at the competition in September, taking home 4th Overall Highpoint and 1st in the Trail/Obstacle class! Della was adopted but was returned to MHARF in 2022 because her adopter could very sadly no longer keep her. Della is a nice, athletic mare with a lot of energy. She is currently back in training with Marirose Berner of MJB Horse Training. She is suitable for a confident intermediate rider and up. Marirose thinks she will be a great trail horse. She is brave and enjoys obstacles and using her mind.
