We call Marijke “Mikey.” She is 19 years old and over 17 hands. Her white eyebrows are so unusual that when she is at a show people stop to pet and photograph her. She is one of the sweetest horses we own.
Marijke is pictured here with David Bruce at the 2015 Regional Friesian Horse Show at the Budweiser Center in Loveland, Colorado, where she won two Championships in Huntseat. Also this year, she won at the Denver Stock Show in Open Huntseat, making this one of her best show years ever. We are very proud of this special horse who loves to be loved and loves to “strut her stuff” in the arena.
Marijke has been trained for the past three years by Kelly Bell Performance Horses. Kelly is a well known huntseat competitor and trainer. Angelia Lease tacks Marijke and cares for her daily needs. Mikey loves Angela. They seem to have a special bond between them. Marijke has been a real blessing to all of us, and we know that we have made her experience much more enjoyable.
