Purebred Cleveland Bay Mares
Bella Vista currently has two breeding pure Cleveland Bay mares - Carolina Rainbow and Venus BV. We hope to acquire or retain a filly in the next two years to bring our pure breeding mare herd to three. All pure breeding mares are registered with CBHS and are treated as a part of our family.
Venus BV is pure Cleveland Bay mare foaled in 2008. She stands approximately 16.1-2hh. She is by Tregoyd Journeyman (b. 1999) and out of Carolina Rainbow (our other pure Cleveland Bay mare). Venus has given Bella Vista two wonder colt foals - Bellavista Dandy Lion by Idlehour Lion Share and Bellavista Exeter by Pembridge Joshua. Venus was not bred for a 2017 foal, but will be bred for a pure foal in 2018.
Carolina Rainbow is a pure premium Cleveland Bay mare born in 1997 and imported to the United States in 2003. Rainbow is by Mr. Tobias (b. 1985) and out of Carolina Rain. Rainbow is currently in-foal with her sixth pure (this foal by stallion Arena Maestro) due in May 2017. Rainbow had three foals in the UK before coming to the United States and has two on the ground here - Venus BV (another pure breeding mare owned by Bella Vista) and Bellavista Chancellor, a 2014 pure gelding currently for sale. Rainbow earned sainthood in 2014 as she raised both Chancellor and an orphaned warmblood filly simultaneously.
