The queen of the ranch and Megastar's favorite girl
Catherine Flying Express x Trefaes Bellflower
Our beautiful Belladonna. She came to us in August of 1994 as a yearling after taking 7th place in the Royal Welsh Show in Wales. She promptly won American National Supreme Champion in Tulsa at the end of September of that same year. Belle went on to win many, many awards and championships in-hand and in dressage, english pleasure, and was a Ridden Welsh Classic champion. Her greatest legacy, however, is found in her many offspring; Mynydd Hir Starbucks, Mynydd Hir Starburst, Mynydd Hir Stargait, MHS Outlaw Star, Solstice Belle Star, MHS Star Sapphire, Solstice Lady of the Knight, and via embryo transfer in her last years, MHS Pegasus, MHS Bella Dawn, and MHS Bellissimo. All of these sons and daughters (except the three young ones who are two and one) have shone in the show and sport world, winning many championships themselves. We sadly had to say goodbye to Belladonna in the summer of 2017 at the age of 24 as a result of age-related digestion problems. She is very sadly missed every day, but we are thrilled to have her three young ones to bring on and breed for the future.
