Hi! My name is Kendall Benner, and I wanted to give you all an update on a horse you bred named Piedmont Nell. I have owned her for about two and a half years now and we bought her from Julia Hecking. Nell has been doing wonderful here and she is by far one of the most talented and smart horses I have ever ridden. I have been competing her in novice level eventing with schooling lots of training level, and I hope to move her up to training permanently this coming year. I recently got my USPC C3 certification on her and she was wonderful through the whole rating. I had been looking through her bio that you all have on her page and thought you might want to see updates on how she is doing! I am going to attach some pictures from this year so you can see!

a.k.a. Belle's Timeless Tale
"She has been an awesome horse for Cassy the last 2 summers...
Currently showing 2'6 with plenty of scope and heart to show 3'+. Brave to jumps, currently showing hunter/jumper but would be great in eventing also, as she has had cross training in dressage. She does have a motor, so she will need a solid intermediate rider. Many show miles the last 2 summers!
Qualified for OHJA Medal 2012 Finals. Shows summers at Delaware Showtime series, won champion of Green Hunter division and Reserve Champion in the Equitation Division at the 2013 All American Youth Show.
Loads/trailers well, good for the farrier, no bad habits and no maintenance.

Hi Vanessa, We have had
for about a month or more now, and just wanted to tell you how much we LOVE her!!! She is a super little mare, and a perfect match for my daughter! Here is a video of them schooling before a show last weekend and also some pictures.
Thank you so much for responding to me! I did come across your website while researching Nell. My daughter is 17 and does hunter/jumper We just got her on Saturday, so I don't know a lot about her yet My daughter has named her Tink (Tinkerbelle's Charm), in keeping with our other Disney themed horse names. This is my first Connemara but so far she seems great under saddle. My daughter has ridden her on the flat 2 times now, but has not had the opportunity to try her out over fences.
I will definitely keep in touch with you and update you on what Nell is doing! Here is a video clip of my daughter's first ride on her-we were in KY over the weekend. I believe this is Tink's 3rd ride or so since she has been off the last 2 yrs.
Thank you again so much for responding to me! Tracy Hamilton (June 2012)
