Bengala is an intelligent and curious mare, who loves to play and spend time with her human family. She is currently expecting her second foal by the beautiful PRE stallion PDC Ernesto.

In addition to her many achievements in the Show, Working Equitation and Dressage arenas, Bengala also has a gentle, nurturing side to her personality and takes particular care of young riders entrusted to her, as well as people with disabilities.

A prime example of this is how she has taken care of our Cristogracia rider, Danyele who has Autism.

With the assistance of Bengala, Chris and Grant, and the rest of the dedicated Cristogracia team, Danyele has gained newfound confidence, riding and horsemanship skills, and has taken her first steps out into the mainstream equestrian world in both Working Equitation and Dressage with promising results to date.
