In Loving Memory


We regret to announce the passing of an irreplaceable member of the Eclipse Sporthorses team, Adriane Bell. Adriane was a a dear friend to many at Eclipse Sporthorses and the impression she left behind will not soon be forgotten. Her smiling face and endless excitement for sporthorse breeding did not go unnoticed. Adriane played a key role in the building of Eclipse Sporthorses from the ground up. Her incredible eye for a horse was crucial in the selection of our mares and created many of the lovely crosses for foals we have on the ground now.
