Our Story

Sara Sasso Toolin, Olympic hopeful and Italian Grand Prix dresage rider, and Kelly Hammett, corporate marketing executive and rider, crossed paths in Summer 2021. Their vision to build a world class equestrian center for the Olympic disciplines of dressage, jumping, and eventing aligned, and they immediately began to work together towards that one goal. 

After over a year of research and planning, ForteBella Equestrian LLC was born. In Italian, "Forte" meaning "Strength" and "Bella" meaning "Beauty" represents the pivotal  qualities needed to build a successful and harmonious partnership between horse and  rider. The center is set to bring uniquely exclusive equestrian experiences to the DFW metroplex.
