Naike Bell starting her riding career at the young age of 6! She started riding English first until the age of 16. When she was 18 she decided to make the switch to western. She saw a picture in a magazine of a reiner and decided that was what she wanted to pursue.
From there, she was determined and moved from her home town to start working for Rejean Levesque. She started as groom in 2004, with hard work she soon became an assistant trainer. She then received her Quebec certification as a trainer with the Quebec Horse Association. She entered the show pen for the first time in 2006. She was able to purchase her first horse in 2007 and started then in the Rookie Professional and Limited Open. Again with determination, she reached her goal of being Top 10 in the Limited Open in 2012.
After 8 years of being with Rejean, she decided to move to the United States. She worked with Mike McEntire. During her time with Mike, she learned a lot about starting upcoming 2 year olds. She made a quick decision to move to New Jersey, where she would get more experience in the show pen.
Sadly in 2017, she lost her father. She moved back to Canada to be with her family for a year. She found she missed training horses, and moved back to the United States and started working with Brian Bell Performance Horses. She is still determined and hardworking, and constantly perfecting her skills as an assistant horse trainer!
