What we offer
With Cheval Noir you can rest assured that your horses are receiving the best care available. We treat each horse as our own. Every horse has a specialized feeding and training schedule to best suit their needs.
We believe horses need to be horses. We provide ample turnout time daily, weather permitting. We offer small group turnout in grass pastures. Fly sheets, turnout boots/bellboots, blankets, and fly spray are applied before turnout as needed.
Our stalls are bedded deep with fresh shavings daily, as well as cleaned 1-2x a day. They are fed premium timothy hay multiple times a day, as well as grain 2-3x a day. Waters are checked periodically. All stalls have windows for your horse to enjoy.
We treat every horse as our own. We pride ourselves on offering high quality care. We create a specialized feed and turnout plan for every horse. All horses are checked daily when they come in from the pasture by our staff, that lives on-site.

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Cheval Noir. I love the care Hannah has for all of the horses she works with. I wouldn’t send my horses anywhere else!
When it comes to Hannah’s training methods and capabilities, the difference I feel in her on the ground and under saddle speaks for itself. This is a wonderful and welcoming environment for adult amateurs and I highly recommend it!
My 13-year-old OTTB is a HOT MESS. We have struggled for years with lameness issues and various mishaps and have not been able to string together a decent period of consistent work. Hannah is so attentive and figured out a significant diet issue I had no idea we were dealing with. She adjusted my boy’s feed and he looks amazing! And he holds his shoes now and is sound! Hannah also works with him regularly and I always know – without asking – when she’s been riding him because he is much more responsive and balanced.
