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.
