Belle Cheval Training News and Events

What's Up?


Oh What a Year it's Been!! Congratulations to all of our clients on a very successful 2017 show season. We are so proud of all of you and your accomplishments. Not only did we have a fabulous show season, we had an amazing 2017 Morgan Grand Nationals and World Championship! Our trio of horses that accompanied to OKC were ready to show their skills and they sure did! Grace Rodemann and Dabe Grand Sweet Rose competed in both the Hunt jr exhibitor classes and the western and placed in the top tens in each! Ethan Bessel and Logan Peterson teamed up to show the classy Seasons Simply Supreme in the Classic Pleasure divisions and also brought home the top tens! And Karen Bessel and Brody Bessel Paired up to show BCT Gentlemans Foxy Lady winning her a Grand National Champion title in Western Dressage Basic Level as well as Reserve National Champion Western Pleasure W/T and many top tens in both National and World classes. 


The end of 2017 meant some big changes for Belle Cheval Training. We decided to move our training to a HEATED facility just 15 minutes away. We've moved in to Pine Creek Stables (formerly Cornerstone Stables) in New Prague, a well known and successful Saddlebred training facility. Our Morgans were welcomed in and have settled nicely. They are learning what being spoiled truly is and they are accepting it just fine!! Moving offers us more room for our constantly growing Belle Cheval Family as well as the ability to keep training consistently over the winter months. Our horses are ready to begin the 2018 show season!! 


If you haven't already began your horses training for the 2018 show season, contact us to get your horse in!! The sooner the better to give us the time needed to make you and your horses outstanding partners in the show ring.
