Noir is a wonderful type by way of her breeding: sired by Negro and the damside is Rubinstein/Donnerhall/Master. I am a great believer in bloodlines and it is very evident in this mare's ability. Noir was worked from the ground before she was old enough to break and when it came time to break her it was just a matter of climbing on and teaching her from the saddle. Her conformation was also an important reason for me because it is so close to her sire Negro and her half brother Valegro.
Noir is a lady's type horse in refinement and I believe she will finish growing at 16.2 hands like her full sister, her mother and Velegro himself!
Noir is an overachiever and loves work with detail and precision. I believe she will excel at the highest level because her work comes so easy to her. I never had a young horse learn tempi changes so easily and so cleanly. In hand piaffe and passage was there the first time I asked. She is trained in open fields as well as the riding arena and her movement gets bigger and more expressive as she allows the gymnastic work to come through.
She is a good sport about most things such as trailering, clipping and new places, etc. Please call me for more information about this interesting horse.
