Board/Training/Facility

As of September 1st, 2012, River House Hanoverians will be operating out of its Williston, FL facility full-time. Williston is a small town located right next to Ocala – “The Horse Capital of the World”. This training facility is just 10 minutes from HITS Ocala and a short drive to the dressage/jumping/eventing competitions at the Florida Horse Park and Canterbury Showplace. The international show scene in Wellington is a simple, straight shot down I-75.

USDF certified instructor & Grand Prix trainer, Jeanie Hahn, and Grand Prix trainer & High Performance competitor, Nora Batchelder, are resident trainers, who can provide personalized training programs to advance the education of both horse and rider. Both Jeanie and Nora have competed at the Grand Prix level on multiple horses that they have trained themselves. Students are welcome to inquire about our internship program as well. Verne Batchelder, a freelance clinician, is also available at times for on farm lessons.

River House offers board, training & instruction for all levels.
