My relationship with Claire goes back many years, long before the formation of Braecrest Stable and, in fact, before she owned her very first horse.  In those years that passed, I have watched her develop into a skillful, confident horse and business woman with a particular, innate talent of excelling with young and challenging horses.  I have sent her my broodmare to foal out twice, used her for foal/yearling groundwork, trailer schooling/shipping and, most recently brought a 2 year old filly to her to back and lightly start under saddle as well as handle at the CSHA line shows.  I am thrilled with the results and how happy my horses were in her top notch care at her lovely farm.  Claire treats each horse as an individual and has a fabulous grasp of equine behaviour, allowing each horse to shine based on their own merits and ability.  The horses that come out of her program are confident and well prepared to head out into the world and are ready for the next step in their career.  On top of it all, Claire is a caring, organized individual with a high attention to detail.

I would highly recommend Claire Hunter and Braecrest Stables to anyone looking to have a young horse started, horse sold, mare/foal care or even for breeding as she stands a lovely stallion. The proof is truly in the results and we all owe that to our horses.”  Andrea Galan-Nicholls, Beeton, Ontario
