Combines learning riding skills along with horsemanship. Teaches responsibility, discipline, coordination and good sportsmanship in a friendly safe atmosphere. Provides the opportunity to meet new friends of all ages who also share a love of horses. Can be as relaxing or competitive as you like with an emphasis on safety. We encourage students to learn how to work with horses while on the ground and on their backs. Students learn to correctly halter, groom, tack up, ride and care for horses during the lesson program with the goal being to someday independently manage or own a horse. We offer private, semi private and group lessons (maximum class size 5) for the beginner, intermediate and advance rider in both western and English disciplines. Students under 6 must be evaluated before acceptance in program. Instructors are CHA certified and have 40 years combined experience showing, training, teaching and riding horses.
1. Approved helmets must be worn by all students when they are mounted. Fox Run will provide helmets and boots for those who do not have their own, but Fox Run cannot guarantee proper fit of all loaned helmets and boots. We strongly suggest that regular students of any age buy their own helmet and proper riding attire, including boots with a heel.
2. Not all lessons will be taught on horseback. Classroom and “in the barn instruction are part of our riding school program.
3. Students should arrive 15 minutes prior to lessons to prepare for lesson and allow an additional 10 minutes following lesson to properly groom and cool out their horse, clean all equipment and return to proper place.
