Great Barn, Great Lesson Horses, Great Trainers
My daughter has been riding at Foxcroft for 9 years and we have been very pleased. Foxcroft has a wonderful variety of lesson horses and the facility is well maintained. The trainers are encouraging and push the riders to do their best.
Wonderful and horse-focused
I've been riding with Doe Rae for many years, and not only has her guidance helped develop me as a rider but it has also empowered me in other areas of my life. She teaches young girls that they can handle more than they think, and knowing that you can be the master of a 1500 lb animal makes other challenges in life seem doable and even small in a lot of cases. Not only is there a strong focus on developing students into well-rounded riders as well as strong individuals outside of the ring, but also a stronger focus on caring for and treating the horses with respect. Horses are never overworked or mistreated, and their health and safety is always put first.
What a difference!
After 9 months at the barn, my daughters have improved so much and so have our horses! My oldest competes at the National level (Harrisburg, Devon & equitation finals) but has received so many compliments on her riding since we made the switch to Carolyn. She was even asked by an NCAA coach ÂWho got a hold of you and fine tuned your position? It is perfect.Â It wasnÂt until we were making a DVD of her riding for colleges that it really hit me. Videos that I made prior to CarolynÂs training were nowhere near as good to demonstrate her skill and ability. The improvements of her horse and riding are remarkable! I am so excited about the future with Fortitude Farm and canÂt...
Amazing Facility - Excellent Care!
We recently went to Shannondale for a clinic. This facility is AMAZING. The owners really do know what they are doing with regard to the care of the horses as well. Absolutely fantastic.. truly a great experience. Our horse was having colic-like symptoms before we arrived and the owner did a night-check on him to make sure that the horse was doing fine and then called to give me an update. Remember I was only there for a clinic and only paying a nightly fee, I am not one of their regular boarders. Fantastic facility, awesome owners!
Great barn, fantastic people
