Learn to ride

It all starts with proper horsemanship

The Fox Hollow riding school provides a comprehensive foundation in the hunter-jumper (English) discipline. Of utmost importance in our program is the fine art of proper horsemanship, which we believe goes hand in hand with progress as a rider. This is why all beginners start with horsemanship (unmounted) lessons as a prerequisite to saddle time, which first and foremost ensures optimal safety, as well as respect for our equine partner. 

Some aspects of horsemanship include:​

  • Equine behavior, body language, and safety

  • Equine anatomy, health and basic medical care 

  • Basic nutrition and daily care needs

  • Proper use of tack and equipment

  • Thorough grooming and a clean presentation of horse and rider in respect to the animal and tradition of the sport

From this wealth of knowledge and ability, children learn valuable life lessons including selflessness, discipline, responsibility, and the value of hard work. Students thus gain liberating independence, eventually being able to groom, tack up, and care for their horse independently as if it were their own. Upon graduating basic horsemanship classes, students see their hard work pay off with their ultimate goal: time to ride! As they grow in their riding accomplishments, students continue to expand their knowledge in horsemanship topics, becoming the next generation of well-rounded equestrians. 

 

Membership Packages

The riding academy at Fox Hollow has three levels, beginning with solid horsemanship basics. Upon graduation to the academy level, students are able to care for their horses independently, at which point membership is billed on a quarterly basis.
