Our lessons are hand-tailored to each rider’s needs, and we strive to help everyone achieve their personal equine goals.
We provide one hour time slots for children over the age of six through adults. Lessons range from beginner to advanced, and while our focus is towards competition, we are also happy to teach those who are not looking to compete. Contact us today, and come be a part of Team White Fox!
Our goal is to create harmony between the horse and rider by teaching students the skills needed to correctly communicate with their horse. We focus, not only on the how of riding, but the why. Seeking to understand how our horses are interpreting our aids. At White Fox our riding is based on a balanced seat. This means that the rider is in balance with the horse, following the horse’s motion, and using their seat as the main form of communication.
Learning overall horsemanship is a central part of our philosophy. These animals give us so much, and we strongly feel that we owe them good stewardship including proper care and understanding of the horses' needs.
