We are pleased to welcome Caroline Gaul to our staff.
Caroline has been riding in a variety of horse disciplines for as long she can remember, 25 years to be exact. Her goal is to offer professional, safe instruction for any level of rider wishing to improve or step up a gear with their dressage or cross country. Throughout her riding career, she has had the opportunity to do many things but one that stands out is working as a professional groom for Olympic event rider, Joe Meyer. This experience really comes in handy when the Fox Run Riding team hits the show circuit. An area of special interest for Caroline is horse behavior. Helping riders understand horse behavior creates a safer interaction between rider and horse, both on the ground and in the saddle. She also appreciates and has extensively studied, the benefit of horse therapy for individuals struggling with life issues, stress, addictions, and also for personal growth. Caroline received her level 2 accreditation in EAGALA (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning) in 2013. EAGALA was founded in 1999 and is the leading international nonprofit association for professionals using equine therapy to address mental health and human development needs. Here at Fox Run, Caroline hopes to share her knowledge of horses, horse therapy and horsemanship with everyone wishing to grow as individuals, as riders and as skilled horsemen.

Our Fox Run school horses may now be leased out on a monthly and/or long term basis. We offer both full and half leases for our students to secure some special time with their favorite school horse! This lease fee includes use of the horse, facility, and necessary equipment. The lease program is set up for students to be able to practice what they are learning in their lessons and to have priority use of their leased horse for their lessons and shows! It also allows access to the pony/horse outside of lesson for everyday practice including weekends. For more information about our lease program please talk to Tricia or Cassie. This is a wonderful way for our students to get the horse-owning experience first hand without the full commitment of actually owning a horse!
Fox Run never ceases to impress! This year we had three ponies qualify for the 2012 Pony Finals! Blue James Blue, Blue Grace, and Baby Be Good packed up for a two week journey (Along with their two legged friends/grooms/coaches/pony slaves) to the gorgeous city of Lexington, Kentucky. Gracie excelled in the modeling and flat class, while James caught the eyes of many in the Large Green Hunter over Fences! James finished 34th out of over 70 horses, a huge honor and accomplishment for the Fox Run team. All three of these ponies are for sale, you can view videos and photos on our website under the Horses for Sale tab. Congratulations to Andrew LaFoe, Tricia LaFoe, SuAnne Remley, and Cassie Zimmerman for their many successes with these wonderful ponies!
