Enjoy these pictures of some of the boys playing a bit of polo!
Missouri brought us a nice big Winter snow the day after Christmas here at Fox Run! But, our fun never ends thank to our wonderful heated, indoor arena. Here are a few photos of our students enjoying the indoor, as well as our lesson horses having a bit of fun in the snow!
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!
Things never slow down at Fox Run Stables! Currently, Fox Run is the home of the Fox Run Equestrian Team as well as the Southeast Missouri State Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) Equestrian Team, but we are now adding to our show team family. Fox Run welcomes the first Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) team to our barn and the area. This is open to children of the ages from 11-19, and owning a horse is not necessary! Very similar to the IHSA, team members learn to ride on many horses and compete across the region on horses drawn at random. The IEA is currently celebrating its 10th Anniversary and has many active riders and opportunities to show.
SuAnne Remley, master instructor and coach to the Southeast Missouri State University's Equestrian Team, will also be the coach for Fox Run's IEA team. Members will have the opportunity to practice once a week, either on Tuesday at 6:30pm or Thursday at 5:30pm. Lesson fees will be 30$ per lesson. An additional 100$ will be needed to cover IEA dues as well as insurance.
The first meeting for any interested members will be Septmeber the 6th at 5:45pm. We look forward to expanding our Fox Run family and our show records!
