Meet the lesson horses of Fox Crossing! Each of our horses and ponies has been hand selected for use in our lesson program. Our qualified instructors will match you with a horse that best fits your needs keeping in mind that each horse has its own personality. Many of our lesson horses are also available for lease.


Hi! My name is SHAMUS.  I am a 15.1 hand, 15 year old, flea bitten grey, Connemara, Gelding. Everyone agrees I am a wonderful guy with a sweet personality. I love giving lessons to children and adults of all ages.  I also really enjoy teaching Dressage lessons! Did you know that is my old forte? I have shown thru second level and love to teach riders to bend, sit trot and learn the fundamentals of dressage with my long time partner, Liz Braverman! 
Hello my name is Duncan. I am a very handsome, 18 year old, 17 H Dutch Warmblood Gelding.  I am a REALLY great teacher - I guess that is why they call me a schoolmaster! I am very easygoing and have been told I am more like a big puppydog than a horse! I have a bouncy trot to teach you suspension, a smooth canter and I get my lead changes automatically whether you ask or not. I am an old pro at horse shows, been there..done that, and can't wait to give you the confidence to continue on and teach you all I know! 
My show name is Meant To Be, but my barn name is GODIVA because of my rich chocolate coat. I am a 13 year old, 14 h beautiful liver chestnut pony mare.
