Private lessons build upon a foundation of English-style riding, grooming, and etiquette basics, as well as classic techniques before branching off into specifics according to age and ability level. Students should arrive clad in long pants and hard-toed shoes, but helmets and other equipment will be provided. In bad weather, lessons are held indoors.
Fox Pointe Farm, L.L.C.
Colleen Seely, a horse trainer and judge for local equestrian shows, channels her love for the gentle creatures into Fox Pointe Farm, L.L.C., which she opened in 2005. The 27-acre expanse houses two arenas—one lighted with professional footing and the other sandier than a hermit crab's beach house—as well as two barns' worth of stables, grassy pastures, trails, and a swimming pool. Within the tranquil setting, Colleen and her staff train and board steeds for showing at local venues or the farm's own school. Focus shifts from horses to riders during lessons for all ages and abilities, in addition to summer camps for avid athletes. Some overnight camps span an entire week, during which 10 girls bunk in the air-conditioned Fox Den cabin after a day of riding.
