Hidden Fox Farm is built on the simple idea that everyone can benefit from the joys that horses bring. We are dedicated to providing a safe, friendly and welcoming environment for everyone, two legged or four, who comes to our farm. We emphasize proper riding as well as good horsemanship. We strive to help each student achieve their own individual goals while fostering a positive attitude and a warm family atmosphere.

Petey is our resident barn dog. He thinks his duties include chasing horses, but his main job is to be a happy guy and greet everyone who comes by. He can frequently be found stealing hoof picks to chew on, laying in the bushes or playing with Foxy.
Foxy is our barn cat, mouse hunter extraordinaire. When he's not hunting for pesky rodents, he can be found laying in the ring, often directly in the path of oncoming horses. Don't worry when Petey chases him, they are actually best buds.
We currently have 7 lesson horses/ponies, plus other privately owned horses, sale horses and those in training. Check back later for updated pictures and bios of our equine friends!
