Coming soon, more information about that staff that make Fox View Farm what it is today!

  

Head Trainer and Owner, Farra Phillips Hillyard    (570)412-0590    

Farra Phillips-Hillyard, owner and lead trainer of Fox View Farm, has trained with Debbie Stephens, Ronnie Mutch & John Roper. Farra has qualified many horses to the Pennsylvania National Horse Show and the Washington International Horse Show in the Junior Hunter Division and Regular Working Hunter. In addition to showing and qualifying horses for national horse shows, Farra aims to build confidence and knowledge in training riders, horses, and ponies of all abilities. Fox View Farm specializes in a comprehensive approach to riding for the serious horse show competitor as well as those just getting started.

Farra adds to her list of accomplishments with every new year, and never stops progressing. The 2010 show season also brought big wins for Mapleside Dolcetto "Domi", owned and trained by Farra and Christina Lin. "Domi" went to Pony Finals and brought home a 2nd out of 80 in the hunter pony over fences, a 4th out of 200 in the Pony Medal, special thanks to Mindy Darst of Lochmoor Stables. WEF also awarded Domi a Champion in the Large Green Hunter Pony Circuit  and overall Green Pony Circuit, thanks to Emil Spadone of RedField Farm. A Special thanks also goes out to Patricia Griffith of Heritage Farm for all the guidance and help along the way. 

This past 2014 Summer Farra coached long time student Miranda Pardoe and her horse Who Knew, also started and trained by Farra, to a Children's Hunter Horse Champion and overall Children's Hunter Horse Champion at Lake Placid. Farra and Who Knew also took Champion at Hits Saugerties in the High Perofrmance Hunter. 

Each year also brings a new crop of young horses trained and shown by Farra Phillips-Hillyard. However endeavors for Farra don't stop there: she also coaches the Bucknell Equestrian Team to multiple wins for each new intercollegiate riding season, and has recently added an IEA team to Zone 3 riding out of Fox View Farm. 

Each year Farra adds new and exciting experiences into the Barn schedule, traveling to Lake Placid and Hits Saugerties along with Upperville and other top rated horse shows around the country. 

Farra continues to produce champion horses and riders and has a real nack for creating wonderful horse and rider combinations.
