Fox Creek Farm
Shelby Purchase grew up riding and showing green ponies. At the age of eleven, she started a 4 yr old Welsh Pony. It was then that she realized her passion for working with youngsters. She had several project ponies as a junior rider which she started and competed. Shelby now trains her homebred ponies. Her patient and consistent training methods have proven to be highly effective.
Shelby will accept a limited number of training ponies, please call for rates and details.
have had the great pleasure of knowing Shelby Purchase since she started riding
ponies as a little girl, when I judged her in one of her first horse shows!
Throughout her junior years in the horse show world, she excelled in the pony
and equitation divisions. Unlike her fellow competitors, Shelby always rode
ponies and horses which she trained herself. She often broke and developed
ponies and then went on to win with them throughout Vermont. Shelby's patience,
knowledge and expertise are to be commended. Over the years I have sent several
Galloping Hill ponies to her for breaking and training and have been most
impressed with the outstanding results."
