A Tradition of Equestrian Excellence

Horsemanship and the responsibility that goes with it have been an integral part of the Foxcroft experience since the school opened in 1914.

From our School's founder (and first riding teacher) Charlotte Haxall Noland to current Director of Riding Kate Worsham, Foxcroft's riding instructors promote the philosophy that the sport helps develop character and the ability to make good decisions.


I would've never imagined that I'd grow my riding abilities to the extent that I have at Foxcroft and with the help of my amazing trainers.

— Valeska F., Class of 2026
