After an experience at this stable I was shocked by the lack of knowledge the "instructor" seemed to have. Although the website for the barn gives all kinds of qualifications...I have learned that Mrs. Lafoe has just recently become a rider and does not have the knowledge or sense to be instructing others on how to ride. The amazing facility was nice but it did not make up for the clear lack of experience Mrs. Lafoe showed. I would not recommend this barn to anyone who was serious about learning to ride in the english discipline.
thank you

Just giving my opinion. I grew up around horses and have a full background in the hunter jumper discipline. CHA is a class anyone can take...and never in all my years and regions of showing have any serious trainers taken certifications seriously. Just because the website states she has been showing and training doesn't make it so. I'm not on here to attack anyone, I just want to inform other potential clients that I did not believe her qualifications. I asked around and received numerous responses from both cape and the st. louis trainers...

I just saw this post and felt compelled to reply!I was so surprised to see such a negative comment from a casual visitor to the Stable on a Sunday Afternoon last summer! I was not contacted by them or made aware of her unhappiness and feel disappointed I was unable to meet there needs nor were the other barns I referred her too.
This potential student and family had special needs beyond my facilities capabilities to provide! I do hope there is a barn out there for her special requirements with the appropriate setup and instruction.
Here at Fox Run we strive to meet the needs of our clients and are proud of our history, safety record (which CHA certification is all about), and our horse show championships on the St Louis circuit both A shows and B shows.

Mrs. LaFoe, there's no need to explain yourself. It's apparent someone is talking trash, however, those who know you do not believe the individual.

I must defend Ms Lafoe bc my daughter has flourished at Fox Run. It has been an amazing experience for her and I can't say enough good about how the program is run. My daughter has mild autism and Ms Lafoe was happy to have her in the program. It has been a very positive experience for my daughter.

You're displaying your emotional and IQ levels for all to see. Each of your posts show the same level of intelligence. Low, very low.

Trisha LaFoe is one class act, as is her barn, staff, and family. She puts others before herself. What she accomplishes in advancing others and their personal obstacles and goals is so unbelievable that I would not expect many to understand. She has worked tirelessly to strengthen others who for one reason or another found a sense of purpose and accomplishment at her barn. I give Trisha all the credit for enhancing the lives she touches. And cousin ed, I wish the best for u.
