The Stables at Fox Crossing monthly schooling shows are back, with a big expansion planned

COCHANVILLE, Pa.--The Stables At Fox Crossing (SFC) offers excellent training opportunities at its monthly jumper shows.

PLEASE JOIN US FOR TWO BIG DRESSAGE AND COMBINED TRAINING SHOWS SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 26 AND SUNDAY, OCTOBER 24TH.  Change  of date in October. Mark your calendars now and feel free to join us for either or both! 

SFC 1SFC’s mission is to provide an exceptional and fun learning experience for every competitor, whether it be over 2’ fences at a first ever competition or a 3’6 tune-up for the seasoned competitor.

SFC is known for inviting, educational jump courses, rider-friendly management and beautifully decorated jumps.

An electronic timer system and timer board add to the ambience of the shows and spectator enjoyment.

Regular divisions include two-phase, time first round, and jump-off classes, with ribbons for first through sixth plus Division Champion and Reserve.

SFC’s summer shows run in the outdoor ring.

Currently, shows are run to comply with covid restrictions and to preclude all person to person interface, so you can relax and compete.

Pre-entry and pre-payment are mandatory for covid shows.

Closing dates for pre-entries are in effect.

Division size is limited, and time is scheduled between divisions so no crowding in the trailer park.

Efficiency, safety and rider enjoyment are top priorities.


For the future, in May, SFC began construction of a new show ring, called "Moore Stadium" in appreciation of Mr. Walter Moore for the donation of land.

The new show ring will be SFC's largest yet, with well over 30,000 square feet and when combined with the existing indoor arena and two outside rings, SFC anticipates hosting recognized shows upon completion of the Moore Stadium.

With larger shows comes greater demand for parking, so SFC has expanded both the lower and upper parking lots for cars and trailers.

SFC also upgraded the cross country/derby field.

After removing old fence lines and a few trees, SFC has dedicated seven acres for x-country schooling and show.

With the new water complex with banks and steps, three new ditches and multiple new portable obstacles, it’s a safe bet there will be many happy riders in SFC's future.

With so many wonderful additions and upgrades, it's no wonder that the cost of completion is straining the finances of this local boarding and show barn, so SFC is asking its ever-growing equestrian family to help with donations small and large.

When someone donates $100 or more, SFC will engrave a brick paver with your family or horse name to be displayed on the walkway around the new Stadium, a wonderful way to create a lasting memorial to a beloved horse.
