About Us

Fox View Farm is comprised of approximately 50 acres of vinyl fenced pastures nestled amongst rolling hills in picturesque Central Pennsylvania. The farm is home to two barns: a refurbished 1800’s bank barn with 19 stalls and a new 80’x180′ indoor riding ring with 24 spacious stalls flanking both sides. The roomy indoor sports generous sand footing and a lighted 100’x200′ sand footed outdoor is available for our equine guests. The property also includes a large hill and an open field, perfect for galloping or conditioning, and trails for leisure riding.

Fox View Farm is a fun, safe, family oriented riding environment.

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. In 2010 she qualified student Anna Foltzer for Zone II Hunter Finals and Olivia Mathews for Zone II Hunter Finals. 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.

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.

We offer extensive experience in prepping horses for local through “A” rated shows. Many of Farra’s students have qualified for the Zone 2 Hunter Finals. Fox View Farm has been in the ribbons in such prestigious horse shows as the I Love New York show held in Lake Placid, NY; the Lake Placid Horse Show; Sussex County Farm and Horse Show; Blue Rock and Quentin Fall in Quentin, PA; the Elmira Charity Horse Show in Horseheads, NY; and the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, Florida.

Bradley Caine
Head Trainer

Fox View Farm is proud to announce that Bradley Caine will be the head trainer. Bradley will be teaching all of the advanced and intermediate students on their horses or our quality lesson horses and ponies. Bradley will also travel to horse shows with the farm as we compete.

Fox View Farms has a exciting breeding program with very well breed youngsters. I am excited and fortunate to have Bradley help me mold these young prospects into successful show hunters and jumpers.

Bradley and her family owned and operated “The Winter Place Farm” in Salisbury Maryland where many famous horses were trained and shown successfully, becoming horses that were legends in time. A few of these horses include; Jet Run, De’Gage, Rocky Road, Excel, Cavallino, Pop Pop, Rivet, Perfect Stranger, Regardless, Magic Parade, Surf’s Up, and Check Mate. Several horses, which include Old Dominion, Jet Run, and Gozo were inducted into the Hall of Frame.

Bradley was trained by George Morris, Ronnie Beard, Chrystine Tauber, Bernie Traurig, Joey Darby and had lessons with Nelson Pessoa when he was in the country. Bradley showed in both the hunter and jumper rings, qualifying for all the nation horses shows and winning many national titles. Bradley has also couched students to all of the national horse shows.

Bradley holds her “r” as a judge for the Untied States Equestrian Federation.  She will continue to judge shows and travel to give clinics.

Fox View Farm is very excited for our students and horses to have Bradley at the farm to share her lifelong wisdom and knowledge of the equestrian sport with all of us.  Abundant amounts of knowledge awaits us all!
