Christy Oukes is the head coach and owner of Silver Fox. She grew up in King City and has an extensive background in horses, passed her coach level 1, P.C. C2 level, as well as a BA in Fine Arts and History from Nipissing University.
Christy started coaching by volunteering to coach Pony Club Prince Phillip Games several years ago and fell in love with teaching. She went on to coach at several facilities in both Northern and Southern Ontario.
Christy believes that teaching horseback riding should also include teaching one to be a good horse person, which means learning about how to take care of the horse as well. She also has a firm belief that a solid base of dressage makes even a jumper a better rider. She has a variety of show experience, showing in hunter/ jumpers, Pony club, dressage and eventing. Though eventing is truly her passion!
Murray is often seen around the farm fixing fences and on the tractor, although not a horse person he does pause to pat the horses from time to time.
