H. J. Fox began 14 years ago as a one day - one ring show at Malone Farms. The concept for the show was to provide a positive, competitive, fun atmosphere for beginners at a reasonable cost. Sportsmanship, Teamwork, and Welfare of the Horse were top priorities. H. J. Fox was designed to be a stepping stone between local saddle club/4-H shows and the GHJA level of competition.
The show quickly grew to 2 rings, and the second year introduced a third. As the show grew, so did the competitors, and H. J. Fox adapted to not only offering more advanced classes, but actually began holding GHJA Locally Sanctioned Shows.
The majority of Fox shows each year are held at the GA International Horse Park in Conyers, GA. This facility is so world class in its design and lay-out, not to mention the capacity to stall hundreds of horses in top rate stalls with rubber mats and ceiling fans, that we are thankful to have the opportunity to host shows there. In 2011, for the first time, the entire H. J. Fox Signature Series (6 week-ends of shows) will be held at the Horse Park in Conyers.
As time marches on, Malone Farms is adding on to their facilities, in order to accommodate larger crowds. As we have many who love to show at Malone Farms as well, we will continue to host GHJA and Schooling Shows at Malone Farms.
As many of those who began 13 years ago with H. J. Fox advance and now show at "A" shows, we are adding divisions to serve as an inexpensive way to obtain those valuable "show miles" that are vital whenever you move to a new horse, a new division, to build confidence, or condition a horse who's coming back from an injury, etc.. Our goals include hosting an USEF "A" show in the near future. (However, H. J. Fox will never abandon it's popular "Beginner Ring" and "Ring II"!)
In our more advanced rings in 2011 at the higher levels, we will strive to replicate the type, size, striding, and courses needed for the "A" shows by offering classes specifically intended to prepare our exhibitors for the "A's". We have (for years) had many USEF "R" and "r" judges, and will continue to do so in the future.
And one more thought . . . "How many of you know where "H. J. Fox" got its name?"
