Joy Kloss, Owner and Head Trainer

Joy KlossA love for horses, a passion for competition, and a desire to match riders and horses together was the foundation that drove Joy Kloss to open Fox Hunt Farm in 1988. Breaking into the horse training world at the young age of 10, Joy broke her father’s 2-year-olds on the family farm and competed as a Child, Junior and Amateur in the Hunter/Jumper arena. Training with first-class equestrians, George Morris and Frank Chapot, Joy learned not just how to ride and compete, but also the fine art of horsemanship. After graduating with a B.S. degree in Accounting, she created her first equestrian business on the family farm, until purchasing Fox Hunt Farm and opening the doors on her dream. Fox Hunt Farm has enjoyed many successes with their clients from Equitation Finals winners to Pony Finals Qualifiers and numerous Green Hunter champions, including Manifesto, a Deveroux Cup recipient at the Washington Int’l Horseshow.

 

Kayley Kloss, Assistant Trainer Kayley Kloss and Munch

Kayley was riding even before she learned how to walk – or at least that’s how the daughter of Owner, Joy Kloss, remembers it! Kayley, although still young, has had a very illustrious show career, training not only with her mother, but with other top names in the industry such as Frank Madden and Timmy Kees. Kayley had multiple wins as a Junior in Medal, Maclay, and USEF qualifying classes, and also took home the Grand Prize in the 1996 Pony Finals Small Pony Hunter Class. She has shown for 10+ years at WEF, has enjoyed success with Jumpers at Levels 4 and 5, in the 7-8 year old division, and placed in the Top 10 at Capital Challenge. Kayley believes her strengths lie in “sharing the knowledge she has gained as a Junior and Amateur rider which makes it easy for me to relate to the young riders today. I’ve been so fortunate in my life that I want to give back to the young horses and the young riders of tomorrow.”
