Georgia Hunt started riding at the age of 5, and has had tunnel vision ever since. Her level of commitment and enthusiasm towards achieving greatness in the tough world of show jumping is unwavering. Along with many hours, and a lot of hard work, Georgia’s keen competitive nature and persistence have presented her with many opportunities and connections in the industry, and given her a leg-up on many other young athletes with similar ambitions.
In recent years, Georgia has been enjoying learning how to develop young prospects of her own in preparation for both the show ring and sales.
In April of 2016, Hunt Equestrian Inc. purchased the business Foxstone Stable, and since this transition, Georgia has also been focusing on developing riders and helping them achieve their own goals. Thanks to a wonderful support team, generous investors, sponsors, and partners, Georgia has a lovely string of horses to develop and campaign.

Lynne grew up riding in Duncan, BC at the age of six on her family farm. She excelled in the 4-H program achieving the highest order of her honours within the national program. As a junior rider Lynne developed her horsemanship skills through many aspects of equestrian sport from husbandry of the horse, general performance, trail, dressage, jumpers and eventing.
She worked weekends at an 18 stall veterinarian clinic being responsible for turn out, stall cleaning, feeding, pasture management , veterinarian care required for equine patients, and starting young Arabians.
Upon high school graduation, Lynne left her equestrian activities to achieve her Bachelor of Commerce from Concordia University in Montreal. She returned to Vancouver Island to explore conference management and run her family heating company with her husband. In little time her passion for horses was turned into her career. She became an Equine Canada Certified Coach in 1995 and excelled in provincial competitions in the eventing discipline.
As Lynne has a continuous desire to educate herself within the industry, after much success in eventing, she continued her competitive riding in jumpers and hunters. Having purchased and settled on her original family farm in Duncan in 2000, she expanded the facility to incorporate an all weather outdoor riding ring, seasonal jumper field with cross-country elements and added an intimate school horse program.
She focuses on the fundamentals of riding to provide students and horses with a fun, safe and confident building program. She has prepared several of her students to excel to provincial level competitions, promotes the Equine Canada Rider Level program and has mentored students to achieve their Instructor of Beginners.
Lynne is honoured to join the Foxstone Team.
Krista first started working at Foxstone Stable in 2004. Since this time she has worked in every position possible. She began mucking stalls part-time and eventually worked into full time hours, along with more responsibility as the primary feeder; in 2008 she earned an exciting new role as Head Groom. She worked hard for this position, and her keen eye and attention to detail made her a great asset.
She spent two years traveling with the horses to horse shows all over the island, onto the mainland, and even into the USA. Her most memorable shows were “The Oaks” and the “Spruce Meadows Masters”! Not only did Krista travel with, take care of, and groom these amazing athletes, but she also had the honor of exercising them. During this time she and her husband had the privilege of living at the stables in the suite above the barn; this brought her closer to her beloved equine friends and allowed her to be more involved in all of the day to day activities.
She took a step back in 2013 to start a family with her husband, Rob, but she has always stayed a part of the stable and continues to play an active role in many aspects of barn activities. She enjoys being a part of the team on all levels and cannot wait to spend more time working with the horses and the wonderful people at the stable.
Abigail started riding at the age of 10 and quickly realized her passion for horses.
She continued riding lease horses until the age of 16 when she purchased her first horse. At 18 she moved out to Calgary to further her horse experience and continued to ride and work there for 3.5 years.
Moving back to the Island to be closer to family made Foxstone a perfect fit to continue her horse career. She is excited to learn, grow, and travel with the Foxstone team.
Livia grew up in the Comox Valley where she began riding at the age of 11 and has been hooked ever since. She takes every opportunity to further her skills in the horse world- both in and out of the saddle.
In the Valley, she competed at local shows and fell in love with the show ring. After high school graduation, Livia moved down Island to start her journey at Foxstone.
She is very excited to explore the bigger shows, learn more about grooming and further her riding!
Meggy De Jong
Meggy was born and raised in the Netherlands. She grew up in a family of professional horsemen, and started riding ponies competitively at a very young age. At 12 years old she started competing on horses, and was fortunate to earn the opportunity to ride for many different people. This started her career as a professional show jumper, and she has more recently broadened her success into the hunter ring as well.
Meggy’s impressive junior career includes great placings in the national show jumping CSI*1 and class Z and ZZ Karpendonk and many more shows in the Netherlands. She loves working with young horses, and really instills confidence and encourages their best natural qualities. Meggy has become an asset to Foxstone as an additional rider and knowledgeable set of eyes, and looks forward to the career ahead of her in North America!
