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.
Allison’s life with horses started when she was 10 and has never looked back. At 13, she started doing both hunter/jumper shows and eventing where qualified to complete at the CCI 2* level.
She then decided to focus primarily on show jumping where she competed up to 1.40m on her horse Princess.
Allison joined Team Foxstone in October of 2021 and has been loving it each day since!
Elise grew up in Victoria where she started riding at the age of 10. Throughout her highschool years, she spent much of her free time at the barn, working as well as riding horses. Upon graduation, Elise was excited to work at Foxstone Stable to continue her pursuit of riding and learning more about all aspects of working with high level horses and athletes.
Since joining the Foxstone team, Elise has enjoyed traveling to horse shows, working closely with the horses, and being part of such a welcoming community. She looks forward to continuing to learn and grow while surrounded by a great group of horses and people.
Zjaya is a fourth year university student pursuing her Bachelor’s of Sport Management at Brock University in Ontario. She has been part of Team Foxstone since she was 6 years old, and is currently working as an intern with us to learn the ropes of equestrian operations management!
Alicia fell in love with horses and began riding at the age of 6 in a small town in the mountains of Switzerland.
Starting at a private barn, she learned not only all about riding western, but most importantly how to take care of the horses and build a valuable partnership with them.
In 2013, Alicia together with her family made the big move to Kelowna, Canada. Without knowing a word of English, it wasn’t long before Alicia built an inseparable bond with the horses that one night showed up on her family’s property. With horses being so pure, honest, and non-judgemental, she quickly learned that communication is so much more than just words.
Since moving to Canada, she fell in love with show jumping and successfully competed in the Hunters, Jumpers, and equitation’s and recently qualified for Capital Challenge to ride in the THIS Medal Finals in Maryland. Driven to learn as much as she can and not shy of hard work, Alicia decided to come to the Island as a working student for Foxstone.
While riding, grooming, and working together with an outstanding group of people, she continues to fine tune her skills and knowledge and is excited for the months ahead together with the Foxstone Team.
