About

The Farm

Sea Hunter Farm is a scenic farm located close to the Francis Marion National Forest with access to miles of trails. We offer grass pastures, a grass riding arena with professional jumps, beautiful 4 stall barn with 12×12 stalls, 2 wash racks for bathing and grooming, and a large pond with dock that is great for watching those riding in the ring or fishing. The property is fully fenced in with a gated entrance.

 

Trainer: Kit Menis

Kit Menis started riding at the age of 6. She fox hunted with Middleton Place Hounds, where she was one of the youngest members to receive her colors when she was 10 years old. Kit also competed on the show circuit in the Hunters and Equitation divisions as a junior. While attending college she rode on the Clemson University Equestrian Hunt Seat and Western teams. After graduation she took on the job of coaching Clemson’s Equestrian Team.

As an adult Kit continued showing and won many Championships and Year End Awards in the Adult Hunters and Equitation Medal classes, including 2013 Year End Adult Medal Champion. She continues to foxhunt with Middleton Place Hounds and is now joined in the field by her 10 year old daughter.

Kit has enjoyed teaching students for the past 3 years, and is now excited to be starting her own farm with her husband and daughter. She looks forward to teaching students of all ages good horsemanship along with proper riding technique.

Training for Horse and Rider

For the Horse

“It is not the great trainer who can cause his or her horse to perform. The great trainer can cause a horse to WANT to perform.”

Sea Hunter Farm offers exceptional training for horses and ponies. From teaching the young horse from the ground up to tuning up the experienced hunter jumper. We offer a range of training programs that provide the best for your horse.

Training packages are customized for you and your horse’s specific needs. Please contact us to discuss what training options meet your goals. (Photo: Paddington came to SHF to be started under saddle. Here he is with Trainer Kit Menis showing off his jumping skills.)

Lessons

“The horse you get off is not the same as the horse you got on. It is your job as a rider to ensure that as often as possible, the change is for the better.”

At Sea Hunter Farm we pride ourselves in teaching our students all areas of horsemanship including horse care and safety, along with proper riding technique. We focus on hunters and equitation and encourage all of our students to strive to be a part of our horse show team.

We do offer lessons for beginner students as young as 5 years old. Availability is limited. Once students graduate from the beginner lesson program, we would like all of our students to be working toward half-leasing or owning a horse or pony. (Photo: SHF student EC working on her balance.)

Trainer, Kit Menis, is available to travel to give lessons. Please inquire if you are interested in having her come to your facility.
