The Monarch Championship Horse Show has just begun this morning, and Team Knollwood is happy to report a win in their first class.
Super team Kim and Nacho did it again, winning the Single Bit qualifier for master riders. He and Kim always look like they’re loving every minute in the ring. They now have their sights set on the championship class on Friday night!
Pleasure equitation finals are a big part of the Monarch show, and Knollwood will be well represented in both finals.
Brooklyn, Maddie, and Shaye will be competing in the 13 and under Pleasure Equitation Olympics, and the UPHA Pleasure Challenge Cup for riders 13 and under.
Maiya and Natallie will be representing Team Knollwood in the senior editions of both finals.
Both finals consist of railwork and patterns, and we can hardly wait to watch Knollwood Kids compete against some of the best riders in the country.
If you can’t make it to the gorgeous arena in Springfield, Illinois, you can watch the show for free on SeaHorse Video here.
Entries for the fall Knollwood show are due on September 15.
It’s a quick turnaround, and we are still awaiting a significant number of entries. Please be sure to get yours in soon so we can get the shirt and award orders in soon.
Speaking of the Knollwood show, we’re asking for your help. Our show barn riders will be on the road at the Mane Event Show while we’re hosting the home show weekend.
We’re looking for some additional parents and riders to help with set up, concessions, and with the gift baskets. You can sign up for volunteer hours here, and can sign up for gift basket items in the school barn lounge.
Movie Night is Coming!
All Knockouts are invited to watch ‘Racing Stripes’ with their fellow club members on Saturday, September 23 at 6:00 PM. The club will provide movie snacks, and the event is free to all Knockouts. You can sign up in the school barn lounge.
