Team Knollwood lost one of it’s celebrated members today when SA Denmark’s Geronimo was laid to rest.

This seasoned campaigner was born in South Africa on January 3, 1997, and came to the US in 2004 by way of England.

For the past seven years, Geronimo was a member of the Honkamp family. Originally purchased for Susan to show, Geronimo went on to introduce two of her granddaughters to the show ring.  Both Payton and Tatum enjoyed their first rides in suits on this grand soul.

Always ready for the show ring, Geronimo had a show record that made him a CH many times over, and included wins throughout the Midwest.

In fact, Tatum won her Limit Rider Show Pleasure Championship earlier this month on Geronimo at the IASPHA Summer Show!

 

We’ll miss this grand soul who safely introduced many riders to the joy of the Saddlebred show horse.

Peace to Geronimo, and to everyone who loved him.
