This Saturday, the Knollwood Knockouts are hosting an inaugural fundraising event.
At last Fall's Knollwood show, the Knockouts auctioned off the opportunity for a group of Knollwood Kids to give their fearless leader Scott a riding lesson.
Bidding was fast and furious, with friends from Scott's past and present customer base joining the fun. Heck, bids even came in from fellow professionals from many states!
The winning team consists of 1 former and 2 current show riders. The faculty includes:
A graduate of our lesson program and an equitation star, Shelby is now a graduate of Lawrence University, and is in grad school at the Medical College of Wisconsin. In her rare spare time, Shelby helps out the Knockouts and helps with the Tuesday evening academy class.
Knollwood's favorite red-headed equitation rider, Richie needs little introduction. He started riding after his older sister caught the horse bug, and zoomed through our academy program to become a serious student of equitation.
He's won national and world championships, rides every chance he can, and helps in whatever way he can, whether it's in the show barn or as a lesson barn helper.
He's ridden with both Scott and Carol for years, and will offer valuable insight to Scott's mind.
She may be the youngest instructor on the team, but don't let that fool you. Brooklyn is an old soul, always listening and thinking about many things.
She also came up through the academy program, and even won a world championship her first year in the show horse world.
Her quiet fierceness will be a valuable asset with teaching a student who knows it all.
