It's almost time for the Knollwood Farm summer academy show! Whether it's your first show or your 50th, here's some great information, in no particular order, that will help make the weekend a smooth one!
New this year!
Help support Saddlebred Rescue by sponsoring a song on Sunday. For only $5, you can pick a song to be played during your class, or play it for a friend. All proceeds will go to saddlebreds in need, and you can sign up in the school barn lounge.
It all happens in the school barn lounge!
The ladies at the counter can help with any questions after you sign in and receive your number. Jodi will also be selling her ties and bling. We're also offering Woodwear and assorted Knollwood gear for sale. Be sure to check out the great selection!
This can be a challenge, especially on Sunday when classes are big, big, big. Our friends at the Kettle Moraine Curling Club have given us permission to park in their lot which is directly across from the school barn on Horseshoe Bend.
Please be sure to observe the 'No Parking' signs on Horseshoe Bend, unless you'd like a visit from a Delafield Police officer. Really. They mean business on this bend in the road.
The Knollwood Knockouts
Our youth group runs the concession stand, the gift baskets, and the 50/50. Please check out the baskets, and enjoy the treats offered by the club. All proceeds benefit the charitable efforts of the club, and they appreciate your support.
We have a saying around here, that 'It's Not the Ribbon, It's the Ride.'
Riders participating in the show are competing at different levels, from our maiden riders to seasoned show ring stars. They are each working on their individual goals, from steering into every corner to trotting a great inverted figure 8 in a Challenge Class.
We applaud each and every one of them, and thank you for offering your support to them as well.
Our lesson horses are the best out there.
They are still horses, so please watch small children in the crowd, and please celebrate within reason. Even the most wonderful horses in the world can be startled by sudden loud noises, and we thank you for your cooperation.
We're looking forward to a wonderful weekend with our friends, both two and four legged. Prepare to be impressed by the riders and horses you'll be watching! We know we will be.
