Calling all Knockout members!





Our biggest event of the year is fast approaching, and we need your help.


The ASAW Summer Showcase starts next Saturday at the Ozaukee County Fairgrounds, and we're in charge.

The Knockouts and ASAW run the show, and split all the proceeds 50/50.  It's a wonderful chance to learn the inner workings of horse shows, and it's a great benefit to the Knockouts!

And, the ASAW portion funds the scholarships offered each year to ASAW members.  This year, Sarah and Jess each won $3000 towards their first year of college, so we need to put some money back into the pot!

On Friday, we're looking for Knockouts to deliver bagged shavings to the stabling area, to help set up the concession stand, and to organize center ring, trophies, and ribbons.

 On Saturday and Sunday, our crack concession team will be on hand to provide show riders, friends, and spectators with great food.

 They even provide delivery service to the barns for the busy workers! Would you like to meet new friends from other barns? Sign up to deliver lunch orders.  You'll be a really popular person!

The concession stand is air conditioned, so it's really popular.  We're looking for Knockouts to work a shift or 2 to serve all the hungry people.

We're expecting the show to be another big one.  The show features  'B' and academy classes on both Saturday and Sunday.


 We're excited to have Michelle Krentz traveling from Kentucky to judge the show this year.  Michelle is the Media and Marketing Manager for the American Saddlebred Horse Association, and is a life long exhibitor of the breed.  Michelle started her career as a Knollwood Kid, was an equitation star on memorable horses including Jazz March and CH Louisville Lass, and is now a multi world champion rider in multiple divisions. We're thrilled she's joining us for the weekend!


Team Knollwood is introducing 9 new riders to the show ring in the Maiden academy division on Sunday afternoon.  This show is well known for its history of starting new riders in the small, well controlled indoor arena that's used for the future stars of the show ring.



The Knockouts are looking forward to a wonderful weekend of horse showing at the beautiful, park like setting of the Ozaukee County Fairgrounds.  Sign up sheets are going up in the school barn lounge for those of you who'd like to join all the fun.

The show is known for starting young riders on their way to successful show careers.  We hope you'll come help your youth group, and stay to watch the show.  You never know what the future holds for these new show riders!


See you in Cedarburg!
