Show weekend is almost here, and we can hardly wait!

Here are some insider tips about the upcoming show:

If you haven’t done so already, please pick up your shirt and back number packets in the school barn lounge. Your packet also includes information from our official show photographer, Hanna Agathen. We’re looking forward to seeing her photos of all the show smiles!

 

 Lunch Preorders can be picked up from our friendly concession stand with a minimum of contact. Chef Lisa may have a few extra meals, so if you forgot to preorder, please inquire at the stand.                

 

We’ll also be selling some #knollwoodstrong shirts for $25 as well as some clearance items at reduced prices. Check out the selection! And don’t forget to purchase your tickets for the gift baskets!

 

 The weather may be a little iffy on Sunday morning. We are thinking of postponing the start of the show to 1:00 PM if needed to avoid the rain. We’ll post any changes on Facebook and Instagram, and try to make contact via text or phone with everyone by Friday. 

Keep your fingers crossed!

 

 Raffle donations and the final bids for the Knollwood Suites are due tomorrow. The baskets are already looking great, and the VIP Suite is a great way to view all the action.

 We have a few spots left for practice rides on Friday late afternoon. With the sun setting earlier and earlier, and the show being outside, we’re starting at 5:00 PM. Please contact your instructor if you’d like to join the event.

 

 We have some great used clothing in the show barn lounge! Proceeds benefit our retired lesson horse fund, and jods and boots are only $10. Please feel free to check out the selection the next time you’re at the barn. It’s a great way to stock up on show clothes at a good price, and help our older chaps as well.

 

 We’re so excited to welcome Ainsley to judge both days of the show. One of Knollwood’s brightest stars ever, she brings years of experience in the ring. AND, she’s staying for the game portion of the show on Saturday. Watch out, world!

 

 Should you have any questions during the show, be sure to ask any of our helpers. We are grateful for the parents and Knollwood Kids who make these grand events possible.

 

 The show barn (and thus, the big rig) will be gone this weekend at the first ever Monarch Series National Horse Show in Springfield, Illinois. Luckily, we’ll still have some of the show barn kids to help the home show run smoothly!

 

 Overflow parking will be allowed in the Kettle Moraine Curling Club lot directly across from the small outdoor arena. Great thanks to our neighbors!

 

 A final reminder, masks are required when in the barn, or when you can’t maintain social distancing. Let’s work together!

 

 

See you at the show!
