Never content to let winter slow us down, Team Knollwood has planned an action-packed February for everyone!

 

We’re hosting a used clothing sale on Saturday, February 13 for our academy riders. Join us in the show barn lounge from 11:00 AM until 2:00 PM and shop our collection formerly worn by fellow Knollwood riders.

Riders with donations, don’t forget to get your items to the Knockout office by the end of the day on Saturday, February 6.

AND, we’re looking for some academy mom or dad volunteers to help our up and coming academy stars put outfits together.  Please consider being a personal shopper, and sign up in the school barn lounge.

 

Patchwork Pony is coming to Wisconsin the following Saturday, February 13 and will be setting up at the Comfort Suites Conference Center in Johnson Creek. The sale will run from 8:30 AM until 4:30 PM, and our own Sue Berget will be there from 8:30 AM until 10:30 AM to help Knollwood Kids shop. Mom to Haley, our 2018 Triple Crown winner, Sue is an expert in fit and putting the perfect outfit together.

Please let Ann know if you’d like to meet Sue at the sale!      

Great thanks to Sue for helping our riders look great.

 

 

Our first, and hopefully last, ever virtual banquet is coming up fast at 7:00 PM on Saturday, February 27.

Awards are arriving, party bags are being created, and the Knockout officers are planning a big party to celebrate the club’s 25th banquet.

New for 2021?

 

Party Bags!

We know everyone is missing being together, so kids can purchase a bag of goodies for only $10. Each bag will include a beverage of your choice, popcorn, a noisemaker, (sorry, parents!) and  jewels for the occasion.  Best of all, you’ll receive your magnet honoring our 2020 school horse of the year!

Parents can get party bags, too!  For only $15, you’ll get white or red wine, salami, crackers, chocolate, the coveted magnet, and a NOISEMAKER!

Orders are due by 1:00 PM on February 21.

All proceeds will benefit the Knockouts, and you can get your order form in the school barn lounge.

 

Seat Auction!

We decided that the arena would be a little too quiet for the virtual banquet, so the Knockouts are auctioning off 20 socially distanced seats.

For a minimum $50 donation per seat to the Knockouts, you’ll enjoy VIP seating, a party bag, the chance to read off some of the winners, and to help with the parade of the top 10 lesson horses of the year.

Perhaps most importantly, you’ll be expected to participate in events, with cheering winners, and, of course, heckling Scott during his ‘State of the Farm’ address.

Open to Knollwood Kids of all ages, let's make the 25th banquet one to remember!

The auction starts Thursday, February 4, and runs through 6:00 PM on February 20.

All proceeds will benefit the Knollwood Knockouts.

 

 Other News!

Don’t forget to put your questions about all things Knollwood in the question tin! Ask us about the lesson horses, show horses, equipment, why we do things that seem crazy, anything you can think of. We’ll answer all your questions in upcoming blogs!

 

 

 

Riders looking forward to showing academy in 2021, don’t forget to join us at 7:00 PM on Saturday, March 6 for demonstrations. We’ll meet in the arena and review the official show schedule, and enjoy demos from some of our academy stars.  

It’s a fun evening for riders and parents to learn about why we love academy showing. We know you will too!

 

 

 

 

Summer camps are selling FAST!

Our first session of Tiny Tot camp is sold out, and the first week of Summer Riding School only has two spots left.
