Team Knollwood enjoyed a near perfect summer horse show weekend in Roscoe competing at Mid America Horse Show Association's Signature Show. The weather was wonderful to enjoy the beautiful outdoor arena, hospitality was fabulous with ice cream treats, popcorn, pizza, and even a water balloon fight!

 

Our riders shone at the sunny show, too!

Mary and Panic represented the 'B' horses, and they did it well. They started the show for us by winning the Show Pleasure class for riders 50 and over, and finished the show with a strong fourth place ribbon in the championship for riders 18 and over.  Panic really enjoyed the nice long straightaways, and Mary sure looked like she did too!

Hanna helped us Saturday morning, acting as hair stylist for all our riders.  During the show, she helped us on the rail, and then did a quick change into her suit.  She showed Panic in the Good Hands qualifier during the afternoon performance, and won the class!  She's on her way to the final in October.

 

Our 14 academy riders did us proud on Saturday morning.

The walk, trot, and canter riders rode like pros, using the big arena to their advantage.  The horses loved the big ring, too!

Classes were large and deep. Maddie and Syd represented Team Knollwood well in the 13 and under division.  Korinne, Erika, Tessa, McKailey, and Paige showed in the 14-17 division and did us proud in the big classes.

Our walk and trot riders have been progressing all year, and it's been a blast to watch. Juliet had Dexter looking like a million bucks, making passes off the rail.  Mia and Murphy are fast becoming a team, and looked like they've been together forever. Florence made great progress since her last show, and Hailee and Hooper looked really polished.

It was hard to tell if Margit or Baxter had more fun on Saturday morning, and Emma had a blast with pro Eddie.

Great thanks to Heather who came down Saturday morning to help prep horses for the academy performance, and who helped during and after the show as well.

We had a blast!
