We're in winter denial.
Scott and Carol just returned from a tropical vacation, so we've decided that it's officially spring at Knollwood.
With show season coming up, we've designed some really fun events for everyone to enjoy, and to help them think spring. Here’s your guide to all the events we’ve planned for Team Knollwood
Walk Trot Canter Pattern Class
Friday, March 8 at 6:30
Join us for a fun pattern class just for out walk, trot, and canter riders. We’ll practice skills, and maybe even work on the Spring IASPHA pattern.
Remember to buy your Friday passport to take advantage of all the exciting Friday classes coming up!
Saturday, March 9 at noon
Join us in the show barn lounge for lunch and to meet with Knockout leaders and other parents to find out how you can become more involved with our award winning youth group. We’d love to see some new faces support the kids at barn events, horse shows, and charitable events. You’ll meet all sorts of great parents and kids!
Patchwork Pony Road Show
Saturday, March 16.
9 AM - 4 PM
Hilton Garden Inn, Oconomowoc, WI
The Patchwork Pony is bringing their inventory to the Midwest for the first time. They have a deep selection of academy and show attire available. It’s the perfect place to get set for show season 2019.
How to Make the Perfect Bun!
Saturday, March 16
Come join us in the show barn lounge to learn from the best. Laura and Sue will be there to teach you how to make a classic bun for riders who wear hats and those who don’t. Please bring your daughter so someone can practice on her hair. Of course, snacks and beverages will be provided. Please sign up in the school barn lounge so we can prepare the refreshments.
Saturday, March 30 and Sunday, March 31
Our show barn riders and our experienced academy riders will enjoy a weekend with guest instructors from Zubrod Stables in Kentucky.
We will not be conducting any lessons on the 30th or 31st while our show riders get energized for the 2019 campaign.
Saturday, April 6
Come meet your Knockout officers, board members, and your fellow members. We’ll finish up the spring show, and make plans for Knollwood summer 2019.
IASPHA Spring Show
Fields and Fences Equestrian Center, Gurnee, IL
It’s our first academy show of the season!
With WTC classes on Saturday, and WT classes on Sunday, this series of shows is one of our favorites. New this year- the Green walk trot rider division. Riders can ride in this division for the entire first season they’re showing. It’s a great way to keep our newest show riders competing on a level playing field.
Out of barn entry blanks are available in the school barn lounge!
Knollwood Spring Show
We’re excited about our revamped in-barn show series.
New this year is a relaxed dress code. Riders will all be competing in long sleeved tees designed for the show. Riders will select their shirt size on their entry blank, and will pick it up on the day of the show.
Because of the shirt order, entries will close April 1.
We’ve also added games to the end of Saturday’s performance, and show barn riders are eligible to participate in this section.
In an attempt to simplify the entry process, we’re offering show packages and pricing as well. Let’s keep this easy!
We hope to have entry blanks ready by the end of this week.
