Things are heating up for Knollwood Summer 2021, and we have stories to share.

From horse shows to Woodwear orders to sold out summer camp, you won’t want to miss a thing.

 

The lesson horses have returned from a very successful Prairie State Classic Horse Show. Our ten riders learned some lessons, boosted their skills, and gained plenty of confidence for the future.

Oh, and they had a lot of fun, as usual!

Academy riders will show next at the Oshkosh Charity Horse Show on June 26.

 

 

 

 

 

The Knollwood Summer Show is coming up fast on July 17-18, and we have plenty of updates about the weekend.

We plan on starting the show outside on Saturday at 10:00 AM, and outside on Sunday at 9:00 AM.  If the weather doesn’t cooperate, we’ll move the show indoors and will start at noon both days.

We’re refining the Sunday schedule to give riders and families a more precise idea as to the time their classes will take place. We’ll update with times after entries are complete.

Entries are due next Tuesday, June 15.

If you’re not able to show, but would like to purchase a show shirt, they’re available for only $20. Just fill out an entry with the desired size selected and write ‘shirt only’ across the form. We’ll charge your account.

 

We will be teaching practice rides on Friday night, July 16, and will start sign ups as soon as horses are assigned.

 

 

Sold out Summer Riding School starts on Monday with a Tiny Tot Camp AND a pattern camp. We can hardly wait for riders to spend their summer days at the barn!

 

 

 

 

We’re ordering Knollwood tank tops through June 19 in misses and girls sizes. These beauties come in lilac and black, and are only $25.  The tanks will feature a small Knollwood logo on the front, and size samples are available in the school barn.

 

 

Show horses are off to Springfield, Illinois for the Midwest Charity Horse Show June 15-19. It’s a sell out this year, and promises to be a fantastic competition. Horses and riders from all over the country will be attendance to show in the beautiful restored coliseum.

Team Knollwood will be there in numbers, and you can watch all the action on Richfield Video with a subscription.

We’ll post the Knollwood show schedule before the show begins so you can plan your viewing schedule!

 

 

 

Summer Parents’ Night Out is almost here!

Let your kids spend the evening with us on Saturday, June 19 from 5 PM to 8 PM while you get an evening to yourself! Drop your kids off at Knollwood and they can create memories with their barn friends. The Knockout officers and board members will host the event where Knollwood Kids play games, eat dinner, and enjoy an evening at the farm.  The event is only $25, and you can sign up in the school barn office.

 

 

Knollwood will be closed on Sunday, July 4 in observance of Independence Day. Please keep us informed of your holiday schedules so we can plan lessons for the holiday weekend.

 

 

 

Since all of Team Knollwood will be at the Summerfun Show on Saturday, July 10, we will not be holding ANY lessons that day. We will credit the lesson for all Saturday riders.

Please join us at State Fair Park to watch and cheer!
