The Horses are Shedding! Spring is Coming!
Well, well, well ...
Didn't Scott and Carol pick the perfect time to head to Florida?
Hope you’re all enjoying the Wisconsin heat wave when 15 degrees feels downright balmy!
We’re excited that spring is on the way, as evidenced by the start of shedding season. Be sure to ask the helper in your house about the joys of the season!
We have a lot coming up in the next couple of months, so let’s make sure everyone’s up to date.
As you can tell, Knollwood is a pretty busy place these days. Please be sure to arrive 15 minutes early for your lesson so the helpers can assist you in getting to the arena so your lesson can start on time. If you get your own horse ready, please be in the arena at least 5 minutes before the start of your lesson.
If you’re going to watch the Knockouts Virtual banquet from home, be sure to order your swag bag by this Saturday, February 20 at 1:00 PM.
And, if you’d like to help the Knockouts and watch the events in person, be sure to enter the seat auction going on in the school barn lounge. For a minimum $50 donation to the youth group, you can join the Knockout officers in the arena and help with the festivities if you’d like!
Act soon, as we only have 20 seats to auction!
The Patchwork Pony Road Show is this Saturday from 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM at the Comfort Suites Johnson Creek Conference Center. Sue, mom of our 2018 Triple Crown winner Haley will be there from 8:30 - 10:30 AM to help you shop, and she'd love to meet you!
If you’d like to know why we love academy showing so much, be sure to join us for the Academy Show demo night on Saturday, March 6. We’ll meet in the arena to watch demos by experienced Knollwood academy stars, and you can ask questions of riders and parents, as well as learn our 2021 schedule.
It’s a really kid friendly event, and not as fact dense as the first meeting. Please bring the interested rider(s) in your house!
You can sign up in the school barn.
We’ll schedule individual meetings in March as well.
Our first academy show for 2021 is the IASPHA Spring Show on April 17 and 18 at Beyond Stable Farm in Woodstock, Illinois. One of our favorite shows, it features academy classes for all levels, including a ‘Green’ division for riders participating in their first calendar year of showing.
We can hardly wait for the season to begin!
Our first Knollwood show of 2021 is coming up outdoors on May 22-23. We’ll start taking entries on March 22, and entries will close on April 19 to make sure our show shirts are ready in time.
Summer camps are selling fast, and we already have three sessions sold out. Please make your purchases quickly to avoid disappointment. Of course, please give us a call at 262-367-2391 with questions!
Knollwood Summer 2021 is coming fast, and we hope you’ll join us!
And don't forget to drop any and all questions in the tin. We have some great submissions so far, and would love to hear all your questions, and answer them in future blogs.
