Since they do so much of the work, it’s only fair to give the lesson horses the chance to share their thoughts about Knollwood Summer 2023.
Here, in no particular order are summer musings from the best lesson horses in the world.
My favorite part of summer is Wednesday afternoons. While the campers are having fun with the Soul Fire artists, I get to nap. I like to call it my Wednesday siesta.
My favorite thing about summer is all the grooming. I’ve never looked so good.
I like the relaxed bathroom rules in the little outdoor ring. I’m not allowed to pee in the indoor arena, but the little outdoor is my personal urinal.
We decided no picture was needed. We know you can visualize yourselves.
The grass in center ring is delicious!
I LOVE pattern camps. They give me a chance to develop my latest pattern comedy routines.
I love summers, but sometimes I have no idea what's going on.
I love the Friday horse shows. I’m perfecting my ‘faraway look’ pose for the camera.
I’ve almost perfected the world’s slowest trot. Almost. I’m still practicing.
Camp is fantastic. I could do it in my sleep, and I sometimes do.
This is the best.
Endless children. It’s perfection.
I don’t like straight lines, and I really hope the kids don’t either.
I often wonder exactly how many helpers there are.
Is there camp going on?
Games are the best part of lessons. Can we play more?
The horses are having a great summer, and much thanks to everyone who has joined us for Knollwood Summer 2023, so far!
