Spring Break Has Started!

Many, many Knollwood families are on a break away from Wisconsin’s ‘spring,’ and many more are heading out around Easter.  Please keep us informed of your schedule changes so we can arrange make up lessons.

Headed away from home? Be sure to take a pic of yourself in your Knollwood gear, and we’ll post it on social media. So far, we’ve heard from Lauren in Florida, and Aubrey in South Carolina.



The Great Pumpkin Is Here!

Please join us in welcoming Pumpkin to the happy group of our best lesson horses in the world.

Pumpkin comes to us from Kentucky, where he was teaching lessons for Nancy Brannon. Handsome Pumpkin is half Morgan, and half Connemara Pony.

He’s successfully joined the herd in the pasture, and doesn’t have a single mark on him, meaning that the current school horses have welcomed him without any initiation rituals. It’s a sign that he’s really a good guy.

He’s already teaching lessons, and can find his own way to his stall, something that Thomas still can’t do after 4 years.

Please stop by and introduce yourself to the grand man.



The Deadlines are Coming!

April 1 is the last day for Knollwood Spring entries, and for ordering our fun Knollwood jods. Please talk to your instructor if you have any questions.


Questions Welcomed

We’re lucky to have some of the smartest and most educated lesson horses around. It turns out that they’d like to answer your questions in future blogs.

Please submit your questions in the box in the lounge, and please address the question to the horse you’d like to answer your query. You might be surprised by their literacy!



Easter Holiday

We will be closed on Easter Sunday, April 16. All lessons scheduled for Easter will be credited to your account.



Get Ready For the Car Wash!

Knockouts, please be sure to keep Sunday, July 17 free for the annual car wash and brat bash at the Hartland Piggly Wiggly.

It’s the most entertaining fundraiser of the year, and we hope everyone can make it.

Food Drive!

Join us in restocking the Food Pantry of Waukesha County at a time when they really need donations.

FASH Horse Show

Minnesota State Fairgrounds, St Paul, MN

The show horses are off to their first big show of the year. The show is full of deep competition, and the facilities are wonderful, so why not take a trip to Minnesota to cheer them on?


Knollwood Spring Show

May 13-15

New this year, we’ll be holding pattern and Knollwood Challenge classes on Friday night starting at 6:30.

On Saturday, we’ll feature all adults, all walk trot and canter riders, and our walk trot riders aged 11 and up.

Sunday will showcase our leadliners, 10 and under walk trot riders, and all of our maiden stars.


The extravaganza needs many hands to make it a success, so please save time that weekend to help with concessions, organization, gift baskets, or other fun support positions.

We have so much fun!
