2017 Arabian Horse Association Open Competition Award Winner

Knight has been shown on the Arabian, open local hunter, and open USEF rated hunter circuit. Over his
most recent 8 years (2009-2017) on the open circuit he has been successful with over 11 different youth riders in both
USEF rated and local shows in hunters, medal classes, derbies and equitation. He was started under saddle by Kathy Gilker. Knight's show career began at local open hunter and combined training shows at 4/5 years old with Jessica Gilker (at age 13/14), then at Arabian Horse Association shows in 2003. His talent for showing against non-Arabians has been undeniable and has competed and placed at pinnacle of open hunter pony competition at USEF Pony Finals in 2014.

One of the highest points of Knight’s open competition career is his 2014 USEF Pony Finals 19th place in
Green Medium Ponies out of 70 ponies with Anna Tootle. As far as I am aware, he was the only Arabian
bred pony in the Medium Green Pony division that year and the only placing registered Arabian bred
hunter. He placed 13th in Medium Green Pony Over Fences. You can see their video of the over fences
round at: https://youtu.be/njy9BU2iMJU


In 2014, Knight received Champion Medium Pony Hunter at GHJA Finals with Anna Tootle. He was also
2014 Reserve Champion High Scoring Horse of the ENTIRE GHJA Finals competition. In 2015, he
received 4th Place Local Medium Pony Hunter with his lessee at the time, Molly Segars. Knight also
received 2016 Schooling Pony Champion with Anna Tootle, which earned his name to be permanently
engraved on a perpetual trophy for the Georgia Hunter Jumper Association.

Knight not only has a long, successful show record in hunters, but has been successful in Training Level
Dressage and Combined Training. He is an ideal partner for all hunter paces and cross country rides as
well. He has been used for professional photo shoots for Stirrups Clothing Company and James Hill
Photography. He truly is an all-around athletic and versatile horse. Knight’s beauty, quality, intelligence,
work ethic, athleticism, movement, soundness, curiosity, willingness, trainability, and understanding of
and patience with less experienced riders or handlers are all traits that make him the hallmark of a well-
bred Arabian.
