2020 was an unusual year for everyone due to Covid. It was a year of many challenges for the Horse Community as well Horse shows took on a whole new look, with masks, social distancing and measures to slow the spread of the virus. Kemper Knoll riders for Kemper Knoll students, horses, parents, trainers, workers and support personnel adapted, persevered and excelled. Below you will find a listing of their accomplishments. Congratulations all!

We belong to the Southwest Virginia Hunter Jumper Association, and some of the Kemper Knoll riders like to participate in the shows offered by this group. SWVHJA offers Year-End awards to the top 10 horses and riders in each of their Divisions. This year, Kemper Knoll horses and riders earned 16 Top Ten ribbons! Outstanding!
