The mares (Beauti, Lady, and Fanfare) are now home on our 2.5 acre property in the Black Horse Run Equestrian Community. It's a been a long hard journey (and we aren't done yet!) but the fencing is finally up and we are no longer boarders!

We will the horses some time to settle in (it's an adjustment for all of us) but we look forward to soon offering McKnight Equine Services to the public from ...

Knight Equine Construction- Almost Clear!!!

Posted on April 22, 2013 at 11:55 PM Comments comments (0)

Construction has started back with the warmer (and dryer) weather!!! After some lack of communication with the foreman, it is going to take even longer than was originally planned to get all the work done (especially considering they have to go back and fix some mistakes).  

A few more trees have been taken down (and need to be removed) and they should be in the home stretch of grading the property (would have been done sooner if not having to clear more trees). They have star...

Construction Update!

Posted on February 22, 2013 at 10:35 AM Comments comments (0)

So it's been a few month since contruction started to bring the horses home to our property located on an equestrian community in North Raleigh. Construction has been rather intermittent and we are feeling a tad bit impatient . . . After about eight years, it will be super nice to no longer have to board our horses. The trees need to be hauled away (they missed a few trees too), the property still neededs to be graded, and they have yet too take down the playground but, the crew has cleared a...

Knight Equine Starts Construction!

Posted on December 2, 2012 at 12:15 AM Comments comments (0)

After about eight years of horse ownership, and eighteen years living in an equestrian community, we are finally going to clear and grade our 2.47 acres in preparation to bring our 'girls' home. Under normal conditions (and proper pasture management) two acres can support one horse (though the HOA allows one horse per half acre) but our property sits on a hill with a small creek at the bottom (requiring a 20ft buffer) and a 30ft easement lies on the edige of two side of our property for the n...

A Moment of Chivalry 02

Building on a Solid Foundation-

Today I couldn't help but think about starting horses and how important it is to have a solid foundation. It reminded me of this bible verse.

“Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock.  But anyone who hears my teaching ...

A Moment of Chivalry 01

Posted on February 13, 2012 at 4:05 PM Comments comments (0)

The other day I was talking to a fellow Horsewoman that made me realize something; In my quest to build a relationship with my horse(s) and take their feelings into consideration I put it even above my own enjoyment out of riding.

My palomino mare Beauti is for lack of a better word, 'ring sour.' take her out on the trails or don't bother is the way she prefers it. She is a cribber and over the years she has learned to retreat into herself, disengaging from even being loved turning so...
