Welcome to the virtual home of McKnight Equestrian Services. In addition to offering instruction in Basic Horsemanship & Recreational Riding we are working towards providing various Equine Assisted Activities in the future, including Therapeutic Riding.
We are also in the process of building our own Knabstrupper broodmare band.
McKnight Equestrian Services is currently located within a 90 acre boarding facility in Stem, NC. An easy distance from North Raleigh, Durham, Oxford, and Wake Forest.
Lessons & Instruction
We are offering Basic Horsemanship and Recreational Riding lessons for beginners and return riders. Our instruction focus is on safety, communication, use of proper aids, and development of a balanced seat. Instruction incorporates horse & rider biomechanics as well as various natural horsemanship and classical dressage philosophies.
Knabstruppers of Knight Equine
We are also building a broodmare band of Mainbook Knabstrupper (KNN & RPSI) that we will be offering to the public through our Custom Foal Program in an effort to preserve this rare breed. We will on occasion have a few Knabbies already on the ground for sale, but in order to provide more options for buyers and to ensure that our foals having loving homes waiting for them once they've hit the ground, Custom Foals (in-utero breeding options) are the basis of our breeding program. As our herd grows, many will be available for lease to competitive riders.
