Hobby Horse Hill Challenge Trophy

Donated in 1967, this is the oldest of the Perpetual Trophies, originated prior to the formation of ESDA. Farm owner, Lazelle Knocke and her husband held a large annual show at their farm, Hobby Horse Hill, to benefit the Family Nursing Service. In 1969, Mr. Knocke was involved in the formation of the Eastern States Dressage Association (ESDA,) currently ESDCTA, one of the first three dressage clubs in the United States. Other achievements include contribution to the development of the USDF, teaching, organizing competitions, judging dressage, writing articles, and development of the “L” graduate program.
