Hobby Horse Hill Challenge Trophy

This is the oldest Perpetual Trophy. Lazelle Knocke and her husband Frederick, owners of Hobby Horse Hill Farm, held a large annual show to benefit the Family Nursing Service, a provider of healthcare to families in need. In 1969, Frederick Knocke helped to form the Eastern States Dressage Association (ESDA), one of the first three dressage clubs in the United States.  ESDA is currently known as the Eastern States Dressage and Combined Training Association (ESDCTA). Well known in the horse world, Lazelle Knocke’s other achievements include contribution to the development of the USDF, teaching, organizing competitions, judging dressage, writing articles, and development of the “L” graduate program.  She and her partner, Dom Perignon, were the first members of the Centurion Club, horse and rider combined ages equal 100 years and still able to compete.
