History of Kin Krest Saddle Club

Kin Krest Saddle Club (KKSC) was organized in January 1976 when approximately 20 people gathered around the fireplace in the Kinateder living room and set the goals and expectations of this new club. The original members were boarders at Kin Krest Farm or friends of the Fred Kinateder family. For many years the meetings, shows and most of the clubís activities were held at Kin Krest Farm in Germantown owned by the Kinateder family. Fred passed away in April 2005, leaving the Kin Krest Saddle club as his ongoing legacy.

Soon after KKSC was formed, the Club joined the Saddle Club association. After SWSCA folded, the Kin Krest Saddle Club joined the Northern Kettle Moraine Horsemanís Association (NKMHA) which folded in late 2004.

In March 2005, Kin Krest Saddle Club affiliated with the Dodge County Horsemen's Association, Inc. to provide even more opportunities for Kin Krest members to participate in horse-related events. DCHA sponsors clinics, shows, charity auctions, and other events and includes several other saddle clubs in their membership. With membership in DCHA, Kin Krest members can look forward to participating in many interesting events sponsored by other affiliated clubs as well.

Over the years, the Kin Krest Saddle Club has engaged in many professional, charitable, and social activities. While headquartered at the Kin Krest Farm, the Saddle Club formed a horse drill team which met once a month during the summer season. KKSC also has been involved in many parades and often took First Place in the West Allis Western Days Parade competition. Unfortunately, Western Days is no more.

Activities

Kin Krest Saddle Club sponsors one Open Horse Show each year and puts on an annual Fun Show for members and friends. Other activities may include trail rides, campouts, horse-related clinics, bowling parties, craft and rummage roundups, hayrides, fish fries, pig roasts, pool parties, , and parties for St. Patrick's Day, Valentine's Day, and Christmas.

Meetings

Meetings are held at 7:00 p.m. on the second Monday of each month, usually at Doman's (formerly Heidel;'s) in Jackson, WI, and often include guest speakers, veterinarian lectures, and presentations. Come early and enjoy a beverage and a bite to eat with other KKSC members before the meeting!

Membership

The versatility of Kin Krest Saddle Club is perhaps what draws many members to the Club. The fellowship and willingness to work together and participate in activities keeps it a strong and growing Club. As club member interests change and expand, so does the direction of Kin Krest Saddle Club. And as always, new members are definitely welcome!
