Knudtson competes in Pony of America National Congress Show
Megan Knudtson, an upcoming sophomore at Lake Mills Community School, recently competed in the 2019 POA (Pony of America) National Congress Show in Tulsa, Okla., July 13-19, with her horse, Jackson. She was awarded the National Champion Bareback entry in the 14-18 Girls bracket and Reserve Champion in the Hunter Under Saddle 14-18 Girls bracket.
Megan also earned top four placings in Huntseat Equitation 14-16 Girls, Halter 4 and older Geldings, and Ranch Riding 14-18. She was in the top 10 placings for Senior Hunter Under Saddle 18 and under, Halter Youth Geldings, and Horsemanship 14-18 Girls with each class having 20-40 entries each.
Knudtson has competed twice in Winona, Minn., and also in Iowa Falls and Cedar Rapids this past spring and summer. She is looking forward to three more shows, before her season ends in October.
POA’s have evolved into one of the major equine breeds in the country with their infusion of some of the finest bloodlines that the Quarter Horse and Appaloosa breeds have to offer. Megan trains with Megan Hansen of Hansen Performance Horses outside of Joice.
Megan is the daughter of Don and Nancy Knudtson, Lake Mills.
