Ingrid Knippelmeyer is the trainer and owner of Blue Spring Farm. At eight years old she began weekly hunt seat riding lessons at Nimrod Farm in Oconomowoc, WI.  Soon she was allowed to ride the farmís sale horses for extra riding. She got her first horse when she was 12 years old and showed at local B rated shows and A rated shows in WI, IL, MI, MN, IN and IA. With two different horses she successfully showed throughout her junior years. 

 

In 1989, she started breeding her own mares and breaking the young stock for resale.  She gradually purchased more mares for breeding and had 4-5 foals per year. In 1998 a farm in Menomonee Falls, WI became available for lease and is now the current home of Blue Spring Farm. That allowed her more room for mares and foals and an indoor arena for breaking them. 

 

With many people expressing interest in riding lessons, Ingrid gradually started buying school horses.  She now has 10 school horses that help with 90-100 lessons per week. During the summer months she takes 6-8 riders to the local B rated shows in Wisconsin and Illinois.

 

In 2010, she began working with the School District of Menomonee Falls and the Menomonee Falls Community Education and Recreation Department with the Equestrian Program.  The program has been a great success!  She looks forward to more enthusiastic new riders in the years to come.

 

Marquette University started their Equestrian Club with Blue Spring Farm in 2013. Their riders enjoyed the friendly atmosphere, the organized lesson program and the new, modern facility.

 

Ingrid loves working with students of all ages and abilities, helping them improve their riding skills and knowledge of the horse, while providing an environment that is relaxing and fun.
