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 club’s 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.

In March 2005, Kin Krest Saddle Club affiliated with the Dodge County Horsemen’s Association, Inc. (DCHA) 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 participate in many interesting events, including those sponsored by other affiliated clubs.

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.
