Molly Knott is a lifelong equestrian, a talented and savvy entrepreneur whose passion for life and work springs from her love of the horse.

Having graduated Stanford in 2003 with an MA in Education Policy, Molly was working at the top of her profession; but in 2009, in search of her passion, she left that world and began telling stories of saddles and tack – and she has never looked back.


In those very early days of blogging, she founded and developed her blog, Dappled Grey, into a popular first-of-its-kind online guide to the English equestrian lifestyle. She has recently brought her effectiveness in story-based marketing, her innate creative capacity, and her expertise in communications and social media, along with her curating experience, to a new position as editor of The Scout Guide Equestrian, an elegant national publication that advocates for local businesses involved in the equestrian lifestyle. TSG Equestrian Volume 1 launched in January 2016, and will be complemented by a sophisticated and strategic online presence. In addition, there are more than 60 City Guides that feature must-have trends and items indigenous to the locale.
