Many of us travelled to Kurland for their first Eventing show, this was an incredible experience and it was truly fantastic to be a part of this epic event.  As many will see from the pictures the venue is incredible and we are blessed to have this as an addition to our eventing calendar.  With this in mind we would like to bring attention to fellow riders of the two events scheduled back to back for October .

George Riding Club is holding their annual Spring Show, this is a fantastic show and will run from the 3rd to the 8th October, the programme is as follows:

Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th October  – Eastern Cape Eventing Champs ( Grades to be confirmed )

Monday 5th October – Showing Classes

Tuesday 6th – Thursday 8th Will be the Show Jumping , Equitation ,and Dressage Classes ( Subject to Entries )

Now for those that supported this show last year, not only was it a huge amount of fun, but it also gave the Juniors the extra boost before champs and we are urging all to support this incredible show and this incredible club that work tirelessly for us all .

George always send out a list of great and affordable accommodation in the area.

Kurland is then scheduled for the 10th and 11th October and this show will be the WP Eventing Champs.  Grades to be confirmed .  Accommodation was also not hard to find and very affordable .

We are aware of the cost implications, but there are ways of sharing costs and making both shows viable.

Please feel free to contact Nikki Thurgood at Nikki has offered to try and assist with the logistics of travelling to both.

WONDERFUL weekend of Eventing at Kurland Polo Club this past weekend.

Here is hoping that all the photos being posted on Facebook will encourage riders from Up Country to attend the Western Cape Eventing Championships which will be taking place on the 10 +11 October!!!

Congratulations to all the Prize winners (listed below) the full results will be posted on the Results page once received.

Thank you to all the hardworking officials, organisers, Kurland staff and of course the fantastic sponsors that made the weekend such a success!!!




Latest update on Pony Measuring Saga.

In order that the process is seen to be fair, and after representation from a couple of Joburg parents, it has been agreed that the same vet who measured in Joburg (Sheelagh Higgerty ) must attend all the measuring sessions countrywide.

The only day that she can do the Cape Town Ponies is Saturday 20th June.

I have accordingly kept all the appointments I have so far given you, and moved them to Saturday. I have still to confirm both venues are available, but i will let you know.

I would like to remind you that while this is recommended, it is not compulsory.

As before, please contact Sharron Trueb-  to make an appointment
