Horse of the Year 2018



What great fun and excitement we had at HOY this year!!!
We left for KPC early on Sunday morning in order to get all he horses there with ample time for them to settle in and rest out before the show started on Monday morning.
We were so blessed with open roads and safe travels.
Our horses were all very unsure of why they were bathed so regularly and then turned out and trimmed to perfection.
The excitement culminated in what was a truly memorable day.

Samantha Ellis and Super Natural

They competed in the Show riding classes of both the SA Sport Horses and General Breeds. They took a third place on the SASHF class and sure looked stunning!! Both of them were able to grow so much from this experience. Great fun was had and big smiles all round.

Super Natural and Adam Zwane

Competed in the stallions class and placed second.

Super Natural and Goodman Sbanda

Competed in te Coloured Stallions class and took a first place.

Sookie Lynn and Goodman Sbanda

They competed in the Mares 3yrs and older category as well as Coloured mares over 3 yrs. Sookie took a second place and looked fantastic and so well behaved.

Symphony and Adam Zwane

This being their third HOY together, this team took it in their stride and won the Coloured mares over 3yrs class, placed third in the Mares 3yrs and older class and took Champion Coloured SA Sporthorse.

Joepie and Megan Zofka

Competed in the Stallions over 3yrs and placed third. Unfortunately Joepie reared and injured his handler, Megan, shortly after this class and had to be handled by a different handler for the second class and also had to withdraw from the ridden classes as Megan is his rider.

Joepie and Adam Zwane

Competed in the coloured stallions class and placed third.

Qayla and Goodman Sbanda

Placed second in their Coloured fillies under 3yrs class.

Qayla and Goodman

Competed in the Fillies 2-3yr old and placed second. This was Qayla’s first ever show and she behaved herself very well considering.

Serenade and Colett Janse v Rensburg

Took first place in the Yearlings 1-2yr class. Our blue eyed girl was very well behaved despite all the scary stuff going on in the arena.

Sherah and Adam Zwane

Who competed in the yearlings class as well, was a little less well behaved than her best friend Serenade. Despite her antics, she placed second in a class of four. She also then went on to win the Coloured fillies under 3yr class.

Sugar & Spice and Goodman Sbanda

She was such a sweetheart and won both her classes for Fillies 2-3yrs as well as Friesian Sporthorses under three. She was also Friesian Sporthorse Champion and Champion SASHF Youngstock. I am very excited about the future of this magnificent girl.

Juventas and Colett Janse v Rensburg

This big girl did really well and was so well behaved. She took third place fir Coloured mares over 3yrs. Well done!!
