I have been running the above horse trail riding business since 1990, but have been a competitive rider since an early age. I started Wine Valley Horse Trails in the Stellenbosch area, and then moved to my present location in 1998.
I am a qualified SANEF and BHS instructor and my expertise covers most horse activities, including show jumping, eventing, endurance riding, horse racing, polo cross, polo driving and film work. I have been involved with horses for the past 28 years and have run my own yard of over a 180 horses for the past 15 years.
I have competed in most equestrian sports receiving my WP colours for show jumping and eventing and SA colours for dressage.
I have been involved in the film industry for the past 8 years and have worked on a number of features and commercials. (See attachment.) I have worked with some of the top trainers in the world including Mario Luraschi (France), Heath Harris (Australia) and Sled Renolds and Bobby Lovegrin (States)
I have my own string of liberty and film horses that I supply for the South African Film and Commercial Industry. These include rearing horses under saddle and free, falling horses, carriage horses etc
I was one of the head wranglers on the movie Racing Stripes and did a lot of work with the Zebra’s as well as training them to ride. I was also the veterinary nurse on that production as well as most productions shot in this country and Namibia.
I have a sound knowledge of horses and movement documentations into the various countries and or area’s as I have been involved with this over the past few years.
I also do specialised training of problematic horses for the racing industry and travel the country with this.
I trust that you will find all in order and look forward to hearing from you.
