Welcome to Equestrian.co.za!
The South African Equestrian Community is vast and spread out all over the Internet. Other information available is just as vast and sometimes South African information can get lost and forgotten. We'll bring it all together and make it available in one central library because there's some good stuff out there and sometimes it's hard to find because it could be anywhere and it just takes so long.
By combining the information, we can provide a good base to start from for horse and rider training available in South Africa.
Join us on the journey ahead.
Horse Riding and Training
It's not easy to ride a horse and if you learn what you need you will find horseback riding to be a fantastic way to spend your time.
If you're thinking of horses as a sport, it is a very demanding sport, not just for the horse, you have control of an animal that has it's own mind and can weigh between 300 and 1000 KG or more, that's a ton of muscle! This does depend on the kind of horse you want to learn more about and what type of riding you want to do. If you're looking to enter competitions and shows, you will find the standard is very high, bring on your game!
We will be adding info on many of the horse breeds in South Africa as well as the different disciplines available here. We can't ignore what happens internationally either, there are many proficient trainers and riders all over our planet that we can learn heaps from.
