Courtney Webber and her lovely imported stallion, Lucky Time.This very young and talented rider is going to be a combination to watch.

The casual and easy style of THE SINGING COWBOY had the crowds enthralled at the Horse and Wine Festival. At the end of the show children flocked to get a closer look at our Western legend.

Panama hats, art, visit the vintage cars, kiddies to ride the swings, teens the mechanical bull and much more…Grab something to eat from the many delightful stalls, a glass of wine from one of the wine estates, and then back to being mesmerised by The Ring Master, Equi Dance and the Spanish Tango, Cable Stitc Jumping, Parade of Horse of the World, Quarter Horse and Arab Display, Gymnastics, DogzCool, and finally The Singing Cowboy and Elvis. Certainly something for everyone! The Singing Cowboy, back by popular demand for the second year running, this time on his beautiful black stallion, had the crowds in awe as his melodious voice filtered across the night sky, and his horse performed effortlessly underneath him, bowing, rearing, passaging and lying down – such skill and grace. At the end the crowds flocked into the arena to touch this beautiful animal as he stood motionless and accepted their praise!

Elvis arrived in true Shongweni Club style on the back of the tractor and trailer with fairy lights ablaze singing- “Teddy Bear “- his glittering white suit dazzling the crowds sitting on the bank.When he joined the throngs of fans on the banks of the Club House Patio, the children saw the chance to jump on the trailer and hitch a ride around the arena –Wow what fun they had while Mum and Dad were Rocking Around the Clock with Elvis! This event is a must for everyone next year! Don’t miss the LAND ROVER DURBAN HORSE AND WINE FESTIVAL. Sunday saw the conclusion of the Dressage SA Challenge which is a National Competition. Judges Sylvia Brukner from Cape Town and Sue Horne from Gauteng, commenced their judicial duties at 8am and were kept busy through until 4pm in the afternoon. The wind gusted throughout the course of the day but some high quality performances where still seen. Issue 19 SPORTING HORSE
