ANOTHER SOLID PERFORMANCE
BY SOUTH AFRICAN SHOW JUMPING
IN THE NISSAN WINTER CLASSIC
By Caroline Malan / Photos by T&B Images outh African Show Jumping can be proud of yet another five day event that was filled with horsemanship of the highest order with testing tracks, perfect conditions, fantastic support and all round entertainment.
Shongweni, Durban was the place to be from 12 to 16 June, with the Nissan Winter Classic building up to the championship class on Monday afternoon, which was to be the second leg of the South African World Cup Qualifier.
As was the case every day, Saturday’s action was non-stop, with Jeanne Engela winning the 1.50m Riders Grand Prix Tour. “It’s always great to come to Shongweni with fantastic facilities and a welcoming sense of community. International course builder Andreas Holman (Germany) is a personal favourite of mine and he asked just the right questions today. I am over the moon with my mare Chanel as after a long break we finally feel back on form. A big thanks to all the sponsors, organisers and of course my fabulous trainer, Dominey Alexander.”
