We would like to remind all our members once again that the WELFARE of our horses are of utmost importance, in fact, it is THE most important. Mistreatment in or out of the showring, will NOT be tolerated nor inhumane training methods. Spot checks will be done and dealt with.
It should be the objective of each person, in which ever way he be involved with Saddlebred horses, to promote the well being of Saddlebred in general and to do whatever is required to make provision for retired Saddlebred horses.
Wishing the very best to both the Junior and Senior Protea teams as they prepare for the International Saddle Seat Invitational against teams from the USA this upcoming week.

2020 SA Saddlebred National Championships - World's Open Air Saddlebred Championship Show - BLOEMFONTEIN 20 to 25 April 2020
This event will represent the best that the South African bloodstock has to offer and will once again be true to the promise of excitement and entertainment unique to the Saddlebred breed.
A world class event not to be missed!
Born on Christmas night out of the grey mare, Belle of San Francisco, and sired by Hell of a Nite. Trained by Andre la Conte – his career took him to Europe and the UK. He returned to South Africa with Andre as a seven year old and started competing very successfully locally.
He is a true charmer and to date has always been placed in the top three in a FEI-dressage competition! He has gained a keen fan club – his pleasant disposition, good looks and ease of handling are a tribute to his breed!
