APRIL 14 marked a very special milestone for the Kranshoek Riders (KHR), as they successfully completed their Basic Introduction Equine Management course.
The Five kids comprising KHR have been put through a challenging eight weeks of gruelling theory, as well as the practical and physical labour necessary when caring for horses. Now they can look forward to a bright Equestrian future.
Says KHR founder Lee Naude: "These five youngsters have everything it takes to become great riders, and their determination and commitment singled them out as winners. With limited to no resources, they meet every Saturday to learn about horses or have riding lessons."
"We would like to thank our sponsors and supporters, including the Caw family, Spur, Western Shoppe, the Kranshoek community, and their parents, friends and family without whom our achievements would not be possible."
