RIDING HIGH: Pictured are, at back from left, Spur manager Gwan Markus, rider Nicole Jacobs (95%), Jenny Pope of Bitou Horse Welfare, Spur's Louis de Lange, rider Lana Williams (88%), volunteer parent Elvira Jacobs, and KHR founder Lee Naude, with riders Jared Jansen (93%), John Williams (68%) and Roxzaan Johnson (70%) in front.

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."

Since our devastating fire crises here on the Garden Route in June 2017, we had the privilege to help to temporary relocate some of the horses affected until some of the fencing and grazing could be restored.

We started working with the Kranshoek horse Owners in Plettenberg Bay on a program to help care for their horses, and exploring the vast number of opportunities that come from the benefits that lie in their being horse Owners.

The horse Owners and their next generation of avid horse lovers, have a proud horse heritage passed on in Griqua culture, and welcomed an opportunity to learn more about the opportunities available within the amazing world of equestrian, sport and career opportunities, previously perceived as elitist.

Africa Hoofprint Foundation’s vision is to grow our industry by inviting fresh interest into our wonderful horse world and opening doors - this is only the beginning of embarking on a journey with so many possibilities, promoting the advantages horses hold for humans, with the spinoff of empowerment and leadership development, which naturally comes with being around horses.

We would like to thank, FOOTSTEPS FOUNDATION, JUMPSTARTER and EQUINE SA for helping us to make these children’s dreams come true and although we have a long way to go, we trust that this is only the beginning of great things for these youngsters – so watch this space!

Special thanks to all the role players for their part in making South African history when they invited 4 of our youngsters to participate in their 1st Training Show ever, on Sunday 12 November 2017.

We need lots of support and will appreciate any support offered, so if you would like to get involved or want to make a contribution, then please follow the links to see what the greatest needs are to further these developments in Kranshoek.
