Would love to adopt a rescue donkey (or two). I have a small holding in Dargle. There is horse stables and we have some lovely green fields they could graze on. They would be well looked after and loved.

HORSE SHOW HELD FOR CHARITY A GREAT SUCCESS

Wenton Greys Affiliated Charity Show Jumping event was held at Wenton Greys Stables in Summerveld, on the 27th & 28th April in aid of The Coastal Horse Care Unit.

This is the second year that Dr Richard Venniker, Laura Smith and their Team have held this event in aid of Horse Welfare.

The show was a great success with the support from sponsors such as:  Scientific Sports Nutrition, Marriot, Equis Veterinary Practice, Industrial Scrap Metal, MSM, Thelwells Equestrian Centre, Penny Swart Concepts, Summerveld Veterinary Hospital, Dargle Poles and Treating, Hillcrest Private Hospital, Wenton Greys, SA Bio Medical & DN Photography and show jumping competitors who entered to make this day the huge success it was. Some riders came from as far as Pietermaritzburg, Pennington and Mount Edgecombe – which showed their commitment to such a good cause.

One of the highlights of the day was a parade of some of the CHCU rescued horses.  People at the event commented that the work being done by the CHCU was great and they never knew that rescued horses could look so good. CHCU had pictures before when they were rescued and after rehabilitation,  of some of the rescued horses.

 Gill Olmesdahl chairperson of The Coastal Horse Care Unit, said that the atmosphere at the show was brilliant. It was so wonderful to see people involved in the sport giving so much back to help less fortunate horses.  Gill was really moved that some of the prize winners even donated their prize money back to the CHCU.  She said the parade of some of our rescued horses was well received, and her only hope is that these special rescued horses find forever homes and become future champions for their new adoptive owners. Gill said she hopes this annual event will continue to get the support from all involved in the sport.

You can visit the rescue farm in Cato Ridge on Wednesday, Friday and Saturdays from 9am -4pm
