S.A. Champs in KZN – A post from the parents. Thank you 🤗

The South African Youth Champs are dedicated to young riders from around the country and is the final show for the year. Sunny Park Stables was represented by 10 riders & 12 horses

The Shongweni show was a huge success and made possible by the dedication of coach Nicola Sime-Riley and her right-hand man Musa Maluleke.

Sunny Park stables offer professional lessons throughout the year with expert guidance from coach Nicola, who has won every possible South African accolade available.

Musa plays an integral part in managing shows, and with multiple classes running at the same time, he is always there in the warm-up arena ensuring everyone is ready for their events.

From basic groundwork to stretching the rider and horse’s ability in the arena, in preparation for all the events during the year, building up to the Youth Champs, and having the kids at your stable yard achieve so much… This is how you as a leader, coach, champion and mum walk away from a prestigious event with pride.

As parents, we watch in awe as our children navigate through all these lessons and events during the year.

You teach our children a skill, love and a strong bond with these majestic horses and ponies that allow us to ride them. BUT most importantly you teach them perseverance and commitment that will serve them well into the future…

Nicola, Musa and the extended Sunny Park team, thank you for your dedication, love and commitment to our ponies, horses and children.
