MEET OUR INSTRUCTORS WHO WILL GUIDE YOU ON YOUR EQUESTRIAN JOURNEY

Zita Bothma

Instructor

Zita’s love for horses started at the age of seven when she rode for the first time at a birthday party, and after 13 years, her passion hasn’t dwindled. As well as being an instructor who works with riders of all levels and abilities, she knows nothing rivals the feeling of improving in the saddle. Zita is also a competitive rider who regularly participates in shows – and she believes there is always something new to learn about horses and ponies.

Marzé du Plessis

Instructor

“Marzé’s journey into the world of horses began at the age of four, shaped by her upbringing in a small community. Without formal riding lessons, she learned the ropes herding cattle and camping, immersing herself in natural horsemanship and “cowboy culture”.

A pivotal moment was when she decided to volunteer at a riding school for special needs children in Lydenburg. Inspired by the profound impact of Equine-Assisted Learning,

she witnessed first-hand the transformative power of equine interaction, spurring her to pursue formal studies in Equine-Assisted Therapy.

Marzé is committed to fostering a deep understanding of horsemanship, aiming to make a difference one hoofprint at a time.
