Dr Bronwyn Desfontaines and her horse Carter were selected for the SA Shield team at the African Shield eventing competition and competed at Shongweni, KZN in September 2019. Here is what she has to say about it:
“Carter is my lucky packet pony 😉 because his Dam got herself knocked up by a Fresian. Wouldn’t have been my first choice but turns out she knew better! I started eventing him last year, after a 15 year break for me. It’s great to be doing it again and feel that it is one of the greatest equestrian sports there is as it requires a special bond between horse and rider to get through a cross country course! We were fortunate enough to have been selected for the SA Shield team at the recent African Shield at DSC in which we narrowly got beaten by Namibia in the team event and we came third individually. Looking forward to the future with this special character and grateful to have SEH supporting us!
