History / Geskiedenis:


Established on 22nd January 1986 in the hart of SA Boerperd country, primarily to play a support role for the SA Boerperd Breeders Society in recruitment of new members, this club has grown to be a vital part of the Society in that it renders a valuable service to its members.

Currently consisting of 55 valued members, it is an organisation that promotes and markets the SA Boerperd in a dynamic and resourceful way. Members are divided into SA Boerperd breeders and non-breeders who enjoy the privileges of the club and joys of riding the most versatile horse in the country.

Pleasure rides are offered throughout the year and consist of three or one day experiences at very affordable rates. This is a festive occasion for members and their horses, where mostly the southern parts of Mpumalanga are explored in an adventurous manner. These outrides usually draw up to 60 riders from all walks of life and are a most enjoyable experience.

Members are regularly offered training on different aspects of horse breeding and/ or management in that the more experienced members share their knowledge and know-how with others. Those who are interested may join the breeder's tour at the beginning of the breeding season where every breeder in the region is visited at his /her horses scrutinised. This enables members to keep up a standard of excellence in that breeding objectives are established and maintained.

The club annually presents the Highveld show at the Ermelo show grounds where breeders and riders from all over the country can compete. This show includes the Mpumalanga regional championships for SA Boerperde as well as an open division where other breeds may participate.

An annual production sale of SA Boerperde is also held in July together with the Eastern Transvaal Bull and Ram auction which is the biggest of its kind in the Southern hemisphere where breeders have the chance to market their stock. Horses are scrutinised beforehand by the club, which ensures that only the best quality is offered for sale.

These are extremely exciting times since the establishment of the club and the breed as a whole. This means that a dynamic organisation such as the Highveld SA Boerperd club has a vital role to play in the preservation of our heritage, the SA Boerperd. This club is therefore an exclusive organisation in that only dynamic people with an above average love and respect for horses in general is allowed to join.

For further information on how to become part of the Highveld SA Boerperd family and experience the joys of the SA Boerperd, the Management may be contacted.

 

Hoëveld SA Boerperd - Jaarverslag 2013


Nog ‘n suksesvolle Boerperd jaar is verby en mens moet sê dit bly ‘n voorreg om met die perde en die Boerperdmense te werk en te skou.

PLESIERRIT TE LEEUPAN DAM
Die Mpumalanga klub het ‘n plesierrit gehou in Desember 2014 te Leeupan. Dit was baie lekker en daar was ongeveer 30 ruiters. Soggens het almal op die plaas gaan uitry en na die rit het almal met die perde in Leeupandam gaan swem. In die middae is die kinders op ‘n boot vermaak en natuurlik het almal lekker om die kampvuur gekuier elke aand.

Ons beplan die 2015 plesierrit op Badplaas 11-15 Desember.

STREEKSKAMPIOENSKAPPE 2015
Mpumalanga en Natal het hierdie jaar saam die Transnatal Skou aangebied op Standerton 11-14 Mei 2015. Daar was 120 perde op die skou. Die beoorde- laars was Tradisioneel Lomon Tereblanche en Universeel Christopher Hammond.

Tydens die skou het die jeugraad die jeug vermaak met prettige aktiwiteite.
Die skou was ‘n groot sukses, alhoewel dit finansieël nie die moeite werd was nie, a.g.v. hoë reperasiekostes aan die skougrond en duur stalfooie.

Ons beoog om 2016 se streekskou in die Aprilvakansie weer op Ermelo se skougronde te hou.

KURSUS OOR UNIVERSELE RYSTYL EN RUITERKUNS
Christopher Hammond het die kursus aangebied en daar was ongeveer 20 ruiters wat die kursus bygewoon het.

Ons sien uit na ‘n opwindende jaar wat voorlê!

Groete
