THE SPORTING HORSE (article first published : 2002-06-9)

Renowned authors Penny Swift and Janek Szymanowski are pleased to announce the publication of The Sporting Horse in Southern Africa, a vividly illustrated coffee table book celebrating Southern Africašs world-class equestrian culture.

Glossy, vibrant and packed with information, this 128 page hard-cover collectible offers a fresh, new look at Southern African horses and their riding heroes. It features more than 250 stunning full-colour pictures including some rare and previously unpublished photographs from the personal collections of some of South Africašs greatest horsemen.

With a legacy spanning over three centuries, The Sporting Horse in Southern Africa traces the beginnings of disciplines including showing, equitation, dressage, show-jumping, eventing, driving, endurance, hunting, racing, polo, polocrosse, gymkhana and vaulting. From Gonda Betrixšs show-jumping at the Olympic Games in Barcelona to Natalie Hobday at the World Games in Rome, this one-of-a-kind book showcases the achievements of top riders, equestrian sportsmen and equine heroes both in South Africa and abroad. Also included is a comprehensive chapter highlighting breeds which are unique to South Africa including the Nooitgedacht, Cape Boerperd and SA Vlaamperd.

From the annual endurance ride at Fauresmith to the finish line at the Cape Metropolitan Handicap, the publication was written and designed especially for South African horse lovers!

The Sporting Horse in Southern Africa is a limited edition collectoršs book and will not be reprinted once sold-out. It may be previewed online at www.sportinghorse.co.za and is available at leading bookstores and tack shops countrywide. Special orders may be placed directly by contacting The Sporting Horse, PO Box 26335, Hout Bay, 7872; fax: 021 790-7259; email: sportinghorse@yahoo.com.
