KZN Breeders' Awards2011 KZN Breeders’ Awards

25 November 2011

The KZN Breeders Association hosted their annual Awards evening at Bellwood Cottages, Nottingham Road, on Friday 25 November.

Recently-elected Chairman, Koos de Klerk, addressed guests :

“This is a hard act to follow after the work by Warwick Render. I’d like to wish him every success and we’re sad he’s no longer on the board. I’m proud to be here, proud to be associated with this calibre of breeder here at the awards. So much work has gone into putting this event together so well done to the ladies involved, Ashley de Klerk and Linda Norval, for their outstanding work and the organisation that it took to put this event together.

Welcome to the Directors of Gold Circle and thank you for your support of the KZN Breeders and welcome to my fellow breeders.

We are here to honour the achievements of the breeders of thoroughbreds in KZN. How well did we do? If you look at the National Awards, we claimed seven of the 15 Breeder Awards. To those who don’t believe KZN breeds quality horses that can’t compete, don’t forget about the likes of National Champion Breeders, Summerhill Stud, Equus Breeder of the Year, St John Gray, champion Dancewiththedevil, Champion Stallion, the KZN-bred Jet Master, and International achiever Gypsy’s Warning. I think we can slap ourselves on the back. Quite firmly!

There are many initiatives currently taking place to try and get our export market going. There are export opportunities - South Africa’s market share is less than a quarter of a per cent of the international sales of horses and we’re looking to up this by more than 400%. If these initiatives are fruitful, we will be looking forward to a very bright future.

We would like to make the KZN province the breeders’ centre of choice.”
