Some of South Africa, Namibia and Zimbabwe’s best show-jumpers will descend on the Shongweni Club Showgrounds for The Shongweni Festival which takes place from August 8 to 12, 2018.

Show-jumping is a sport where men and women of various ages all compete on the same level.  Spectators can look forward to plenty of adrenalin-filled action as well as high glamour as competitors include the likes of ex Miss South Africa, Heather Mostert, (nee Hamilton, of Hillcrest), who recently stood out at the celebration of the 60th Miss SA contest.

Another beautiful competitor and accomplished sportswoman is Jodi Pieters (from Drummond), who has climbed Mount Everest and excelled in the Iron Man contest.

The event, which runs over Women’s Day on August 9, offers great outdoor entertainment, with plenty of thrills and spills. Family activities include clothing, food and beverage stalls, licensed restaurant, kiddies play area and the opportunities to test drive the Land Rover & Jaguar model line-up, including the All New Discovery!

Entrance to the event is free of charge.
