If you're not growing, you're dying...
Well 2017 has been absolutely manic and it's been a huge year of growth. My previous blog was about my work with NZ Barbarian Polocrosse Team, followed by my trip to South Africa with Swanson Racing to select their next crop of racehorses from The National 2yo sale.
After that we welcomed an exciting new sponsor in Kinetic Bands-eu which is a great adjunct to our rider performance training programmes. The bands are strapped around the knees and assist with strengthening the glutes and improving lumbar stability and glute control during training. Riders notoriously have a weak posterior chain associated with lack of strength training and long hours spent in the saddle, and we are thrilled to be associates of Kinetic Bands-eu.
Shortly after that, we got flown up to Zambia in September for four days where we conducted multiple rider assessments and horse physio sessions on some of their leading Equestrian partnerships, mostly within Showjumping. It was an incredible trip and we loved every second! During our stay their, our sponsored rider Andrew Philip competed in his first International CDI** with Zeus in South Africa before flying home to Zim to win the Tri-Nations FEI Elementary test on Coeur!!
After an incredible 2016, with the Pan African Symposium and our work in the USA, it's been fantastic being able to maintain our global growth in the Industry and we still have 3 months left of 2017!
We have also made the massive decision to move back to the UK in January 2018. While our hearts are somewhat in tune to beating to an African Drum, we made the decision based on economical and political unrest as well as the desire to further our careers in the heart of Equestrian High Performance <3
It comes with Bittersweet emotions, of things we'll miss and things we're excited to experience, and we are so grateful to our extensive client base for their unwavering support! We will certainly be back intermittently to work with our friends at Swanson Racing, so be sure to keep in touch with us regarding home visits and news from GB!
