Gretha Ferreira-Veldman is one of our South African dressage riders riding internationally under the trainership of Bennett Conn in Germany. She sourced her Grand Prix horse Le Beau in 2015. She fully believes that the correct method to train a horse is through kindness and empathy, with the horse’s welfare being top priority at all times. In her limited spare time she enjoys make-up artistry and fashion, even if it has to be done in her riding clothes!
“I strongly believe that going out of your way to create the perfect environment for the horse, not just when riding them, but everything concerning them all 24 hours of the day, helps to form a stronger bond with the horse and will pay off in the arena.”
