Tanya Seymour represented South Africa in its first-ever dressage team that competed at World Equestrian Games in 2014 on her horse Ramoneur. Born in South Africa, she relocated to Australia in 2000 with her family. She has been based in Germany since 2007 and trains with Jonny Hilberath. She believes that riding should be light and harmonious, with the horse always happy and willing to perform. She credits her support team with maintaining her horses in the highest standard of care possible to ensure they can perform to their best ability.
“I believe in training in a way that the horses are able to understand what I want without being forced into anything. Riding should be light and harmonious and the horse needs to be happy and willing to perform.”
