Pierre de Wit completed the World Young Rider Championship in Abu Dhabi and obtained the 24th place on his Australian horse Otis TE.  This is wonderful news and we wish to congratulate him on this performance.

Dear Members

Pierre de Wit will be participating at the Young Rider World Championship in Abu Dhabi on 10 December.  Attached is a picture of him and his horse Otis TE.  Lientjie, his mom, will be updating us regarding the ride.  We wish him the best for the ride.

Geagte Lede

Die Jongruiter W�reld Kampioenskappe vind Desember in Abu Dhabi plaas.  Die afstand is oor 120km en 'n ruiter moet in kombinasie met sy perd kwalifiseer.  Aangesien dit nie moontlik is vir ons ruiters om hul perde uit te neem nie sal 'n ruiter in  Europa of een van die ander lande moet kwalifiseer. 

Indien daar ruiters is wat graag hierdie kwalifikasie vir die span wil aangaan kan hulle my kontak. NERA sal graag 'n span wil inskrywe vir hierdie kampioenskappe.   Perde en ritte moet self gere�l word in Europa of waar dit beskikbaar is.

The Young Rider World Championship will be taking place in Abu Dhabi in December 2011.  Riders and horses should qualify in combination.  As it is not possible to take horses from Namibia for this ride, riders will have to qualify in Europe or elsewhere.  If anyone is prepared to do so and wish to be nominated for the Namibian team, please contact me.

Horses and rides for qualifying will have to be organized by the rider.

Weereens geluk aan ons ruiters wat gisteraand aan die Sport Awards deelgeneem het.

Collen Tjandja is aangewys as die "Most Improved Sportsman of the Year" 

Veels geluk aan Collen.

Collen Tjandja received the award for the "Most Improved Sportsman of the Year" at the awards ceremony of the Sports Commission last night.

Congratulations to Collen.


Dear Members

The following decisions were taken at the AGM in Walvis Bay

-  The Financial Statements of NERA will be mailed to all members after being approved by


-  It was decided that each OC of a ride can decide whether they want to give a discount to

   riders who enter more than 4 horses for a ride.

-  Clubs should adhere to the colors of the loops as they have always been.

-  Team members riding for the National Team will be informed before the start of

    competition whether they are in the team of the day or not.

-  In principle it was decided that the Walvis Bay ride will stay in Walvis Bay and not

   move to Swakopmund.

-  The 2 x 30km rides will remain.  For any ride shorter than 40km a rider does not have to

    be a member of a club, no vaccinations are required for the horse and no books are

    required.  The rider will however pay the entry fee of the day and adhere to the rules of

    NERA.  This is done to make the sport more accessible for new riders.

The problem with vaccinations that have to be done by a veterinarian will be taken up with the Veterinary Council of Namibia, by Mike to verify whether a medical practitioner may sign off the vaccination. 


Geagte Lede 

Die finaliste vir die Sport Award toekennings is gister aangekondig. Veels geluk aan hulle almal.   Die volgende persone is op die lys:

We have a great time here in Lexington, Kentucky.

The weather is fine and the environs are beautiful.

The Americans call Lexington the HORSE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD...typical America, isn't it?

Since stabling at the horse park would have been in quite small stables, the girls rather chose to 

camp with their horses about 2 miles away from the Kentucky Horse Park at a farm.

They got big paddocks there  and a barn for their horses. Horses are doing fine, fit and full of life.

Today there was a 'training session' for  'us unexperienced grooms'.

The 3 girls have fixed and polished their riding gear and clothing.


They are quite chilled and no one is nervous as yet.


Gisela Voigts

Our 3 WEG girls are on their way to Kentucky with their horses.  The horses may go into the venue only on the 24th.  Leon Harmse will be arriving in Kentucky tomorrow.  He will be one of Anna's grooms during the ride.  The horses will be stabled near the venue until the 24th.  The ride is on Sunday 26 September.  We wish them all well and trust that they will finish the 160km.  Please keep them in your prayers.

Please check out the blog below.   Nog iets oor ons meisies in Kentucky

Geagte Lede
Wat 'n wonderlike getuigskrif vir een van ons groot ruiters, Armin van Biljon.  Op 18 Julie vind daar 'n rit in Mecklenburg Duitsland plaas met die naam "Armin's Race"  Armin gaan ook self daar deelneem.  Ons wens hom alle sukses toe.  Dankie Armin vir jou bydrae tot uithouritte in Namibie.

On 18 July 2010 a special ride is taking place in Mecklenburg Germany, called  Armin's Race.  Armin van Biljon is still one of the great endurance riders of Namibia and this is a wonderful tribute.  Hy will be riding in Armin's Race and we wish him the best of luck.
