The Durban Shongweni Club provides full livery for up to 50 horses and is one of the most sought after yards in the area.

Current equine residents range from happy hacks through horses whose owners practice Parelli natural horsemanship to horses that compete at national level. There is a great “family” spirit amongst the stablers and fund raisers and social events are held frequently.

The yard is expertly managed by Hetty Blake who brings a wealth of equine management experience to the Club and is ably assisted by an Induna, Gorman, and 14 grooms. The stables run to a strict routine and horses are in large grassy paddocks for up to 5 hours a day.

Facilities for stablers include access to 3 sand dressage arenas, an all-weather practice jumping arena, two lunge rings, an open grass area and direct access to the sugar cane (permits required). Being the premier show venue in KwaZulu-Natal, the club is it a very convenient base for competitive riders. It also provides an opportunity for horses to become accustomed and de-sensitized to the many activities around the club.

For current livery rates and conditions, please contact the livery manager.

It is a requirement that stablers are fully paid up members of the club in good standing.
