Groot Verlange Horse Academy is situated at the foot of the mighty Magaliesberg, right next to an adjoining nature reserve, and under this umbrella is found the Harties Horse Academy Riding School. The riding academy has been open for the past 18 years.
Jeandré de Lange has been at the helm of the academy since 2010. She has completed the SANEE Instructor course, received NW Colours in Show Jumping and Dressage for 5 years in a row, and had the privilege of joining the Gauteng Show Jumping Team.
Our academy specialises in:
- Show Jumping Training
Students of the academy include high -, primary- and pre-school students. There is also the “Over 20’s Club” which consists of students between the ages of 20, up to the age of 55. Our students are sometimes 1st time riders, or “mature ladies” rediscovering their love for horse riding.
Lessons are done on an individual or group basis (maximum 2 riders per lesson). Lessons can be given on your horse, or on one of our dressage, equitation or show jumping horses.
Training shows are held at Grootverlange Horse Academy at least 3 times per year. Our students also compete in training and graded shows throughout Gauteng and on a national level.
Our aim is to create champions, to focus on building strong relationships between horse and rider, and to develop a high moral character.
Harties Horse Academy Riding School is open 6 days a week:
- Monday to Friday: 08:00 – 17:00
- Saturday: 08:00 – 13:00
Lessons are paid monthly, in advance.
