Equestrian extraordinaire Ryan Martin, a gr. 9 learner of the Goudveld-Hoërskool, is the South African 80 cm show jumping champion and 70 cm working hunter champion.

He clinched these titles on the backs of his horses Kadush and Callaho Larina.

On his third horse, Volmoed Astrant, he narrowly missed out on claiming a third national title.

The South African National Schools Equestrian Association’s (Sanesa) national championships were hosted at Kyalami Park in Midrand from 4 to 9 October.

Ryan competed in 11 classes, and counted among the six top performers in eight of these.

  • In addition to being named victor ludorum for the Free State, he also received various provincial accolades at Sanesa Free State’s prize-giving: best performance in the working hunter category (first); ) best performance in the show jumping category (first); ) best performance in equitation (second); and) best performance in dressage freestyle (second).

Tené Martin, Ryan’s sister and a gr. 5 learner of the Welkom-Volkskool, does not need to play second fiddle to her older brother’s accomplishments.

Although she has Asperger syndrome, she is an avid and competitive equestrian.

Tené and her horse Storm Rider placed first in the working riding and performance riding categories. She also obtained a teams’ first place in both events.

Ryan and Tené are students at the BRS Equestrian Club, and are coached by Belinda Basson.
