She's gorgeous! I love the first pic - she looks pretty nimble for a big girl. Is she crossed with thoroughbred, or warmblood?

(Oh, and it's good to see another dressage fan ;) )

Wow, she is BEAUTIFUL!! :eek: Please post more photos soon! :D

WoW! So pretty! I love her! What is she crossed with? To me, she doesn't look at all like a clydesdale, the way she moves(I think its because she has no feathering) but i LOVE HER! wow only 5? So pretty! You need to post more pictures soon!

Thanks everyone! :D She is so special too me.

Amanda is crossed with a Boerperd and is about 16.3hh though I'm not sure of her exact hight, she has grown since those photos were taken in March! Will definately post more soon.

The braids were done by a proffesional (I cant plait like that, wish I could)*sigh* and were held by thread (needle and thread method).

Wow she's gorgeous! She is HUGE!:eek:

I love seeing big horses being ridden so nicley. There was a pure Clyd at my old barn who used to do dressage it was so nice to watch.

Oh wow, I've only ever seen Boerperds in books. I'd love to see South Africa someday (maybe whilst riding a boerperd ;) ).

05-22-2007, 02:47 PM
wow I've never even heard of that breed! (that's a first!) Does someone want to share some facts about this breed for me? Lol. Must be very pretty, I mean look at Amanda! :D

Sorry for only replying now, things have been very hectic.

Melanie, Boerperde are wonderful horses. They were developed in South Africa from Friesians, Arabians and several other breeds. They are small, hardy horses, they are between 13.2hh- 15.1hh. There are a few who were 16hh. I've owned 4 Boerperde and loved them. Though not all of them were easy!! They can be quite hot! They compete in dressage, showjumping, eventing western riding, five gates and more! Here is a link to the SA Boerperd Society's website: http://www.saboerperd.com/

And some photos of Boerperde:

Grand Champion Mare: Universal
Name: Vierkleur Elsa

Name: Carel Hancke Singita
Reserve Champion Show riding horse 2007
(He was sold for R200 000 :eek: !!!)

Name: Lang Carel Basta
One of the best known Boerperde who ever lived

Hope you enjoy this and the site!!!

wow thanks! I saw the name and I was like...what is this? A breed I don't know? I must learn!

haha thanks for the info!


**EDIT** What does R200 000 mean? Like what does the R stand for?
I'm not too smart in this. I know the dollar sign and the euro sign(I think).

05-26-2007, 10:30 AM
Pleasure! And yes a Boerperd is a breed. The R stands for Rand, R200 000 is a LOT :D

05-26-2007, 02:02 PM
Oh. Hmm well I'm off to look up what Rand is. lol.
