After an accidental kick from one of a young horse, the Head of Inspections at the South African Warmblood Horse Society, Mrs Charmaine Watts was airlifted to Sunninghill hospital where she remained in a come for some weeks. She has recovered sufficiently to be moved in the second week of June to Riverfield Lodge for rehabilitation. We wish her family all strength and patience in a long but definite recovery process. Mr Ernst Holtz and Mrs Pat Pohl will take over the duties of her position for the moment.
Charmaine Watts has been a strong and dedicated National Inspector who was held in high esteem by our visiting overseas judges such as Mr Werners (KWPN), Dr Christman (Han), Dr Schade (Han), and Mr Rik Van Miert (BWP). It is a difficult and contentious position to hold in any horse society and we appreciated the work she had done.
