Horse riders have yet another competition opportunity.


This will be at this year’s cross country and show jumping event at the Flametree Stables in Kijabijo, Gayaza.

Dubbed the Equator Event, the October 24 to 25 competition, will have participants contesting in various age categories.

Eight-year olds Kya Mc Comb and Zoe Furness were amongst the youngsters that thrilled spectators at the previous edition last October.

Showing calmness and control beyond their years, Kya and Zoe led their ponies to victory in the pre-novice category in Uganda’s first equestrian competition.

Riding ‘Bullrush’, Kya and Zoe, on Blackjack, were part of an entry of 30 riders from six countries in the two-day
event at Flametree stables in Kijabijo, Gayaza in Wakiso district.

The Lala Haidara, Sonja McLaughlan and Katie Bowser trio was also unmatched in the team chasers score.

Flametree Stables is owned by Miranda Bowser.

An accomplished horse-woman, Miranda moved to Uganda from England over 20 years ago and has been keeping horses and teaching people to ride ever since. Nestled in the Gayaza countryside, Flametree Stables is 30 minutes away from Kampala.
