Our permanent riding instructors are Nadine Fuerst, Kirstie Wingrove and Keziah Thomas . Although they mainly give riding lessons, they also have a lot of other tasks at Sleepy Hollow to keep them busy all day! They assist Lisa during her therapy sessions and help out with SARDA every Thursday morning. When lessons finish each term, they are the ones who organise the Pony Camps for the kids. Nadine takes beach trails out as a trail guide on some mornings during the week. Nadine being from Germany, with a German diploma in Social work and also studied at Elsenburg, is our Stable Manager at Sleepy Hollow and can also assist clients in German.

Nkazi Joyce and at times Maureen Gibb are answering phone calls and emails, helping our customers, keeping the office and everything in it in order and more… If you ever have any general questions or queries, they are the ones to ask!  Nkazi is a great help at pony parties :)

Keziah Thomas is our newest staff member, doing mostly trails but is also a lesson instructor.

Japie and Livingstone  are our grooms. They are responsible for keeping our farm so well maintained and the animals fed and taken care of. Our pony rides are also taken out by our friendly grooms, who lead the ponies through the lanes of Noordhoek and around the farm.

We have a group of very experienced and competent trail guides who take out our Beach Trails and Bush Trails. Although they are not with us on a permanent basis, as bookings for the trails vary weekly, they are still a great part of our family here at Sleepy Hollow.
