Cayla van der Walt one of KZN Dressage top Junior riders has been diagnosed with a malignant Sarcoma PNET.  It was removed during an operation but Cayla will require further treatment and has left for the USA on the 22 July 2016..We all fondly remember Cayla and her beautiful horse Ticket to Paradise who competed and won many Dressage shows and won several awards, who was a member of the Junior Novice Team 2015 and who won the KZN Breeders Challenge.

Cayla, we are going to miss you very much! Your and Elliot’s space in every class will be empty, but we wish you all the best with your treatment and hope to see you soon!
