MARK TODD CBE

Vuma has always been green; from our branding and packaging to our approach to feeding horses, but this week we had a completely different reason.

Envy!

The (very lucky) Summerhill team had the great honour of hosting legendary eventer Mark Todd at the stud farm. Having won Badminton again this year, on his grey horse Land Vision, he really is an inspiration to any rider and proof that age should not be a limiting factor in competitive riding.

Apart from his many Gold medals and being inducted into the New Zealand Sports Hall of Fame, he was voted 'Rider of the 20thCentury' by the FEI! He is a true legend!

If you have not already read it, his autobiography, 'So Far So Good', is well worth the read. He has also published a number of instructional books as well as a book on his famous and much-loved horse Charisma!

As we write, we are compiling our 'Recommended Reading' list to post onto the Vuma Website and these books are most definitely on the list. If you have any titles that you would like to share, please do email us at info@vumafeed.co.za.
