The Arab Horse Breeders Society of Namibia is proud to announce that the 2006 WAHO Trophy for Namibia has been awarded to the mare Le-Wardi Daneska. This mare is one of the most highly regarded endurance horses in Namibia, at only 7 years of age she has already successfully completed 1,280 competitive kilometres in this tough sport. She is currently rated 27th on the FEI World ranking list, and 8th in Namibia.
Together with her owner, Louis de Kock, Le-Wardi Daneska has represented Namibia on their Junior Team at two International Endurance rides (against South Africa and Botswana) in 2006. Louis is also one of the Junior riders chosen for the Namibian Team to participate in the World Endurance Championships in 2007 in Argentina.
Le-Wardi Daneska’s successes since late 2005 include four wins and four high placings from eight rides, two of those competitions were 80 km events and the rest were over distances ranging from 100km to 127 km. Most importantly, she also achieved the Best Conditioned Horse Award at seven of those eight events.
The Arab Horse Breeders Society of Namibia considers that Le-Wardi Daneska is a remarkable Arabian and an excellent ambassador for the breed, As she is still young the Namibian Endurance Team hope that she will continue to represent her country for many years to come.
