Jaco-profileAbout Jaco Fourie

Jaco Fourie is the International Transit Manager at Kuda. He imported his first batch of horses in 2003 already, and assisted many horse enthusiasts to realize their dream of importing horses to South Africa. He successfully managed a number of prosperous equine stud farms, before marrying his wife, Magda, and moving to their farm in Kathu where they breed Warmblood horses, Bonsmara cattle and a variety of game. He has a veterinary background, has a passion for sport horse breeding and regularly travels all over the world to research bloodlines and horses for sale. Jaco has been involved with horses all his life, and his wife and two young daughters are also avid riders. Apart from holding Protea colours for dressage and representing South Africa on many occasions, he produced many breed champions including Warmblood, Irish Draught, Thoroughbred, Boerperd, Welsh Pony, Arab and Nooitgedachter horses as well. He worked with horses in the UK, USA, Germany, Netherlands and Austria, and travels all over South Africa to teach the art of dressage riding. He still competes at the highest levels of dressage on horses that he bred and trained, from stock that was imported by him.
