"Byerley has a love for children and for horses. The staff and yard owner are always there to help" Ashleigh Kabe
"I rode at Byerley park from the age of 4 untill I was 19 years of age and competed in childrens A grade and Junior B grade show jumping. I also received my South African Pony club show jumping colours while riding under Joan's instruction and am now currently back at Byerley Park as a full time instructor. It therefore speaks for itself that I love the yard, and would choose no other." Kelly Davidson

"I am sad about leaving Byerley Park - in fact, the only thing that I'm sad about in leaving Johannesburg, and I can truly say that getting out to the yard has transformed my relationship with my daughter and has brought so much sanity to my life here in this big city." Karin Osler
