Sandra Kruger

Sandra grew up in the Kruger National Park where her father was a game ranger. As they lived in a very remote area of the park, she was allowed to keep a horse and her first horse was a rescue cross bred – who was blind in one eye. Her passion for horses stems from growing up with this particular horse, who trusted her and carried her safely across hundreds of miles of big five territory. After having matriculated, Sandra obtained a degree in dietetics, as well as a post-graduate diploma in hospital dietetics at the University of Pretoria. After several years of practicing as a dietician, privately as well as in corporate business, she finally decided to live her dream. Sandra now lives on an equestrian property in White River, Mpumalanga, where she runs her own stable yard and spelling farm, she backs and produces young horses, and competes her Lusitano mare, Legacy’s Soraya, in medium dressage. Sandra also has an exciting new youngster, Fircroft Domenico, who will be a great all-rounder and will start his competition career in 2019. Sandra has been in the equine insurance industry for 3 years. She enjoys the interaction with her clients, knowing that she is able to offer a solution that assists them financially in looking after their horses.
