Cath Macfarlane

Cath Macfarlane is an open show rider and an open showjumper. She has been riding since she was 5 years old. As a child, junior and young rider, Cath competed in all disciplines- showing, equitation, dressage and showjumping. She has won a lot of titles across the disciplines with super horses which have sadly passed on (Waterside Blue Nile, Kondos Costaras, Brandenburg Super C, Brandenburg Lolita, Bayethe, and Global Quest (Retired)). 

Cath currently owns a showjumping yard with Oscar Ncube based in Kyalami, JHB - Called LinRowe Stables where she teaches flatwork and dressage. She is currently competing with 4 horses across the grades at the moment - Callaho Lyanne, Callaho Consigo, Kondos Give Me a Break, and WestWind. "I really enjoy the production of my own horses as it’s much more rewarding long-term. It teaches me so much more about each animal because they’re all so different. They teach me so much about myself because they show what I’m weaker and stronger at! I firmly believe in team work as that’s what makes the dream work. I am super excited to be part of the Onyx Equestrian team!" - Cath Macfarlane
