Meet Isabel Juby, the driving force behind African Horse Safaris. She will introduce to you the African Horse Safaris and the Foundation. For this informal cocktail evening, she’ll give a presentation on responsible travel, her love affair with horse safaris in Africa, and how the AHFS foundation is making a difference.
The Foundation supports sustainable community-led wildlife conservation initiatives across Africa, focusing on the areas through which we ride. Not only are our riding holidays exciting, vibrant and unforgettable experiences – they truly are life-changing. Responsible tourism is at the heart of the African Horse Safaris ethos. Just by traveling with us, guests help fund conservation initiatives, uplift local communities and make a tangible difference in Africa’s wildlife, landscapes, and inhabitants.
Our guest presenter Sabine Schut Kery will talk about her dressage career and passion for Africa ahead of her upcoming trip to South Africa. She will also be hosting the Masterclass held on the 15th of April – not to be missed!
There are limited spots at the evening so do register if you are keen to attend. There are no ticket fees and each guest attending is automatically entered into a competition for a raffle draw to win a horse safari in Africa.
Isabel is the heart and soul behind African Horse Safaris, ever since she started the company in 2016. Isabel was born just outside of London and lived there until she was 23. She first got bitten by the Africa bug on a family trip to explore Namibia. After University, Isabel left the UK for Africa for what was supposed to be a 2 month’s work placement with a horse safari company in Botswana… And yet here we are 7 years later! She now calls Zimbabwe home and has travelled across much of Southern and Eastern Africa, both in and out of the saddle. Combining her love of horses, travel and Africa, setting up the Foundation is the next step in her African journey.
Sabine is an elite dressage rider and trainer who competes internationally and also delights audiences with extraordinary equestrian exhibitions.

In 2015, she competed for the United States of America at the Pan American Games, and came home with a Team Gold Medal in Dressage. She was twice awarded the Carol Lavelle Advanced Dressage Training Grant and spent the fall of 2017 in Europe doing focused training and competition with her Grand Prix partner, Sanceo.
