Dianne Nicholson (UK)
I have been involved in breeding animals since birth – initially dogs and cattle but since 1988 solely horses. I have bred under the prefix Dibynn – initially in South Africa and now in the United Kingdom.
My main interest is Riding ponies and Hacks – but all of my ponies have been part Bred Welsh with many having Arab blood as well. My Hacks have been OTT Thoroughbreds.
I have produced in Hand, Ridden and Private Drive supreme Champions in South Africa, and have been fortunate to continue this success against mainly professionals in the United Kingdom.
I was on the National Welsh and Showing panels in South Africa and have started judging in the United Kingdom on a few of the many panels.
Annabelle Hampton (NZ)
I live near a small village called Cave in South Canterbury, New Zealand. We live on a sheep and beef farm called Belmont Station. We have Stud Suffolk, Charollais and South Suffolk Sheep and 2 children who have now left school and on their next adventures.
I have been involved with Riding Ponies and Showing all my life. My Grandparents and Mother bred and Exhibited ponies and were Foundation Members of the NZ Riding Pony Society when it was established. I rode and exhibited ponies successfully all through my childhood, many being progeny of my mother’s ponies. I then attended University and continued following my passion for Riding Ponies by breeding and exhibiting and my daughter competed in Lead Rein and First Ridden.
I started judging soon after I left school through the RAS and through Young Farmers competitions and have judged Horses, Sheep and Boer Goats around New Zealand.
I have been heavily involved with the NZ Riding Pony Society, being Newsletter Editor for several years, Registration Officer for 14 years and am now a Councillor. I am also heavily involved with our local Agricultural Show in the Equestrian section.
