Who We Are

About Dirk Bros Stables
When he moved back to Cape Town, he had to sell all his horses in Namibia. In July 2011, he bought 2 horses, a saddle horse and a hackney horse. He was given some inspiration to go and show with the 2 horses in Malmesbury and that’s where it all began. He won the under 3year old single harness with FIRETOWER and saddle horse single harness with SENSATIONAL SHAMROCK. He named his stables ‘DIRK BROS STABLES’. The next show he attended was in Tulbagh in Nov 2011. There he won the championships with the same 2 horses.
Waleed decided to go full out into show horses and bought another 3 horses viz. MAESTRO, FIREMAGIC and SWEETSMILE, 2stallions and a mare. Then he attended the Cape Town show in Plantation road in Dec 2011. There he won the under 3 year old with FIRETOWER, he won the saddle horse single harness with SHAMROCK, won the hackney senior single harness championship with MAESTRO. Thereafter, he bought another 2 mares named POPPIE and GIGI. POPPIE gave birth to a foal, fathered by MATRIX and Waleed named him SHOWTIME.
