Shongweni Club is a beautiful and priceless equestrian venue that exists due to the commitment of members, past and present, who value and appreciate its quality in an age of ever declining sports and recreational venues. Shongweni Club is recognized as being the equestrian hub of Kwa-Zulu Natal and renowned as one of the best competitive venues in the country. Once purely a Polo venue, Shongweni Club has over the many years welcomed various other sports & disciplines into the family. Most recently mountain bikers, trail runners & rugby are all seen making use of this pristine property.

The backbone of Shongweni Club is undoubtably the Committee, staff and ever growing membership base, many of whom give unselfishly of their time, energy and funds to ensure that the facility is maintained, enhanced and preserved for future generations of equine lovers and outdoor enthusiasts alike.

We are always welcoming new members, so if you want to be a part of our Shongweni Club family, drop us a line, we would love to hear from you. This website includes lots of news and interesting information about our wonderful venue, its staff and members. There are regular postings and updates to keep you both informed and enlightened on our happenings.

Facilities at Shongweni Club consist of two world class Clopf Fibre arenas which are available for riders to use for clinics and lessons.  You will have to phone the office on 031-7681251 to book your slot and to see if it is available.

We also have a fibre practice arena that is open to all members but not exclusively.  We have three sand dressage arenas that can also be booked through the office if you are wanting to ride in them. We also have a cross country track which after an Eventing show, you may come and jump, but you have to book in the office and let us know when you will be going out and preferably go out with someone else from the safety side of things.

We also have 90 brick stables for show purposes.  We have a private yard consisting of 50 horses at the moment and have a waiting list of people wanting to stable here at the Club.  There is also a polo field which is used for the BMW polo tournament.  The polo players use this as their practice field in the polo season.

The polo field is also used by the Model Aircraft Club.

If you would like to come and visit us and explore our facilities, please contact us.
