  • Profession: amazzone dressage, istruttore Bhsai
  • Contacts:

Zilla Pearse, who has over the past 20 years ridden internationally for South Africa at the highest levels in both, Dressage and Eventing, has recently moved to Mustonate Varese.

All the horses she has ridden in competition have been produced by herself, together with her German husband Kurt, who is equally passionate about the horses, top trainers and her mother Tricia, who runs the stable management.

No matter what the level or discipline, she believes on always working at the basics to improve balance, self-carriage and ride-ability, thereby creating a sound basis on which to move forward in harmony, whether it will be sport or pleasure orientated direction.

Although it is not her profession, she is a qualified BHSA Instructor and is keen to help people who are interested in improving their horsemanship. Her attention to detail and the individual is what has been one of the main contributing factors which has led to her being asked to help the FISE this year as Tecnico for Eventing-Dressage Seniors to assist the National Trainer & Selector Andrea Mezzaroba.

When asked why she decided to move her horses to Mustonate and what she plans for the future, her response was very clear:
“I have seldom seen a place with as much potential, not only does it have breathtaking panoramic views over Lake Varese and the Swiss Alps, but it also has everything one needs in a training centre to prepare horses for the coming season, particularly over the winter months. It also is ideal as a rehabilitation center as there is super ground and a resident vet.”
