About Malan du Toit
MALAN du Toit has risen to prominence in South Africa and elsewhere due to his remarkable success with problem horses, from Thoroughbreds to Saddle horses to Lippizaners. Self-taught by way of trial and error and applying the skills gleaned from relevant study material over 25 years, he now has a formidable success rate and his services are in high demand, locally and internationally.
Malan is likeable, approachable and easy-going, but has a no-nonsense approach to horses and his methods are based on the individuality of every horse brought to his care. He makes an assessment based on that and then applies a variety of techniques to improve attitudes and general behaviour.
“If a problem horse is treated the same every day, your results will stay the same,” he says. “I change methods to suit the horse after assessing it, and I change again until I see results.”
If “anyone could do it”, like some critics would have it, then everyone would be doing it! Malan’s natural affinity with horses, coupled with his confidence, knowledge and incredible patience is not something acquired overnight. His experience gained working with a number of the legends among South African thoroughbreds including Dynasty, Variety Club, Jay Peg and more recently Legislate and Abashiri, speaks volumes.
