DIARY: South Africa seems full of horse play for Moss

Sally-Anne Moss, the charming boss of Brunswick’s South African office, is the talk of Johannesburg’s Central Business District.

is the talk of Johannesburg’s Central Business District.



It appears that the founding director of Financial Dynamics is so

passionate about horses that she had two of her own flown out with her.

Wilbur and Gubby - both eventers - are settling in nicely. And the two

she left behind are much missed. ‘I couldn’t bring all four out, much as

I would like to - the cost was just too enormous,’ she says.



Although she has never ridden professionally, Moss is quite dedicated to

eventing and is already making hermark on the scene - she is due to

ride in South Africa’s equivalent of Badminton, the Sappi Horse Trials

next month.



Certainly her hobby has aroused the interest of the locals. ‘It’s been a

point of such interest since I arrived among South Africans that I

should want to bring the horses with me,’ says Moss. ‘I suppose it shows

commitment, because it’s really tough to get them out of the country

again. I think they think it’s typical of English eccentricity.’



As for the rumour that Brunswick met the cost of Wilbur and Gubby’s

flights as part of her relocation package, this, sadly, is untrue. ‘I

wish they had paid,’ says Moss, ‘maybe then I could have brought all

four out.’
