    Art Uytendaal, a wonderful, knowledgeable man. I am privileged to have lessons with him, and also enjoy the friendship of both his wife, Kerry, and Art.

    Art Uytendaal, I had lessons from him and got to know him and Kerry for a while when they lived in Humevale. He is a legend and I always looked up to him. I can honestly say knowing Art was one of the best times of my life.

    I learned from Art in the ’70s – and he bought from me a loony TB ex-hurdle racer, Jimerne (later aka Johnny Walker Whisky for obvious reasons.) From being virtually uncontrollable around fences, he became one of the top showjumpers of his day. But Art always said: “With most horses, it’s 60/40 – with THIS horse it’s 70-/30 – I’m 30.” It was his tact and understanding that made him the greatest horseman in Australia – and one of the very best in the world! It was one of my only regrets in leaving Oz for England in 1980 – that I couldn’t continue training with Art.
