December 2019 saw the first training conducted in Australia on the innovative Mares Horizon SCR.

From 7-10 December, two candidates were put through their paces by Mares Horizon SCR trainer Chris Serfontein at Manta Lodge on North Stradbroke Island, Queensland.

Paul Leslie, XR Instructor Trainer, from Adreno, and Dan Fitzgerald, XR Instructor Trainer from Manta Lodge, will be the first two Mares Horizon SCR instructors in Australia once they complete the required hours on the unit.

Rubens Monaco certified on the Mares Horizon SCR several days later, and will be delivering training on the unit in the Melbourne area.
