    A few weeks ago we invited entries from our members to the British Pony Club's International Art Competition... On deeper reflection, we've now decided to run our own local art competition too!

    All you need to do is email us a high quality image of your own original artwork on the theme of "Equestrian Hopes and Dreams" (whatever this theme means to you.) Entries must reach us before 20th June 2020. Our judges will select winners and runners-up in three age categories (Under 11, 12 - 16 years, 17 plus).

    There are some great prizes to be won!

    We will automatically forward all local entries to the international art competition so that your talent can be recognised on the world stage!

    Thank you to all volunteers who joined us at Beas River for the CCI1* on 14 December 2019. It was a glorious day and wonderful to see such beautiful horses and talented riders in action.

    If you enjoyed this experience, please save the date on Saturday 14 March 2020 for the Eventing Horse of Year show. We are planning to run the inaugral HONG KONG PONY CLUB FUNATHLON in conjunction with the Hong Kong Equestrian Federation's One Day Event on that day. More details to follow...

    In the meantime, for those staying in Hong Kong over the holidays, you may be interested to check out the Christmas Holiday Camps on offer at CEEC. We have it on good authority there are limited spaces still available for beginner and novice riders. More information here.

    Wishing you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    The 2019 Inter-Pacific Exchange between HK, USA, Cananda, Australia and NZ took place this summer in Hong Kong (you can read more about it on our Inter-Pacific Exchange page) with both main competitions being held at Beas River Equestrian Centre.

    The Hong Kong team members were:
    Annabelle Dyson
    Gabby Thomas
    Claudia Wrobel
    Matilda Marchand.

    All the teams had a fantastic time and made plenty of new horsey friends from all round the world. Here is what Claudia has to say about the IPE.

    The International Pacific Exchange was a wonderful experience full of fun and competitive spirit. Each day held a different activity that I looked forward too, whether it was the equine hospital visit, hacking, quizzes, gymkhanas or the dressage and show jumping competitions. Apart from the exciting riding and equine related activities, this competition stood out in another way too. Since it was held over 2 weeks, we all had the opportunity to do other activities such as visiting landmarks, boat trips and have our own time to explore or relax. This was the highlight of my experience because I hadn’t been to a show that spanned out for a long duration and allowed us to partake in planned outings as well as the competition itself. It encouraged us to get to know the competitors, build friendships, learn from one another, experience the culture of the host country, compete and do what we love: ride!
