    If you are free this coming Monday January 3rd, why not pop over to Tuen Mun Public Riding School to watch Pony Club Mounted Games in action?

    • Show time 2 - 3pm
    • Free of charge; open to all!

    Following our practice session last Monday, we're confident to put on quite a show thanks to Coach Megan's games expertise and Coach Joelle's expert pairing of our super riders with the lovely (if occasionally a little bit uncooperative) ponies at TMPRS.

    Hong Kong Pony Club is very fortunate to be part of a fantastic network of alumni and other former instructors/ volunteers who are doing amazing things with horses around the world. We want to help keep this network alive and connected through our Get to Know... sessions.

    Last Saturday, Kendall took time out of her busy schedule to chat over zoom about her experiences coming up through the public riding school, Pony Club and Junior Equestrian Team training system in Hong Kong and then transitioning to the UK, where she has established her own breeding, livery and competition yard.

    It was fascinating to get a glimpse into Kendall's new life with a virtual tour of Kruger Equestrian. And it was especially amazing to see Sticky (aka Mountain Treasure) and Orange (aka Titanium Alloy) looking so well in their new home.

    While Sticky, aged 20, is clearly enjoying semi-retirement, Orange continues to demonstrate how versatile our wonderful Hong Kong ex-racehorses can be. He has clearly not yet reached his limit show-jumping at 1.40m in the UK. We wish him and Kendall all the best for the future.

    Can't wait to hear what the next chapter in this lovely Hong Kong racehorse love story will entail.

    Orange on the track in Hong Kong; and now soaring to new heights in his second career as a show-jumper with Kendall in the UK.

    Thank you Alex for generously spending time on zoom from your quarantine room in Beijing last night to allow our members to 'Get to Know' you and some of your beautiful horses. Hong Kong in the 1990's was a special place to grow up. You are not alone in remembering those years very fondly.

    It was especially lovely to hear you speak passionately about the wonderful animals that have carried you thus far in your career. Each and every one a very special individual. We wish you all the best for the future... and will continue following your progress with keen interest.

    Please keep in touch!

    The kind and generous "Maggie" and the feisty "Pye" who gave Alex experience and confidence in his formative years over many iconic tracks, including Lexington, Hickstead, Samur and Badmington.

    "Spike" - the champ who stepped up to bring home Bronze in Jakarta (Asian Games 2018) and "The Don" - an ironic name for a gentle soul who has represented Team China proudly at not one but two Olympics (Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2021).

    Thank you Nicky for examining and to Beas River Equestrian Center and LoWu Saddle Club for hosting. None of this would be possible without the invaluable support of Christian Allderidge and Laurel Cooke.
