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.
