    Fantastic news from the Sopot CCI4*-S in Poland earlier this month when Hong Kong event rider (and former HKPC member) Thomas Heffernan Ho secured an Olympics Eventing Individual qualification on his horse Tayberry. 


    We are very grateful to HKJC for arranging a Q&A session on Monday 28th September, 2020 at which young riders in Hong Kong will have the opportunity to meet with Tom over zoom.

    This Q&A session is free for HKPC members. Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Please visit the Events page of our website for more information.

    Due to social distancing restrictions the format of this year's CCC will be very different from usual. Starting in October 2020, competitors for each team will be invited to complete show-jumping rounds at their usual riding centres only. Videos of all entries will be uploaded to a shared platform before the 25th of each month for judging.

    We are very grateful to Lowu Saddle Club and Clearwater Bay Equestrian Centre for hosting HKPC riders from their respective riding centres to compete for the HKPC team this year. If you ride regularly at either of these riding centres, please express interest to LWSC or CEEC to participate in the CCC and you may be allocated a place on the HKPC team!

    We deeply regret that due to restrictions on riders moving between riding centres, we will not be able to invite riders who do not usually ride at either LWSC or CEEC to join our CCC team this year. We sincerely hope the situation will return to normal next season.

    It was with surprise and sadness that we accepted the resignation of Deborah Coulson from the HKPC Committee at our last meeting on 10th August. Deborah will be leaving Hong Kong to return to the UK. We are so sorry to see her go, but at the same time delighted she has offered to continue to provide her support from afar. We are also grateful to Christian Allderidge who agreed to join our Committee in her place.

    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 each age category.

    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!
