    “The Olympics was never in my targets with this horse or within myself, but it just kind of fell in place.”


    We've just discovered this lovely article about Tom Ho and his road to Tokyo published in The Chronicle of the Horse (a US magazine) in July.  It's a lovely story.

    As we've said before, we couldn't be more proud of our alum who is a fantastic role model for Pony Club. We are also forever thankful for his late father Fred, who encouraged many young riders, not only Tom and his brothers, in his role as District Commissioner of HKPC.

    • Best at Camp - Lyndsay Son
    • Most Improved at Camp - Kate Lui
    • Stable Management Awards - Siobhan Doherty, Fenella Millen, Sarah Broderick & Charmaine Ip

    Hope you've managed to catch some of the Tokyo Olympics Eventing because it's been incredible to see Alex Hua and Tom Ho representing us so proudly on the world stage.


    Alex and Don Geniro extending beautifully into 3rd place after the dressage phase. Alex is riding in his third Olympic Games as part of the first team to represent China in Eventing at the Olympics..

    After the dressage, Alex and Don Geniro were lying in third place with only 23.9 penalties. They completed a beautiful clear round on the cross-country course this morning, incurring 12 time faults which puts them in 18th place individually before the final phase tomorrow. Alex's strong performance has also helped put the China Eventing Team in 9th place moving forwards.

    Tom and Tayberry. The first pair in history to represent Hong Kong in Eventing at the Olympics.

    Tom and Tayberry (who at 20 years old is apparently the oldest horse in the competition) also jumped a lovely clear round cross-country this morning. Combining penalties incurred in the dressage phase and time faults from the cross-country they move forward in 46th place with 102.3 penalties to the final phase tomorrow. This is already an amazing achievement for the first pair ever to represent Hong Kong in Eventing at the Olympics. We are so proud!

    Don't miss the Eventing show-jumping finals tomorrow afternoon/ evening!
