    A big thank you to Lowu Saddle Club (again) for hosting our 7-week Pony Care programme

    "Likeness of Blondie" by Cayley Ngan

    Every Monday through October and November about a dozen members (and their little siblings) came along each Monday evening for grooming, tack cleaning and all sorts of other fun around the yard. We covered the content for several Pony Club Mini Achievement badges, including Colours & Markings, Pony Behaviour, Care of the Foot, Saddlery and lots more.

    All the while keeping safe and maintaining our social distance.

    We hope Lowu staff and riders enjoyed our chalk-based street art creation that we made at the end of the last session to say thank you. (Not to worry it will wash off.)

    Special thanks to Liz Leven - our LWSC liaison - and also to India Gray, Audrey Lo and Eva Gunning for helping out and being so fantastic with the kids.

    Looking forward to doing it all again soon!

    Another big thank you to LWSC for hosting the Pony Club team in the second heat of the HKJC Childrens' Challenge Cup Competition 2020/21 on Friday 13th November.

    This time, we fielded an amazing all-girl team comprising Amelie Millen (20 cm), Furla Ng (30 cm) and Hazel Levy (50 cm). Thanks girls for your lovely riding and good sportmanship. Looking forward to receiving our results in due course.

    Remember, videos and results of this year's virtual CCC are available on Hong Kong Pony Club's padlet.

    Check it out!

    A fantastic team consisting of Anson Tam, Jeffrey Wong and Elliot Levy competed for Pony Club in the first heat of the Children's Challenge Cup 2020 at Lowu Saddle Club on the evening of Friday 16th October. Clear rounds were had by all! Big thank you to LWSC for hosting this event with their usual efficiency and style.

    This year, all CCC rounds will be judged virtually and the results for each heat will be announced at the end of each month. Check out our padlet for videos and updates!

    Wonderful news just received: Our very own Furla Ng has won first place in the International Pony Club Art Competition 2020 (11 years and under age category)!

    This is such a wonderful result in the first year that HKPC has participated in this competition.

    We are so proud of you, Furla!

    Well our inaugral hobby horse show didn't quite generate the overwhelming level of enthusiasm we'd hoped for, but we still received some very entertaining entries. Please view our compilation for the highlights.

         

    A big thank-you to all competitors for your sense of humour and support. Our judges had so much fun watching you and your hobby horses compete. They simply couldn't decide who did best, so everyone gets a 'special' rosette! Yay!

    Check out all the videos on our padlet...

    HKPC is hosting an online Quiz to help kick-off this year's Children's Challenge Cup competition.

    At least three competitors from each team must log in and submit their entries before the 25th of October. The best three individual scores will be combined to calculate an overall score for each team in this round.

    http://quizizz.com/pro/join?gc=17198352

    The difficulty level of the quiz is midway between our D and D+ efficiency tests. Even if you are not competing in this year's CCC, everyone is welcome to give it a go just for fun. Just click on the link above.

    Good Luck!

    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.
