INNER MONGOLIA HORSE FAIR
July 11th to 14th
We are very excited to tell you that the Hong Kong Pony Club has received an invitation from the organisers of the Inner Mongolia Horse Industry International Fair to send a team of 4 riders to participate in the youth equestrian challenge in China. The exact details of the Fair have yet to be received but the equestrian competition will include sporting events along similar lines to the Horse Fair held in Guangdong Province last December (click here to watch the video). The horses allocated to the riders will be inexperienced in this type of competition and will come from riding establishments in the province as it is rare for horses to be individually owned. Needless to say we will need experienced, higher level riders because of this.
It is not clear at this stage about the cost of return travel to Inner Mongolia, but riders will be expected to pay their own travel costs. Once there, all costs of travel within Inner Mongolia, accomodation and meals etc will be covered by the host nation.
The four riders selected will be expected to have a current passport, obtain a China Visa and pay part of thier uniform costs (each rider will be given 2 HKPC Dri-Fit Shirts), along with some souvenirs and some personal spending money.
The provisional dates are:
July 7th - travel to Inner Mongolia
July 8th-10 Training on horses
July 11th-14th Horse Fair
July 14th to 16th Sightseeing
July 17th - Return to Hong Kong
To be eligilbe for selection you need to be an active member of the Pony Club, and a strong capable rider. As we receive more details we will be able to give more requirements, but for now we are looking at members between the ages of 14 and 18 years old.
