Equestrian Team Updates

April 2019

The FIS Equestrian Higher Division and Lower Division teams competed on 20 March 2019 (at Tsuen Mun Public Riding School) and 22 March 2019 (at Lo Wu Saddle Club), respectively, in the HK Interschool Equestrian Challenge.

The girls tacked, saddled and managed the temperament of unfamiliar horses for both dressage and show jumping. Both teams did FIS proud. Individually, Leelani N. placed 5th in dressage and Sharlen D. 6th in jumping.

Higher Division came in a respectable 5th place overall with 364.16 points, impressive for their first time competing in Tsuen Mun at the Higher level,  The Lower Division team received a fabulous 357.85 points as it was the first time all members of the Lower Division have competed in the Interschool competition.

Leelani was also competing in the Senior Division - Eventing Interschool Competition on 30-March at Beas River.

It is worth noting that Leelani has just been selected, at a personal level, by the Hong Kong Equestrian Federation as one of four riders to represent Hong Kong in Australia at the Inter-school Victorian Horse Trials Championships! A phenomenal achievement!

We are very proud of our teams' achievements this season, in particular of the 3 girls in lower division: well done on being so brave at such a young age !

At both competitions, Sharlen came a very impressive 2nd place overall!

The Lower Division team (consisting of Victoria M. 5eme, Norah C. 5eme and Emily B. Y4) enjoyed their first competition of the season at Lo Wu Saddle Club on 30 November. The team competed in both dressage and show jumping against RCHK, NAIS and GSIS. All girls scored well in dressage and obtained clear rounds in jumping.

Very well done to both teams. The girls would like to express their thanks and gratitude to the FIS community for so kindly providing the lovely team shirts as well as saddle cloths; proudly showing the FIS logo.
