Hong Kong Equestrian Federation (HKEF) is pleased to announce that the Federation is going to support 26 potential riders to take part in both local and overseas trainings for the fifth consecutive year with funding from the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) and the Hong Kong Sports Institute (HKSI).
At the end of May, the HKEF invited members aged 12 – 21 to submit their detailed training proposals including budget and competition plans presenting their eligibility and motivation to improve their riding skills across the season 2018/19. Upon the deadline on 8 June, 2018, 26 applications have been submitted to the HKEF Training and Selection Sub-Committee and Executive Committee for approval.

On top of these, we also support riders who will take part in international / FEI competitions that would score points under the Hong Kong Sports Institute Evaluation Criteria for Elite Vote Support for equestrian sports.
