    Equestrian tradition in China could date back several millennia. But only after 2008, when the equestrian competitions of the Beijing Olympic Games were held in Hong Kong, did Chinese people started to rediscover horse riding as a sport.

    Since then, equestrian fields have opened in many Chinese cities, such as Beijing and Shanghai.

    Twenty years ago, Boao was a small fishing village in south China’s Hainan Province. With the construction of international tourism island and a free trade port, equestrianism is developing rapidly in Hainan and attracting horse riders from around the world.

    CGTN’s Yang Xinmeng and Iain Inglis were challenged to hone their horse riding skills in one day.

    Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (HKSAR), is a metropolitan area and special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China on the eastern Pearl River Delta of the South China Sea. With over 7.5 million residents of various nationalities in a 1,104-square-kilometre (426 sq mi) territory, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world.

    Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the Qing Empire ceded Hong Kong Island at the end of the First Opium War in 1842. The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War and was further extended when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. The whole territory was transferred to China in 1997. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China under the principle of “one country, two systems”.
