Over the past 20 years horse riding as a sport in China has been on the rise. In particular, the 2008 Olympics where China was represented by six riders in the Hong Kong arena had a large impact on young people learning the sport.

China Daily reporter Peng Yining took the short drive out of central Beijing to Xiwu International Equestrian Club, out near the airport, where around 40 of the 200 members are younger than 18 years old, to find out what was driving young people to learn this ancient sport.
