AGSJ3Hi everybody,

The big day finally arrived! Team jumping at the Asian Games! 9 teams in total. There were originally ten teams but one horse failed the trot up from team India. Since they only had three on the team, this left them with 2 individuals. The Hong Kong horses all passed without any problems.


John Vallance designed a lovely course. The time was tight which resulted in quite a few time faults! After 2 rounds of jumping, team Qatar walked away with the gold medal finishing with 0 faults. Team Saudi Arabia won silver with 4 faults and bronze went to team Japan. Hong Kong ended up in 6th.
