Name: Priscilla Cheung Age: 14 Top Tunes: Canto-pop and Taiwanese pop ballads I don't like horses because they're not cute. Hong Kong students don't get many chances to see or touch horses. I would be very excited if horses were brought to my school. I don't know much about horse riding, but I'm quite interested in equestrian events. They're different from horse racing and should not be linked together. Name: Sophie Yuen Age: 14 Top Tunes: Chinese and classical music When I think about horses, the British royal family immediately comes to mind. Horses are beautiful and elegant. Members of the royal family are good horse riders. I love horses, so I support Hong Kong in hosting the 2008 Olympic equestrian events. If I had the chance, I would get involved. Some people think the sport will encourage people to gamble, but I don't think so. My dad loves horse racing, but he's not addicted to it. He thinks horse racing is great fun. Name: Jeffery Cheung Age: 16 Top Tunes: Taiwanese and local pop songs The first thing that comes to mind is horse racing, which is really boring. It is a waste of money. My family and I don't gamble at all. But I do support Hong Kong in hosting the 2008 Olympic equestrian events. Equestrian events are completely different from horse racing. The sport involves techniques and skills. I hope I would be able to ride a horse some day. Name: Tiffany Lam Age: 14 Top Tunes: Hong Kong and Taiwanese pop songs I love horses because I'm a big fan of the merry-go-round. Horses run so fast and they're cool. I support Hong Kong's decision to host the Olympic equestrian events. Equestrian events are a competitive sport with a long history. It involves co-ordination between riders and horses and is the only Olympic sport in which humans work together with animals. I tried horse riding in Malaysia and it was fun. Hong Kong people are unfamiliar with equestrian events. I think the government should do more to promote the sport. Name: Claudia Chan Age: 16 Top Tunes: Canto-pop songs and classical music I really like horses because they're my zodiac. My dad loves horses too. When I was a child, he took me to see horses. They were so cute. Equestrian events are great. It is one of the few sports in which men and women compete on equal terms. I don't think equestrian events would encourage horse betting. Liking horses doesn't mean you'll gamble on them.
