YIN HUNG YOUNG is a Hong Kong-born rider – side saddle her favourite seat – and a former consultant to the British Equestrian Federation. She was inspired to write The Horses of China following a visit to breeder friends in Kentucky. The book is devoted to her lifelong hobby and is an endeavour to document the fragmented but interesting facets of Chinese equestrian life – current and historical – and to promote horse rights in China. This is her first book.
