How it all started...

Biography

 

Hong Kong born Jacqueline Siu became passionate about horses very early on, and by the age of five she was already riding horses at the Hong Kong Jockey Club’s Beas River Equestrian Centre. Jacqueline moved to England when she was ten, and her continued dedication enabled her to compete at International Pony, Junior, and Young Rider levels whilst progressing with her education. Having graduated from University College London, Jacqueline decided to pursue a career with horses.

A former Young Rider Champion with her horse Jamiro, Jacqueline began competing at senior level and made the decision to base herself in the Netherlands to train with multiple Olympic gold medallist Anky van Grunsven. This was a huge influence on Jacqueline, and through her hard work and dedication she was able to earn the respect of top riders and trainers. Anky van Grunsven said, “Jacqueline is a talented rider with good feeling. She makes sure the horses are fit and healthy and is able to challenge them to better their performance.”

Jacqueline has represented Hong Kong at many International competitions up to Grand Prix level, and in three consecutive Asian Games in 2006, 2010, and 2014. At the most recent Asian Games in 2014, Jacqueline and her mare Ferrera narrowly missed an individual medal and placed 4th individually. Having trained this horse herself since the horse was an unbacked 2 year old, they have developed a wonderful partnership and have since gone on to compete successfully up to International Grand Prix 4* level.  

Since 2016 Jacqueline has had the honour of being selected for the HKJC Performance Program. Riding Jockey Club Connery, Jacqueline has developed a wonderful relationship with this horse and has had great success including a win at Keysoe CDI3*. Jacqueline is also excited about training and competing Jockey Club Fuerst on Tour who joined the HKJC team in 2017. This combination made a sensational debut at the Chinese National Games, winning an individual silver medal for Hong Kong.
