British-based Chinese event rider Alex Hua Tian will be on Channel 4 tonight (Tuesday 1 February) celebrating Chinese New Year.

21-year-old Alex will be on at 7.55pm, straight after the news.

During the 5min piece Alex will be talking about Chinese New Year, his passion for the sport, his pride in competing for China, his goals for the Year of the Rabbit — including his hopes for qualifying for the Olympics.

“When Channel 4 invited me to talk about my experiences of Chinese New Year I jumped at the opportunity to bring the sport to a wider audience,” Alex told H&H.

Alex was H&H’s online blogger during 2009 and 2010. To read his blog visit: http://www.horseandhound.co.uk/alexhuatian
