BEIJING, China – November, 2015 – The Ritz-Carlton Beijing, Financial Street and Equuleus International Riding Club, the only BHS-approved (British Horse Society) club and the top equestrian club in China, together present “Full Gallop! The Ritz-Carlton Afternoon tea” themed afternoon tea, introducing a new lifestyle trend in the city along with the hotel’s newly launched autumn and winter afternoon tea menu.

Equestrianism and afternoon tea are both elegant and sought-after social events in Britain. Both are perfect for training a man on how to be a gentleman, and a woman on how to be a lady. Equestrianism brings health benefits and boosts courage and confidence, whereas afternoon tea is a perfect social event to build or strengthen relationships among friends and business partners in a relaxing atmosphere and mood.
