4.37-km-long urban horse-culture road opens in Beijing

After undergoing a year of construction, the first phase of the 4.37-km-long Cuigezhuang Horse Road officially opened to the public on Oct. 28, in Chaoyang District, Beijing.

Not only can citizens gallop in professional equestrian competitions, but they can also ride horses on the road to enjoy the beautiful scenery. Located in the northeast of Beijing, Cuigezhuang runs along many famous scenic spots such as the Heliqi wetland and Red Brick Art Museum.
