London equestrian venue “nowhere near good enough”

LONDON,  (Reuters) – The surface at the equestrian  venue for the London 2012 Olympics has been criticised by  competitors at the end of a three-day test event.

The Greenwich Park site has been praised for its general  facilities but local residents have voiced concerns over damage  to the environment and now several riders have slammed the waxed  sand and fibre-based surface.

British Nations Cup rider David McPherson told British  media: “The surface is nowhere near good enough. It needs an  enormous amount of work.”
