LONDON 2012 OLYMPICS

Olympic eventing: July 30th

 

Maruska and Jenny were lucky enough to experience the amazing atmosphere as spectators at the cross country phase of the 2012 Olympics at Greenwich park. We’ll never forget the roar of the crowds as each GB rider rode their clear rounds. Well done team GB, you did us proud! ;) Here is just a few of the shots we took and the riders we were lucky enough to see...

At the individual show jumping final we were all in eager anticipation of Nick Skelton to take individual gold, especially after their victory with a team gold medal. Here are a few of the photos and a video of our GB team and the amazing course...

Unfortunately we only saw Peter Charles in the Greenwich Tavern afterwards and didn’t want to bother him for a photo! So we can’t forget Peter Charles, Olympic Team Gold Medalist! What a fantastic Olympics, we had such a fabulous time being able to enjoy the amazing atmosphere. Well done Team GB, you did your equestrian supporters proud.
