As Team GB riders compete in Rio de Janeiro, back in Coventry (UK) supporters of Team GB were taken closer to the action this weekend at the official Team GB FanZone.
As well as following Team GB athletes, 400 fans at the Team GB Fanzone Coventry were given the chance to try their hand at horse riding on Henry the mechanical horse. Afterwards, they all received a goody bag with information on how to discover more about horses and a voucher towards an equestrian taster experience at a participating centre.
“I would encourage anyone to visit Hoof at the Team GB FanZones, the half hour on Monday put the biggest smile on my face and I am now determined to start riding again and do the British Horse Society Stage 1 course. Thank you!” says one participant.
Hoof, the British Equestrian Federation’s (BEF) participation initiative have joined force with Team GB to offer this opportunity to learn more about one of this summer’s most exciting Olympic sports.
