Riders talk test event

"It's very exciting to ride here but at the end of the day the comeptition is not the be all and end all. It does help you prepare yourself mentally for next year as a competitior and to get a feel of the place seeing as this will be the only time we do so" - Piggy French

"The importance of being in London, in the hub, is that it's just so special. It would be such an honour to compete on home territory, it's going to be such an experience if you compete here next year - but of course the pressure will be on. I think London 2012 will be just as much about the terrain as the fences and will really push ourselves as riders" - Pippa Funnell

"Great experience to have done it, very very twisty course and very demanding; you've got to have a horse that uses his gears very easily, that doesn't take too much out of himself when he does so. It was a great experience for my horse and for myself" - William Fox-Pitt after the cross-country

H&C TV caught up with the British athletes (competitors, demo riders and spectators) during the test event; here they talk to Piggy French, just after she won the eventing invitational competition.
