William declares Olympic arena surface one of the best in the world

William Fox-Pitt on his dressage round this morning, scoring 46.70 on the 9 year old gelding Gaucho owned by Mrs Celia Plunkett...

"Quite extraordinary!” was William Fox-Pitt’s reaction on leaving the dressage arena “Greenwich has an Olympic feel already and gives a real taster of what next year will be like. The facilities here are incredible and the surface rides beautifully – it has a real spring which is very kind and forgiving on the horses.  It’s a brilliant experience to be here and I’ll leave no stone unturned to get here for real next year. Being here in London is very special and to have the equestrian venue so close to the Olympic stadium in 2012 will be a one off for the riders.”
“Gaucho is a young horse on the way up, he was a bit green in the arena and made a mistake in the counter canter but there’s a little bit of atmosphere in there and I’m very happy with how he coped.”
