It would be fair to say that the “blood pressure” of the Greenwich venue rose a little today! The Equipment Staging Facility (ESF)opened for business and thus the first horses and kit arrived. We had taken the decision to send in the Eventing equipment today with the horses arriving tomorrow. We visited the ESF and saw the Swedish team arriving – all handled most efficiently. All kit was security screened before being transported to the Venue and then on in to the stables.
Our kit arrived in the afternoon and once the pallets (feed, forage and trunks were all packed on pallets by the grooms to make for easier moving) were delivered to the stables an army of volunteers arrived to help unload it....what would have taken well over an hour was completed in 20 minutes; thank you, thank you. All is now packed away and the stables ready for the arrival of the equine superstars.

Horses arrive tomorrow.....and we hope, some riders...fingers crossed.
