Team GB eventers have ‘inspired a generation’
The British Horse Society (BHS) believes the successful Team GB riders that came home with five Olympic medals will have convinced many youngsters to try their hand at the sport.
Team GB's successful riders managed to come home with a silver medal in team eventing, a gold in showjumping and two golds and one bronze in dressage.
It was the first time ever that an Olympic British team has achieved a medal in the dressage competition.
Charlotte Dujardin managed to break two Olympic records on her way to taking dressage individual and team gold medals.
Commenting on Team GB's brilliant performances, BHS chairman Lynn Petersen said there are thousands of young people in the UK that are learning to ride at BHS Approved Establishments.
"One day, some of these riders will represent Great Britain at the Olympics. These Games have indeed inspired a generation," Ms Petersen was quoted as saying.
