Hoof will make our vision to inspire people to choose sport a reality by helping people try out horse-riding and enjoy the benefits of this fantastic sport.
Not only this, but Hoof will leave a fantastic legacy for people in London. There will be a schools riding programme to provide opportunities for children to experience the benefits of riding for the first time. And a series of investments will be made to provide new - as well as improve existing - facilities for riding in the city.
This includes providing up to £200,000 towards the construction of a new facility in the London borough of Greenwich. Greenwich Council are about to initiate a feasibility study looking to establish the centre at a site on Shooter’s Hill, very close to the 2012 Games Equestrian venue, leaving lasting sporting, community and educational benefits.
The London 2012 Games will give us a real opportunity to make a difference to people’s lives and projects like Hoof are ensuring that we are well on our way to achieving this.
