The London 2012 Organising Committee (LOCOG) has appointed the team to build the Cross Country course for the Equestrian Eventing competition, taking place at Greenwich Park.The course will be built by London Eventing – a consortium made up of some of the most respected horse trials course builders in the UK. Between them, Jonathan Clissold, Adrian Ditcham, Andrew Hunter and Scott Brickell are responsible for the cross country tracks at numerous British Eventing one day events; a selection of international events; and one of the world’s leading four star courses at Burghley Horse Trials.
They will support LOCOG’s Equestrian Manager Tim Hadaway and Course Designer Sue Benson by developing plans for and building the Cross Country courses for the Test Event in 2011 and the Games themselves in 2012.
Jonathan Clissold, project manager for London Eventing said: “We look forward to working with the London Organising Committee. This is a stunning venue and we can’t wait to develop a course that will showcase Greenwich and its unique heritage.”
