  • I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you for everything you have done at Greenwich Park for London 2012.

    It has been a pleasure working with you and your team, and I would have no hesitation using Woodhouse again or recommending you to others. I think your stables are first class and you rightfully received great credit from athletes and grooms alike. Your approach throughout the design, installation, use and derig was great. Nothing was ever too much for you. Please pass on my thanks to the rest of your team.

    Stephen Jepson, Greenwich Park Venue Project Manager

  • The temporary stable barns designed by Woodhouse for the London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games were excellent and part of the success of the Games.

    The size of the stables, the width of the aisles and the quality of finish all contributed greatly to the horses’ comfort and safety.

  • Everything was great as usual, the staff were excellent when they came to put up and take down the stables. We will be booking again in the near future for 2015.
