  • The stables were excellent and real Olympic Gold Medal Standard.

    I would be happy to house my Paralympic champion in them anytime or permanently. Woodhouse and LOCOG showed the world that the temporary accommodation of horses could be of the highest standard.

  • 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.
