  • 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.

    Sophie Christiansen, Team GB Paralympic Gold Medal Dressage

  • 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.

    Will Connell MBE, GBR Equestrian Team Leader

  • As the dust begins to settle on RWHS 2016 & HMQ90 I just wanted to pass on a personal thank you for everything that you did individually and the part your teams played in this years double event.

    Thank you for making it an event to remember forever and my role within the project a lot less challenging and stressful than it could have been.
