Rio 2016 – Olympic games

Rio arenaNothing will be the same in organisation equestrian sport in the OG after London 2012. If we ask athletes, trainers, officials, spectator, majority would say it has been organised like never before. Organiser in Rio 2016 will have big job ahead. Fortunately, delegation visited WEG 2014 in Normandy, so they saw everything they should and should not have done on such a prestigious event.

Brazil will be host of four CDI3* in 2015, a bit less than previous years. Brazil is not in lack of experience in organising CDI4* event. In September 2011 they gathered real top class riders and horses on their soil in Rio de Janeiro. Winner was four times Olympic individual gold winner Isabell Werth this time with Warum Nicht FRH, scoring 76.700 in GP Freestyle. So, highest standards for Olympic athletes should be at least close to those in 2012. Since organizing team from London made great success, as rumors are spreading around, they will help with their know-how in Rio de Janeioro 2016
