FEI president hails 'best ever Olympics'
FEI president HRH Princess Haya described the equestrian events at London 2012 at 'incredible'
London 2012 has been hailed as "the best ever" Olympics for equestrian sport.
British riders topped the equestrian medal table, winning showjumping and dressage team gold, while Charlotte Dujardin was also crowned individual dressage champion, Laura Bechtolsheimer won a bronze in the same competition and Britain's eventing team took silver.
HRH Princess Haya, president of the Federation Equestre International, said: "The London 2012 equestrian events were really incredible and Greenwich was a wonderful venue.
"We could not have wished for better sport, and we now have a whole new fan base, which has to be the best legacy we could ask for.
"We owe a huge debt of thanks to the whole LOCOG team, but particularly to the equestrian competition manager Tim Hadaway and venue general manager Jeremy Edwards and their teams for all their devotion to the cause, and, of course, to all the wonderful volunteers.
"These were the best Games ever for equestrian sport."
