The Hong Kong Olympic Equestrian Venue (Sha Tin) has been completed and handed over to the Equestrian Company. Officiating at the handover ceremony on May 26, Chief Secretary Henry Tang said a host of factors have been taken into consideration when designing the venue, including horse training, transport, laboratory tests and waste recycling. The facilities can also cope with adverse weather conditions.
International equestrian experts have hailed the venue's design and facilities, he noted. The Equestrian Company will ensure the venue's functions are used to their fullest extent and the equestrian events will run smoothly.
The Jockey Club will also work closely with the company and offer professional advice in stable management, horse management, transport and quarantine work.
