Prince Andrew Visits Beijing

Prince Andrew attended a series of sport and industrial activities in Beijing this week, in order to raise the profile of Britain's equestrian experience in the run up to the 2008 Olympics.

He visited the Sheerwood Equestrian Club in Beijing, then attended the Chinese-British Riding Club National Accreditation Award Ceremony.

He is quoted as saying:

"We believe that this celebration is an opportunity to showcase China's progress in equestrian sports to a wider audience and serves as an example of successful Sino-British sport cooperation building up to the Beijing 2008 Olympics and beyond to London 2012."
