Showjumper Ben Maher hopes medals lead to equestrian boost
Essex showjumper Ben Maher hopes the success of Britain's team at London 2012 will give a major boost to equestrianism in the country.
Showjumping, eventing and dressage produced three gold, one silver and one bronze medals for Team GB.
"It's sad we don't get to keep the arena in Greenwich, it has to be returned to the park," said Maher.
"But hopefully a lot of children and adults can maybe aspire to what we've achieved and get involved."
Maher told BBC Essex: "You don't necessarily have to have your own horses, you don't even have to ride, you can do it at any level - you can work with the horses, you can work on them, there's a number of different ways to get involved.
