Construction of the equestrian venues for the 2008 Olympic Games have finished on time in Hong Kong and the facilities are ready for testing, officials said on Saturday.
The next step for the venues, which will also house equestrian-affiliated services, are security checks and testing, the Hong Kong Jockey Club said.
Most Olympic competitions will take place in Beijing, but Hong Kong will host equestrian events between August 9 and 20.
The jumping and dressage program will be at Sha Tin, which houses Hong Kong's largest race course, while the cross-country competition will be at Beas River.
