Horse sport fans are checking their bank balances with trepidation, hoping money has been taken for tickets to the equestrian events of next year’s Olympic Games.

Organisers LOCOG have confirmed that unless there are problems with individual credit or debit cards all successful ticket sales should be cleared by midnight tonight.

And some H&H readers are already reporting that they have managed to secure tickets — while inevitably others are disappointed.

A LOCOG spokesman said that applicants whose cards have been rejected will be contacted and arrangements will be made to try to take the money again.

All applicants will be told exactly what tickets they have secured by 24 June.

The Telegraph newspaper reported today that some tickets for showjumping sessions remain unsold but Locog would not confirm this.

“All we can say is that sales have gone very well of all the Olympic tickets,” a spokesman told H&H.

A second ballot of any unsold tickets will be held later in the year, said the spokesman, with those applicants unsuccessful first time around getting priority.
