agreed!! rider looked really disappointed :-( but can't blame him.
on a side note ~ ~ what do they do with all the "stuff" after the Olympics?? jumps, decorations, etc??
Spruce Meadow generally buys/gets a jump. Almost 100% sure its from the Olympics and not just a replica. The rest I'm sure some farm close to the games would be buying them or perhaps one of the big shows ( Hickstead??) in England.
