    Are they at least waiting until the paralympics is over?

    Or will it be at a different venue?

    It sounds like they're selling the kind of footing that was used in the stadium not THE footing itself. I could be wrong though.

    That doesn't seem to be all that expensive.

    It is mary king's custom colored barnsby xtreme event saddle. She is sponsered by them.
    I am on my phone 90% of the time. Please ignore typos, misplaced lower case letters, and the random word butchered by autocowreck.

    Olympic arena surface used at Greenwich for sale.

    Charlotte White, H&H deputy news editor
    14 August, 2012

    Fancy resurfacing your arena or gallops with an Olympic-grade surface or Polytrak? Then bargains may be had — but you need to move fast.
    The 10,000tonnes of Andrews Bowen surface used during the Olympics at Greenwich is being sold off after the Games.
    And Lingfield racecourse is selling off its Martin Collins surface in September.
    Andrews Bowen and Lingfield say they have had a large number of enquiries already, so anyone hoping to invest needs to be quick.
    Speaking before the first day of the equestrian competition at Greenwich, David Andrews of Andrews Bowen said: “We have two surfaces at Greenwich, our Prowax surface and the 2012, which we developed for the Games and have used in the main arena.
    “We have had a lot of interest from people who want to buy what will be an almost brand-new surface, but some is left.”
    Both surfaces will cost £100 per tonne second-hand.
    The 2012 surface — which FEI expert Professor Lars Roepstorff described as the “most consistent” he has ever tested — will be added to the Andrews Bowen range.

    I'd like to have those very cool dressage letters. Wonder what they will do with those?
