Olympic equestrian surface up for sale after the Paralympics
Tuesday 14 August 2012
If you are looking to resurface your arena then you are in luck my friend as there may be a bargain to be had. The entire surface that was used during the Olympics at Greenwich is being sold once the Paralympics are over.
That means that there is 10,000 tonnes of Olympic-grade, Andrews Bowen surface up for grabs so, if you are interested you had better get in there quickly.
Lingfield racecourse will also be selling off its Martin Collins surface in September.
There are two surfaces at Greenwich Park, one of which is a Prowax surface and the other is the 2012 surface which was developed specifically for the games.
There is, according to the Horse and Hound, plenty of interest in the surface, which is almost brand new, but there is still plenty left for sale.
Both surfaces are costing just £100 per tonne and they have pretty much only been ridden by Olympic standard competitors, so there is a little bit of sentimental value in there too.
FEI expert Professor Lars Roepstorff described the 2012 surface as the “most consistent” he has ever tested, and it will now be added to the Andrews Bowen range.
