BADMINTON HORSE TRIALS - Gallopy Gallopy Gallopy

Badminton. For those of you who are

new to the sport of Eventing,

Badminton is the number one

destination for all event riders.


From the very first day of competition

to the last Badminton provides

beautiful arenas for all 3 phases.


Be it the vet inspection in front of the

house to the winners parade after the

showjumping, this countryside estate

has it all.

Oh! And did I mention the shopping.


Being

 the first weekend in May the weather

can be changeable so best have good

foot wear and a coat in the car.


Facilities are good with so many food

outlets that cater for every need.


The first two day of competition can

get busy around the trade stalls but

nothing like the Saturday of XC.


Alway leave yourselves plenty of time

to get in and out of the event as the

local roads can get gridlocked.


Overall I just

love this competition which is why I go

for all four days. Sleep is not an

option.
