Badminton Horse Trials
Badminton Horse Trials is one of the toughest and most exciting events in the equestrian calendar - the pinnacle of the world’s 3-Day-Events. As the name suggests horses and riders complete the competition over 3 days, each day consisting of a different discipline or phase. Horses and riders must complete a dressage test demonstrating Obedience, Discipline, Accuracy and Elegance. They need to be fit and athletic to complete a 4 mile cross country ride jumping solid man-made and natural obstacles within a set time. Finally they must complete a course of show-jumps designed to test their agility and accuracy at speed.
Badminton is a small village in Gloucestershire in the Cotswolds, just 5 miles from The Manor House and The Castle Inn, around a 15 minute drive away from the beautiful village of Castle Combe, so why not stay with us and save the date for a very exciting day out?
