Badminton Horse Trials
Dating back to 1949, Badminton Horse Trials has been hailed as "the most significant horse event in Great Britain". It is one of the most prestigious three-day events in the world and is part of the FEI Classics Series. The competition consists of dressage, cross-country, and show jumping phases, and attracts top riders from around the world. The event was first held in 1949 and has since become a highlight of the equestrian calendar. It is held in the grounds of Badminton House, the home of the Duke of Beaufort, and features a challenging cross-country course designed by renowned course designer Eric Winter. The competition consists of three phases: dressage, cross-country, and show jumping. In the dressage phase, horse and rider perform a series of prescribed movements in an enclosed arena. The cross-country phase involves riding over a challenging course of fences and natural obstacles across the park. Finally, in the show jumping phase, horse and rider navigate a course of brightly colored fences and obstacles in an arena.
