A must for all horse lovers.. Jun 22, 2011
Badminton Horse Trials is the biggest equestrian event in the UK and one of the biggest in the world. It is set on the grounds of the Badminton estate, with Badminton house the scenic backdrop for the trials.

The trials are set over three main days covering dressage, cross country and show jumping. In order for the riders to win they must compete and do well in each of the three events.

I went on the cross country day and I'd say it was probably the best of the three days to go! You will be able to see riders go round a long course scattered with thirty impressive jumps. Some of them look far too big for horses to get over but they seem to manage it! For this reason it is well worth the watch as each jump is fairly unique!

There are also other things to do here with various market stalls selling foods and goods! One issue I would have is with the cost as it is quite expensive for entry but it also quite expensive for parking! However, I think if you go on a really nice day then the money will definitely be worth it!
