Mary King currently heads the leaderboard after her cross-country round at the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials. She survived a few hairy moments, but came back with just 2.4pen with Imperial Cavalier. Paul Tapner and Stormhil Michael are currently lying in second and Andrew Nicholson and Nereo third.
Andrew said: “The course rode well. I deliberately started a bit carefully to keep some petrol in the tank, but I’m really pleased with him.”
Sian Wynne Morris has just posted the first clear inside the time with Just Appeal.
A few fences have been taken out of the course due to the wet ground: fences 5 and 6 in the quarry, plus fence 30, the second part of the double of angled logs at the penultimate, have been removed.
