Badminton Now Accepting Entries

Thumbs Up | Entries Are Open
Calling all Olympic eventing challengers from across the globe! Entries for the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials are now open. With next year's Olympics being hosted in London, this is possibly the most important Badminton we have seen for many years, even decades, as riders from all nations set out to prove to their selectors they have both the talent and the horse power to represent their country at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Britain is already host to numerous foreign riders, but this year in particular we can expect to see a further ground swell from abroad as campaign trails towards London 2012 build momentum. The entire New Zealand team has already declared their intention to camp in the UK for the coming year, and team coach Erik Duvander is due to arrive next week, followed closely by Jock Paget and Clark Johnstone. A number of riders from the Canadian WEG silver medal team have also declared their intention to include Badminton in their plans, and we can expect to see Hawley Bennett-Awad return for her second run around the deer park, having successfully debuted in 2007.
No doubt several other nations will start to reveal their campaign plans over the coming weeks, and we are hoping to see last year's winner, Paul Tapner return, this time on Kilfinnie. One thing is for certain, the best of the best will be heading to Badminton in April, so it will be a great year to attend. Book your tickets online

Entries close at 1200 GMT Thursday, 3rd March, 2011
