Joy Dawes is delighted to be at Badminton for the first time.
“I can see why riders rave about this event – having got here the atmosphere and stables are unlike that of any other three-day event.”
The riders were able to walk the cross-country course for the first time yesterday afternoon and Joy is looking forward to the challenge.
“Having never done a four-star before, this looks like a fabulous track,” says the 46-year-old, who finished 11th at Blenheim last year. “It’s one of those courses that looks like if you ride it right and come out attacking then it should give you a good feeling.”
Joy and Finnisterre will perform their dressage test at 12.10pm tomorrow.
