Badminton like you've never experienced it before! 

Join last year's winner, Paul Tapner, in the saddle (so to speak!) as he talks us through his strategy, his thoughts, his excitement, and his dilemas of riding around the 2011 Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials cross country course.

Via the magic and technology of the helmet cam, Paul takes us through his cross country ride on Kilfinnie from this year's event, fence-by-fence, and  blow-by-blow with some fascinating insights into what it takes to ride Badminton.....

Badminton 2011 Winner Mark Todd | Win No.4 & The London Olympics

Mark Todd won his fourth Badminton this year, more than 30 years after winning his debut appearance in 1980. With more than 3 decades of experience at the top of the sport his achievements are truly legendary with back to back individual Olympic gold medals and 5 Burghleys added to his Badminton successes and ever burgeoning trophy cabinet.

After a brief spell in retirement, his resolve, self believe, and talent are as strong today as they've ever been. In this short interview Mark talks about his delight at winning another Badminton after his comeback, and his favoured horse for the London 2012 Olympics.
