Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials 2018 Was £21.99 now £4.99 Price: £4.99 Relive the excitement at the 2018 event as the world's best competed for the iconic trophy.
The 2018 Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials saw a new Dressage scoring system introduced whereby the coefficient was dropped so this resulted in the Dressage scores being not nearly so influential. Oliver Townend was going for the Rolex Grand Slam after his wins at Burghley and Kentucky and led the Dressage on his Burghley winner Ballaghmor Class.
With beautiful weather suddenly breaking out over Badminton Park on the Saturday record crowds witnessed a dramatic cross country day, with the speed machine Classic Moet and Jonelle Price the only combination to get near the optimum time on very holding ground to draw level on points with Townend and Ballaghmor Class and into the lead with her better time. She then produced an immaculate clear on the Sunday on her flying thoroughbred to secure her first Badminton title, the first woman to win since 2007.

Eighty three combinations from fourteen Nations contested the 2014 running of the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials with five previous winners in the line-up. The main talking point was new course designer Giseppe Della Chiesa's cross country test which had "big" written all over it. Most riders and pundits were very complimentary after walking it as innovation had been well balanced with tradition to provide a very imposing but fair test. However after overnight rain two jumping efforts were taken out leaving thirty numbered fences and forty one jumping efforts but few could have foreseen how influencial the cross country would be on the final outcome as wind rain and testing underfoot conditions all played their part in adding to the fearsome jumping test . Comprehensive cross country coverage is sandwiched between the best of the dressage and an extraordinary showjumping finale that made this a Badminton that will be talked about for many years to come.
With 3rd placed Harry Meade in the expert commentator's chair this 2 hour programme is a comprehensive review of this thrilling event and a must for all eventing enthusiasts.

Burghley Horse Trials 2013 Was £16.99 now £4.99 Price: £4.99 This year's big question centred on how 67 partnerships from 11 countries would manage the newly designed 'Start and Finish' of Captain Mark Phillips' cross country test: in particular the intensity of the first five minutes. In the dressage phase it was Jonathan 'Jock' Paget and Clifton Promise who set the pace, with Ingrid Klimke with FRH Butts Abraxxas on their Burghley debut attracting less than 40 penalty points. William Fox-Pitt in fourth place, led the British challenge on his 2011 Burghley Champion Parkland Hawk. The final day brought early disappointment for Jonathan Paget having to withdraw but with one showjumping fence in hand over both Andrew Nicholson and William Fox-Pitt, the overnight leaders still had the chance to emulate Ginny Leng and Master Craftsman, the last horse and rider partnership 24 years earlier in 1989 to win both Badminton and Burghley in the same season.

Eventing, or Horse Trials as it is also known, is the ultimate equestrian test. Its foundations were in the Cavalry schools of Europe at the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Initially it was only open to male officers, but soon developed into an Olympic sport where men and women compete on equal terms.
The format has evolved over the years, but the sport tests the skills of Dressage (effectively basic training), Cross Country, over a course of solid obstacles and hazards such as ditches and lakes and Jumping, over knock down, coloured poles. The top competitions are Three Day Events and include such well known sporting spectaculars as Badminton and Burghley, where crowds can reach up to 120,000. Many of the venues, especially in Great Britain, are in beautiful stately parks.
Little Book of Eventing reveals the history, introduces the reader to some of the great stars human and equine over the years, the charismatic trainers and some of the best known venues.
