Badminton Horse Trials is one of the toughest and most prestigious equestrian events in the world. Held in the beautiful grounds of the Badminton Estate, the 11th Duke of Beaufort's family home in South Gloucestershire, the event comprises three phases – dressage, show jumping and tackling the world-famous Badminton cross country course. Entrants travel from far and wide to compete, with this year's entries including many Olympic riders, among them Sir Mark Todd, Andrew Nicholson, Nicola Wilson, Michael Jung, Gemma Tattersall, Andrew Hoy and Kristina Cook.
