This is totally fascinating!! How the Eventing has changed over the years!!
The Cross Country phase of Eventing has seen huge changes over the years, not least the loss of the roads & tracks and the steeplechase phases. As Badminton celebrates an important Anniversary year, let us take you back 50 years to re-live the Cross Country test from 1969 courtesy of Badminton’s interactive CrossCountry App providers who have produced a special commemorative version of this course.
This has been produced with fascinating archive video and photographs, plus audio from competitors and officials, it celebrates the achievement of Richard Walker who rode Pasha to win Badminton Horse Trials aged just 18 years of age. Richard is still the youngest winner of Badminton International Horse Trials and will be a special guest at this year’s event (1-5 May 2019).Follow us Share this
