Sunday 23rd September 2018

by kind permission of His Grace The Duke of Beaufort and in aid of The Royal British Legion and the Beaufort Hunt.

Despite pouring rain spoiling the start of the day which meant that the numbers were down - at about lunchtime the rain had eased off and we still managed to attract around 400 riders to the 2018 Badminton Ride. With around 60 jumps placed around the Estate, riders were able to enjoy as a result of the rain, improved going and an opportunity to ride in this lovely setting and to raise funds for the Royal British Legion.

We received many appreciative comments...
  • "We had a fabulous ride and will definitely be back next year. Horse trials and all. Thanks to all involved"
