For the first time ever, the Horseware Ireland sponsored Badminton Radio service will be broadcasting live from the first horse inspection this Wednesday ahead of the 2016 Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials. In addition to hearing about this year’s international stars as they trot up, the Badminton Radio team will also be bringing us interviews from the winners of the inaugural Mitsubishi Motors Cup, a competition for riders at the grassroots level of the sport that culminates on the eve of the International competition.
Dressage commentary on Badminton Radio then continues from 8:30 on Thursday morning with Pammy Hutton and Carl Hester at the helm, then eventers Daisy Berkeley and Matt Ryan will be talking us through the Jumping phases on Saturday and Sunday.
Piggy French and Harry Meade will also be joining the Radio commentary team to offer up their views of this year’s competition as it progresses.
Listen live from Wednesday afternoon at 4:00 on 106.1 FM if you are in the local area or on-event by hiring a Badminton Radio head-set. Badminton fans in the UK and around the world can also tune into Badminton Radio online via the player on the audio section of our website.
The Radio team will also be sharing unique behind the scenes interviews with riders, spectators, exhibitors and key people who bring the event together in our daily Badminton Radio Podcast.
