Today’s top five suggestions of what you should do at Badminton today are:
1. Watch the defending champions
Sam Griffiths and Paulank Brockagh do their dressage test at 10.18am.
2. Visit the Chatham marine clothing stand
at 2.30pm where William Fox-Pitt will be doing a signing.
3. Don’t miss the Kingsland Equestrian dressage display
at 12.30pm in the main arena. Isobel Wessels, a FEI 5* dressage judge and UK List 1 judge organises this, using her pupils as riders.
4. Don’t forget to buy your Badminton radio
– make sure you don’t miss a moment of the dressage commentary, plus post test interviews, all straight into your earpiece.
5. Walk the cross country course
beat the Saturday crowds by getting a good walk of the course ahead of the big day – and almost certainly see several competitors studying the fences and working out their lines.
