I was just on Facebook and saw a post from horse junkies untied saying badminton has been cancelled! Something about the ground being too wet I think

Equestrianism; 10% luck, 20% skill, 15% concentrated power of will, 5% pleasure, 50% pain and 100% reason to remember you're absolutely insane to be riding a beast that big.

Yes, it is official. Badmington Horse Trials are over before they started in 2012

yep, According to a friend who lives fairly close say at least half the XC course is under water. Unfortunatly thats what happens when you have a months worth of rain in 1 day and it continues raining for 2 weeks afterwards! (bare in mind we are in the UK so wet is normal for us).

my horse hasnt had turnout for nearly a week as our fields are under 6 inches of water

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

British Weather Sucks!

Yep real shame about Babminton. Curse this wet spell we're having it's ruining everything!! Still on a plus not only a couple of months to wait until I get to see the Olympic teams perform at Barbury!!!

Bramham is before Barbury.
I have season tickets for Bramham.
I'm also going to get a season ticket for Burghley

I was about to inform those who had thoughts of going to Badminton that it had been cancelled. Thank goodness others had posted it sooner than I.
