I know gates open at 6.30 but what time do horses start on course?? Anyone?

First horse starts at 11.00.

My horse Wii Limbo is competing so keep an eye out for him! Fingers crossed he does a safe round. I'm camping which could be rather wet!

Great- thanks.Oh fab!! Are you riding him? What time is he due to start?
Can't wait- think weather meant to dry up a bit??

Good luck DENMAN03 Does anyone know if it is televised?

No I don't ride him! He is ridden by Georgie Spence.. They finished a very credible 36th place. One run out on the cross country and some time faults, and one time fault but otherwise clear in the show jumping! Im thrilled and he is aiming for Badminton next year.

Sadly the tent didn't fair so well. It seemed to be lacking in the waterproof department ( it was rather old) and everything got soaked! Had to buy some jumpers to stay warm. Apart from that a brilliant weekend.

Wow! Well done to your horse! Fab!
My dd fav horse that day was ur horse!!!
Shame about your tent but it was very wet! Good luck for badminton next year- I'm sure he can do it!

Well thank you! We are all very pleased with how he went. Just got a bit strong and ran past the corner but lots were having problems! He can definitely jump the fences that's for sure!

Yes the tent is festering at the bottom of a skip at Blenheim still!! I have booked a motorhome for Badminton. I can usually cope well camping but all our clothes got soaked so I wore the same things for three days! Nice..he he.

Haha! Needs must-I'm sure only your nearest & dearest knew you were wearing same clothes!
Well done to him he did very well!! My dd did her best to
Get photos of him going over 2numps by sprinting across the field!
