Badminton Horse Trials 2012 announced as cancelled

Horse Deals is sorry to hear the news that 2012 Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials has been cancelled due to an extensive amount of rainfall in recent days.

The event that was due to feature top riders such as William Fox-Pitt, Mary King and more this weekend has taken the hard decision to cancel the event after the ground at Badminton had become waterlogged and partially flooded.

"Further rain is due this week leaving no chance of the ground drying out" advised Hugh Thomas, Event Director of the 5 day event.

"Very sadly therefore the 2012 Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials has been cancelled."

For those who were planning to be attending this weekend, he also added "Purchasers of advance tickets, exhibitors, sponsors and riders will of course be refunded as soon as it is practical."
