'Disappointment' that Badminton Horse Trials is off


Damned rain. So disappointing Badminton Horse Trials is off. Huge shame for the riders, esp @foxpitteventing going for the Rolex bonus.


Wow, I am shocked that Badminton has been cancelled but pleased that safety and welfare is being put before money. http://t.co/mg72OTYP


Devastated Badminton Horse Trials has been cancelled, stupid English weather!
