It was cross country at the Badminton Horse trials in Gloucestershire today.Around 150 thousand people attended one of the biggest equestrian events in the country.
Organisers say they were lucky with the weather with the sun shining a lot more than they'd feared. Harry Meade based near Chippenham came third. Paul Tapner, riding for Australia but based near Swindon came fourth.
Riders from all over the world have descended on Gloucestershire for the first day of the Badminton horse trials.
They include Olympians like Mary King, William Fox-Pitt and Zara Phillips. Today they'll get a briefing about this year's course and the chance to walk it themselves. Many of the competitors will be hoping for selection for the World Equestrian Games this summer.
More than a hundred and fifty thousand people are expected for the three day Badminton Horse Trials. Organisers of the event at the Badminton Estate in South Gloucestershire hope the weather will be kinder this year. Last year it was cancelled due to torrential rain. Rebecca Broxton reports.
