Organisers have been forced to cancel the Badminton Horse Trials because of the recent heavy rain. They were run from Thursday to Monday. The event director Hugh Thomas says
"The recent exceptional rainfall has left the ground at Badminton totally waterlogged and partially flooded. Further rain is due this week leaving no chance of the ground drying out.
