Relive the excitement at the event as the world's best competed for the iconic trophy. This year's event saw 57 of the 81 combinations that set out on the 4 days of competition complete the Sunday afternoon as William Fox-Pitt secured his second Mitsubishi Motors Badminton trophy on Chris Stone's stallion Chilli Morning, 11 years after winning on Tamarillo. The Little Book of Badminton by Julian Seaman - "Badminton Horse Trials" is the world famous annual sporting event that tests the skills of the ultimate horse and rider. Its foundations were in the Cavalry schools of Europe at the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Initially it was only open to male officers, but soon developed into an Olympic sport where men and women compete on equal terms.

The year-old Wiltshire-based rider was lucky not to have been paralysed after a fall in and required eight hours of surgery on his neck. He held his nerve in the show-jumping phase on Nereo to edge out Germany's defending champion Michael Jung. Overnight leader Ingrid Klimke of Germany dropped from first to ninth.
The Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials is the premier three day event in the world and the best horses and riders battle to win the trophy. Many people arrive to watch the horses being presented in front of Badminton House, which provides a stunning backdrop to the proceedings. The first is the Dressage and this takes place on the Thursday and Friday and lasts throughout each day from dawn until dusk. It is very technical and the horses have to perform a set routine, which is marked by judges. Cross country day at Badminton Horse Trials is on Saturday and this is the most exhilarating part of the event, which is like a triathlon for horses.
