The entry list for the 2017 Mitsubishi Motors Badminton CCI4* has just been released, and we’re excited to see a big North American contingent represented this year.
Eighty-five horses with the most points in international competition have been accepted with 36 more on a waitlist. Only a maximum of 85 horses will ultimately compete, but more are shown on the accepted list because of double entries and riders who have entered multiple horses.
Hannah Sue Burnett and Harbour Pilot
Katherine Coleman and Longwood
Lauren Kieffer and Landmark’s Monte Carlo
Lauren Kieffer and Veronica
Lynn Symansky and Donner
Elisa Wallace and Simply Priceless
Rebecca Howard and Riddle Master
The waitlist includes Bunnie Sexton (USA) and Rise Against, 13th; Kathryn Robinson (CAN) and Let it Bee, 16th; and on the waitlist, and Holly Payne Caravella (USA) and Never Outfoxed (18th).
Fourteen nations will be represented in this year’s competition. Michael Jung’s sole entry is La Biosthetique Sam FWB, with whom of course he won Badminton 2016. With Jung looking to defend his title amid an entry list stacked to the roof with the world’s best horses and riders, this year’s edition should be especially intense!
Badminton 2017 takes place May 4-7. Learn more or purchase tickets by visiting the website here.
