If, like me, you unfortunately had to miss most of the Bicton five-star cross country yesterday never fear: you’ll be able to watch it on demand later with your purchase of a weekend pass on H&C. I definitely will find the time to go back and watch it, as it seems like a really fascinating study of cross country riding. After all, how often do you get to see veteran riders and five-star first timers alike tackle an entirely new course? A number of pairs said it was the toughest five-star terrain they’d ever tackled and one can see why just from the gifs that Sally captured during her live updates!

Sunday Video: Piggy and Pippa: a friendly rivalry and mutual admiration. We love to see it!
Every sport needs a bit of rivalry, in the sport of eventing we have some of the friendliest of rivals.
They're both reigning 5* Champions, they were 1,2 at Burghley, they were 1,2 after dressage yesterday, now they're in 1st and 3rd.
It's Piggy March and Pippa Funnell
