The Badminton Horse Trials social media team has been treating us to some throwback videos of past winners on cross country. If you missed the recent release of William Fox-Pitt and Chilli Morning’s winning round, click here to watch it.
This week, we have two more winner’s rounds for you to relive from the archives: Michael Jung’s 2016 win with La Biosthetique Sam as well as Andrew Nicholson’s win in 2017 aboard Nereo. These two legends of the sport will most certainly never be replaced, and it’s a privilege to have seen rides such as these during these two incredible horses’ careers. Enjoy!
This week our Wednesday lunchtime video treat is the 2017 winner's cross country round – a brilliant round featuring an all-star commentary team to boot! Partnered with Nereo, Andrew Nicholson finally won his first #BadmintonHorseTrials title after 36 attempts. What a performance it was and made for a truly memorable Badminton.If you want to come and witness the incredible atmosphere of Badminton for yourself this year, make sure you buy your tickets before our Early Bird Discount ends at the end of March.

Last week we shared William Fox-Pitt Eventing's fantastic 2015 cross country performance with Chilli Morning.Today's Wednesday lunchtime treat is a return to German rider Michael Jung's 2016 storming cross country round with La Biosthetique-Sam FBW.They went on to jump a superb clear in the final Show Jumping phase to not only secure the Badminton trophy, but also the ROLEX Gram Slam – the most valuable prize in Eventing – for consecutively winning Burghley, Kentucky and then Badminton Horse Trials. Not only is it wonderful to watch 'Michi' and Sam's breathtaking round but it is lovely to hear the wonderful voice of our much missed friend, Mike Tucker.
