Warning: These Badminton Fences May Be Larger Than They Appear

It’s hard to wrap your head around the enormity of the jumps on Badminton’s cross country course from photos alone. So, for the sake of scale, we gathered up some Instagram photos of the jumps WITH humans on or near them to get a better idea of their size.

Starting with this guy:

Went to Badminton Horse Trials today. My boss pretended to be bendy and blowing in the breeze over the new footbridge replacing the Vicarage V, while I gave a solid thumbs up behind her. Perks of having a British Olympic boss includes Badminton Course Walks, great selfies, Prosecco and shit loads of laughter. What an experience. She taught us so much while we walked with her, and I possibly couldn’t be more thankful for being able to work for such an exceptional person and rider. Amazing! I can’t wait to share a few shots of these ridiculous fences with you all #equestrian #badmintonhorsetrials #coursewalk #fourstar #eventer #eventing #eventersofinstagram #horse #xc #xccoursewalk #vicaragevee #insane #equine l
