Following the Government’s COVID-19 public health restrictions and its statement that emergency services are withdrawn from supporting mass gatherings from Tuesday, March 17, we are sorry to announce it is no longer possible to stage Badminton Horse Trials May 6-10 in any capacity. This cancellation also includes the Science Supplements Cup.
This is an unprecedented and challenging time for everyone and the health and safety of all those that attend and are involved with Badminton remains our number one priority. Please be assured that Badminton Horse Trials operates a refund policy and we will be in contact shortly with more information on how these will be processed accordingly.
We apologize for the delay in making this announcement but are grateful to our insurance brokers and underwriters for their support and cooperation at this busy time. Badminton Horse Trials would like to take this opportunity to thank and wish all of the athletes (human and equine), sponsors, exhibitors, supporters, and volunteers well through this challenging time. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to the 2021 event.
