Five things you didn’t know…

1 He has been to seven consecutive Badmintons (2005-11), six Burghleys (2003-11), one Olympic Games (Beijing, 2008) and one World Equestrian Games (Aachen, 2006).
2 He was bred by Ted Walsh (jump jockey Ruby’s father).
3 Ed isn’t warmed up before the dressage at events, as it makes him tense – he goes straight from the lorry or stable into his test.
4 Two people, one on either side, are needed to escort him back to his stable after the cross-country at an event as he gets so feisty.
5 He is the highest British Eventing point scorer of all time – he has 2,203 points.
