Livestream action brought to you by Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials gets underway HERE with the first horse inspection on Wednesday 2 May

The organisers of the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials 2018 are making footage of the event freely accessible to viewers around the world via its online livestream service once again this year. The livestream will be available to view here on the Horse & Hound website, as well as through Badminton’s own video channels.

Action from the first horse inspection on Wednesday, all the way through to the final presentation of awards on Sunday, will be available for eventing fans to enjoy, although Saturday’s cross-country phase and Sunday afternoon’s showjumping rounds and final presentations are going to be geoblocked in certain locations, including here in the UK.

UK viewers can look forward to the BBC broadcasting Sunday afternoon’s showjumping, as well as the cross-country on Saturday via its live streaming service, with cross-country and showjumping highlights available on BBC2.
