Livestream action brought to you by Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials gets underway HERE with the first horse inspection on Wednesday 3 May

For the first time this year, the organisers of the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials are making footage of the event freely accessible to viewers around the world via its online livestream service. 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 the cross-country phase and final showjumping rounds are going to be geoblocked in certain locations, including here in the UK.
