The BE100 Mitsubishi Motors Cup cross-country course at Badminton was 3,150m in length in 2019. The optimum time was six-minutes and 38 seconds, with horses riders required to travel at 475m/min, which 22 combinations from 74 starters achieved (30%). Forty-two competitors managed a clear cross-country jumping round — 57% of starters.
