  • The BE90 Mitsubishi Motors Cup cross-country course at Badminton was 3,150m in length in 2019. The optimum time was seven minutes, with horses required to travel at 450m/min, which 39 combinations from 99 starters achieved by jumping clear inside the time (39%). Fifty-nine competitors managed a clear cross-country jumping round — 60% of starters.
