Take a sneaky peek at the first pictures from this year’s Mitsubishi Motors Cup cross-country course

In a little under three weeks, the 2019 Mitsubishi Motors Cup will take place in the stunning grounds of Badminton House (30 April—1 May). Here, some of the country’s best eventing grassroots competitors will fight it out for the BE90 and BE100 championship titles, and the first pictures of what horses and riders can expect to find when they go cross-country have been released.

Now in its 10th year, the Mitsubishi Motors Cup cross-country course will be designed by James Willis. The CrossCountry App has published the full course photos, which show the fences clearly in the early stages of their development.
