Full draw revealed for Badminton Horse Trials: Pippa Funnell to be pathfinder

  • Pippa Funnell will be the pathfinder at this year’s Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials (1-5 May 2019), riding MGH Grafton Street, Majas Hope or Billy Walk On.

    The draw was broadcast on Facebook Live at 2pm today (15 April), with double Badminton winner Mary King and this year’s technical delegate Marcin Konarski pulling out the numbers and Rupert Bell compèring.

    Tina Cook will be second out on course, with either Star Witness or Calvino II, while Emma Hyslop-Webb will make her Badminton debut as the third rider to start.

    All horses were given a number, which run from one to 107, even though there will be a maximum of 85 starters.

    Pippa Funnell, Tina Cook, Tim Price and Oliver Townend still have more than two horses entered, but each rider can only start on two mounts so will have to narrow down their selection. The draw has been done in such a way that they will definitely have one horse at the start and one at the end of the competition, as do all the other two-horse riders.

    There are still 13 horses on the Badminton waiting list. These replace pairs who withdraw up until 2pm on the Sunday before the event.
