The H&H team at Badminton kick off their chat by discussing the action from cross-country day.
“She really did have to ride and was held on course for a period due to another problem” – Pippa Roome on the cross-country leader’s round
The team then highlight some of those not in the top few after the cross-country phase that impressed.
“He was 58th after the dressage, but after Tokyo people said he was on the best cross-country horse in the world and he said it was up to him not to mess it up and today they looked absolutely class” – Martha Terry on one combination who impressed, but who aren’t in the top five following the cross-country
We then discuss our thoughts on the cross-country course as a whole and how it rode.
“I think it was a good course and the faults were well-spread and the horses that went well grew in confidence, but I think there were too many horse falls” – Pippa Roome on how she felt the course rode
The team then share some of their predictions ahead of the final day of competition, which concludes tomorrow (8 May).
“Laura has a 4.7 penalty buffer and he’s a pretty good jumper” – Gemma Redrup on her thoughts ahead of tomorrow and the potential final leaderboard
