Three top event horses retire at Badminton

Headley Britannia, Inonothing and Lenamore looked fabulous in their joint retirement ceremony at Badminton Horse Trials

Former Badminton Horse Trials winners Headley Britannia and Inonothing were joined by Burghley Horse Trials champion Lenamore for a public farewell in the main arena at the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials on Monday 7 May.

Accompanied by commentary from Ian Stark, the three elite eventers enjoyed a emotional lap of honour (pictured), before having their saddles removed and being led from the arena in front of their adoring fans.

All three horses looked in excellent condition and belied their ages, with 20-year-old Lenamore requiring two grooms to contain his exuberance as he left the arena.
