The Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials, hosted in the Duke of Beaufort's Gloucestershire Park will be held during the Easter weekend for the first time in over 20 years. Awarded the most prestigious Event of the Year Award in 2010 by the International Equestrian Yearbook "L'Annee Hippique", visitors and participants are looking forward to another year to remember.
Hugh Thomas, Event Director and course designer said, "With Easter being as late as it ever can be, it is almost certainly a one off running over the Easter weekend, which is traditionally a great one for sport, so we look forward to being a part of it."
HRH Princess Haya Al Hussein, President of the International Equestrian Federation, will be attending this top international equestrian competition for the second time. HRH Princess Haya Al Hussein will be presenting awards during the final day of Trials with Mitsubishi Motors UK Managing Director, Lance Bradley and host, Duke Beaufort.
Every year the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials event chooses a special charity to represent. Cancer Research UK has been selected for the 2011 event held 21st April to 25th April 2011. The charity is delighted to be chosen for one of the most prestigious equestrian events in the world. Fund raising activities will accompany the entire event including a Cross Country obstacle to promote the Cancer Research UK charity.
The 3 day sporting event is a great day out for the entire family. The bank holiday weekend will entertain spectators and shopping enthusiasts with help from the Badminton shopping village. With over 250 stands, the famous brands and unique exhibitors attract a large audience of people from all over the world.
