With last year’s victors Jonelle Price and Classic Moet not defending their title this year, we look at some of remaining British bred contenders who we hope can keep British breeding in the headlines.

Badminton Contenders 2018

Any serious eventing breeder dreams of seeing a homebred horse gallop past Badminton House on cross country day, and for the lucky few listed below, that dream will come true this weekend.

Badminton Horse Trials SHB(GB) Stallion Parade

Following the conclusion of the main horse trials dressage, the Sport Horse Breeding of Great Britain stud book organised a stallion parade of 9 of their graded stallions.

The stallions all paraded around the main ring together and then individually showed their basic paces in the dressage arena and then jumped over a fence in the adjoining area. There was only half an hour for the whole parade and so it was hard to watch each stallion both on the flat and over a fence, but there were certainly some interesting stallions for eventing breeders.
