JUMPS, falls, crowds and stalls – watch how the Badminton Horse trials cross country event played out on Saturday.

There was plenty of drama for both riders and spectators as just 35 out of the 77 starting combinations managed to complete Guiseppe Della Chiesa’s new course, and not a single rider managed to finish close to the optimum time.

The new-look cross country course, coupled with strong winds and showers, made for a very challenging cross country day at the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse trials.

One unlucky rider captured was Sarah Stretton who fell at the 13th fence but seemed to be unhurt.
