It’s that time of year again – we’re just weeks away from Badminton Horse Trials. For many equestrians, it’s a much anticipated event in the events calendar, with visitors coming from all over the world to attend.
Badminton Horse Trials was first held in 1949 and has grown in popularity over the years, now welcoming an estimated 200,000 visitors each year. It has certainly become a favourite show of ours!
This year’s event takes place from 4th – 8th May 2023 and accommodates the King’s Coronation. Each day will be filled with high-level competition and incredible shopping, with over 500 retailers attending.
You’ll find us in the same area as last year – 56 Swangrove Street. We’re situated just up from the Ariat big screen and close to the lake. We’ll have plenty of PolyPads (of course!) and will be joined by sister brand, Comfort Zone Equestrian. You’ll find great deals across both ranges in a variety of colours and styles. We’ll also be offering free delivery on any products ordered at the show, so be sure to pop in and see us!
Last year’s popular choices were the Classic, the Premier PolyPad and the Jump Forma. We’re bring all of these products back for the 2023 event. You’ll also be able to see our new colour, Olive, in person. It really is something special and looks amazing when paired with the Gold Braid (Navy) binding.
Badminton tickets must be pre-booked and can be purchased here.
