77 Combinations took part in the 2016 Badminton Horse Trials which was celebrating 25 years of successful sponsorship with Mitsubishi Motors.
This year there was a clear favourite for the title in Germany’s Michael Jung riding his amazing horse La Biosthetique Sam - surely the best and most successful eventing combination of all time. They were going for the $350,000 Rolex Grand Slam after Michael won the 2015 Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials and the 2016 Rolex Kentucky 4 star, as well as the £80,000 first prize which was on offer at Badminton and they never had a moments worry as they outclassed their 76 rivals to post a record winning score, leading from start to finish.
This year’s DVD features the 20 min course walk with Lizzie Greenwood Hughes and Harry Meade followed by a 52 min highlights programme voiced by Mike Tucker. In addition Michael Jung’s and Emily King’s full dressage tests are separate chapters.
