BADMINTON 2016: XC Gallery

If ever there was an emotional rollercoaster, we were riding it today. We all know this sport can eat you up and spit you right back out but it also unites, conquers and rewards and we witnessed that today by the bucket load.

We wish every rider had galloped home safe and sound, inside the time and were celebrating tonight in the lorry park but that is never going to happen. There were some nasty falls today and our thoughts go out to the combinations who took the long route home.

To those who galloped into the arena, however weary and drunk on elation, we salute you. This has been an extraordinary few days and the best is yet to come.
