The Mitsubushi Motors Cup

The Mitsubishi Motors Cup offers ‘amateur’ riders the chance to qualify throughout the season and all over Great Britain for Badminton in early May. The setting of Badminton House and the excitement generated by being part of the foremost Three Day Event in the world give these Championships (formerly the Mitsubishi Motors Grassroots Championships) a very special feeling, while riders, owners, family, friends and officials all contribute to a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere – and all the famous event’s tradestands are open for retail therapy!

The Last Word...

Pretty self explanatory – you get to compete at actual Badminton!! This event is the culmination of months of hard work, and just to be there making up the numbers is amazing. The atmosphere being amongst all the other competitors & stabling on site is incredible, and you really do have to pinch yourself when you cross over the road to the XC and walk past the signs welcoming you to Badminton Horse Trials. The XC course is a real ‘mini-Badminton’, and this event surely deserves a place on the bucket list of any grassroots rider.
