The Badminton entries for 2024 have been released and despite everyone predicting they would be light this year in view of it being an Olympic year, it is a star studded field of horses and riders with 3 on the waitlist.

Tim and Vitali are the headline photos for the entry release on the Badminton website and both Vitali and Grappa Nera (Grape) feature on the Equiratings statistics breakdown.  It’s a fun read….but remember, when I asked Diarm at lunchtime in 2018 what the chances were of Molly and Jonelle holding their lead he shook his head and told me they hadn’t jumped clear at an FEI event since Hartpury 3 star in 2014.  Dreams do come true!
