Badminton Horse Trials 2012 cancelled due to heavy rainfall
The 2012 Mitsubishi Badminton Horse Trials have been cancelled due to heavy rain falling in recent weeks.
The organisers of the event have issued a statement this morning (30 April) saying: "The recent exceptional rainfall has left the ground at Badminton totally waterlogged and partially flooded.
"Further rain is due this week leaving no chance of the ground drying out.
"Very sadly therefore the 2012 Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials has been cancelled."
Sponsors and riders are set to be refunded “as soon as it is practical” as are exhibitors and spectators who have already bought advance tickets.
This is the first time that Badminton has been cancelled due to weather conditions since 1987.
