About The Badminton Ride

Ride around the iconic Badminton Park, home of the 4 Star Badminton Horse Trials.

Last year attracted over 400 riders who took advantage of the excellent going due to early morning rain to tackle the 60 jumps and help raise £2000 for the Royal British Legion. This year we are supporting the Avon Riding Centre for the Disabled .

Equine Influenza

Following a review of Ride policy in response to updated information on the equine influenza situation, and following recent advice from a local vet and in line with other similar events, The Badminton Ride now requires all horses entering the Ride to have had an equine influenza vaccination within 6 months of the date of the Ride (22nd September 2019), so to have been vaccinated on or after 22nd March 2019.  

This policy affects all horses coming to the event for any reason.  Please bring all entrants’ horse passports or vaccination certificates with you, and expect these to be subject to spot check on arrival at the gate.  If your horse is found to not be correctly covered, it plus any others on the same transport will, with regret, be turned away and not be allowed to enter the site or take part in the Ride.

We do hope you understand the reason for this review, and that you agree that we should do all we can to protect the health of every horse that enters.  Those riders who have already entered the Ride online but who do not have vaccinated horses, and who still want to take part in the Ride, now have over 5 weeks in which to get their horses vaccinated and the paperwork in order.
