Mark Todd takes home the win at the Badminton Horse Trials

23 May 2011 No Comment

Former Olympic champion Mark Todd and his horse, NZB Land Vision, take home first place at the 2011 Badminton Horse Trials after an exciting finish. This was the fourth time Todd came home with the trophy, and is now the oldest winner in Badminton history. Mark finished at the top after the Cross Country with a clean round. He stated that NZB Land Vision "is still a relatively inexperienced horse. He felt pretty green in places and we had an anxious moment at the log in the bottom of the Quarry where he could have stopped, but he kept going and never stopped trying, which is the sign of a good horse." Piggy French riding Jakata, came in second, and Mary King, riding Imperial Cavalier was shortly behind in third. Yet another exciting year for the Badminton Horse Trials!
