Former winner withdrawn from Badminton Horse Trials as event week dawns

Last year’s winner, Trisha Rickards’ and rider Jonelle Price’s Classic Moet, has been withdrawn from this week’s Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials (1-5 May).

New Zealand rider Jonelle said in a statement: “Sadly we have made the tough decision this morning to withdraw Classic Moet from Badminton Horse Trials. We have struggled with her feet in this unseasonably dry spring and it’s no secret she likes a bit of rain.

“I was very much looking forward to defending our title, but it’s obviously not meant to be this time around. Wishing all the competitors and connections the very best of luck, I’ll be there to cheer you all on! Tim — it’s all down to you to keep the trophy with Team Price now, no pressure.”
