‘It’s very clever’: find out what riders make of the 2019 Badminton cross-country track

Find out what some of the world’s top event riders, such as Pippa Funnell, Tina Cook and Nicola Wilson make of this year’s Badminton cross-country course

So you will have to ride with feel and be positive with the horses.”
