Nicola Wilson at the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials

Suregrow's Nicola Wilson was thrilled with the performance from both of her horses at the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials and is excited for the future, ''Both horses, Annie Clover and Beltane Queen were doing their first 4* competition and are still only 10 years old and very inexperienced in comparison to the majority of the horses competing there and of course, in comparison to Opposition Buzz my long time 4* horse and European, World and Olympic Team Medalist'' says Nicola. 

The challenging 4* course was a test to these 2 inexperienced horses but they both did a fabulous job.

Annie Clover did her dressage test on the first day performing and coping very well. Unfortunately a mistake near the end left her with a mark of 50.

Beltane Queen performed her best dressage test to date finishing 13th. She then went on to be fabulous in the cross-country. Unfortunately she was caught out by a frangible pin that broke, resulting in a penalty fault of 21 being added to their score.

Beltane Queen is having a short holiday now and Annie Clover will be going on to compete in the Equi-trek CCI*** at Bramham International Horse Trials in June.
