MARS Badminton Horse Trials 2024
MARS Badminton Horse Trials 2024

It was a pleasing weekend for Zara and Class Affair (Socks) at the MARS Badminton Horse Trials.

82 horses started the prestigious event in Gloucestershire, with the dressage phase spanning two days, across Thursday and Friday.

Zara and Socks were drawn 15th to go on Thursday. Overall it was a good test, finishing on a score of 37.2.

Maintaining the drawn position of 15th, Zara and Socks set off around the cross country phase on Saturday morning, jumping a faultless round, albeit with some time penalties. The clear round in this phase helped to move them up into 19th position, ahead of the showjumping on Sunday.

Socks jumped a great round in front of a packed grandstand, for an unfortunate rail, heading into the double at fence 9, ending the competition on a final score of 59.6 and finishing in 16th place.

Classicals Eurostar (Casper) and Class Affair (Socks) made the trip to Norfolk to compete in the CCI-S 4* at the weekend.

Both horses went well in the dressage phase, with scores in the 30s, albeit a slightly disappointing score for Socks, before jumping double clears in the showjumping and cross country phases, finishing with minor time faults in the cross country.
