Badminton – Leading the way and stepping up to the plate

Recently I leveled a direct criticism at all of the Four Star Events as NOT one included any in depth information of any kind on their website as to the safety devices used on their XC course.  My premise was that as the Four Stars, riders and other event organisers look up to them so seeing that a 4* is doing it would help promote to others to do more too.  Only one event responded to my criticism and in fact, they promised to do something about it.

That event was Badminton and last night I received this live to the story, where Badminton Director Hugh Thomas talks about safety.  I applaud Badminton, for taking the lead, I will also be preparing a story on the safety utilised at Adelaide last week.

Thank you Hugh and thank you to Monty White, who produced the video.

This is the full story on the Badminton Blog, and below is the interview with Hugh Thomas

Adelaide again

During the last few days, I spent my time working for John at Eventing Nation reporting on the Adelaide Horse Trials or the Australian International Three Day Event.  I had a fantastic time and managed to pump out 11 stories in total.  I am not going to do a recap, although I will, later this week do an article on the safety initiatives at the event.  These are my stories, all of them from the last to the first.
