CrossCountry App is thrilled to again partner with Badminton Horse Trials to create an interactive cross-country preview for the highly anticipated 2022 event, presented by Mars Equestrian.
Course Designer, Eric Winter, and six-time Badminton winner, Lucinda Green, expertly guide you around the cross-country phase of the competition.

The 2022 course features a number of big ditches, including a never-seen-before double of ‘Vicarage Vees’. Lucinda recalled the ‘old-school’ Badminton tracks she aspired to ride as a child which Eric has brought into this Badminton and she was absolutely thrilled.
Badminton Horse Trials Event Director Mrs Jane Tuckwell says: “We are delighted to be working with CrossCountry App again this year – it features all aspects of the 5* course and gives a true flavor of the challenge the riders will face.”
During the event, spectators at Badminton Park will be able to use the CrossCountry App to plan where to watch and find their way around the course with the GPS location button. The map will also provide useful venue information such as toilets, first aid and food.
The interactive course map can be viewed on the Badminton Horse Trials website here or here.
