Vicky Sinnott and the lovley old Staks, who wouldn't stand a chance these days, bless.

Very nostalgic.

I wonder how the course would ride if they did a replica for 2010?!

What was that lady in the green colours on the lovely chestnut doing at the hollow?! She didn't jump the ditch did she?!

I have driven to my gran's to make sure I can watch it all in peace and with a proper picture, as my sattelite dish is rubbish at home! That's dedication, fighting the bank holiday traffic!

I agree sm153 I am suprised no one has heard of a coffin canter, why are they galloping at the coffin?! Madness

Some horrible horrible falls

Interesting seeing some young looking fences that are certainly not looking the same now

The falls look awful but there weren't very many injuries. I remember being there that year, it was bloody freezing!

I'm really enjoying it and hope that they show others from various years. I think it is great to see how things have evolved. Watching some of the famous names in the early days is very interesting. Would love to know what some of the lesser known names are doing now!

Can't say I am a fan of those riding boots that aren't very long, like Bruce Davidson and Mark Todd are wearing

Tina is so class isn't she,

Mark Todd is so amazing

You can say that again; he is The Master of them all!

Very proud to say a friend of mine bred Horton Point and their horseshoe plaque for him winning Badminton has pride of place in their kitchen.

Would be interesting to see if they could use that exact course again what the results would be this time; it was a proper course.

Agreed, and would be interesting to see if anyone now decides to use a coffin canter at the hollow...!
