Who had the little coloured horse? I thought it was one of the best looking horses Iv ever seen (even tho not normally the biggest fan on coloured horses!) :)
Oh YES!!! I loved this horse too......... would have been so nice to have had a coloured win Badders!!! But think they either had a fall or retired on course?

But for me: it has to be Beltane Queen. What a lovely sparky little mare, very scopey, brave & genuine.

I really liked the hunt horse that escorted one of the retired horses off the course. Can't remember who it was now but the hunt horse was a beautiful dark bay!

The coloured horse WAS Beltane Queen... :confused3:

And they complete the XC but did not present for the final trot up.

I loved King Eider - my mum said that's the only horse she'd ever consider letting her child go round badminton on haha! So cute and genuine.

And then also Beltane Queen and Matilda, both such keen little mares and great fun to watch, both riders looked as though they were having fun!

And Nereo is one of my favourite horses of all time so I can't forget him, such a shame it all went a bit wrong!

I loved Billy Beware, probably more for his build than anything - he certainly has a leg in each corner!!

Also, I don't think anyone has mentioned the winning mare!! Lovely horse and nice to see an irish-bred one win.
