It was announced earlier today that due to recent bad weather, this year's Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials has been cancelled.

The event was due to take place this weekend, from May 3 to 7, but has been hit with exceptional rainfall over the past couple of days, causing the grounds at Badminton to become waterlogged and partially flooded.

Event director Hugh Thomas advised: "Further rain is due this week leaving no chance of the ground drying out.

"Very sadly therefore the 2012 Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials has been cancelled."

He added: "Purchasers of advance tickets, exhibitors, sponsors and riders will of course be refunded as soon as is practical."
