The trot up at Badminton has become a great way for people to see what’s hot and what’s not so hot in the world of equestrian style. From the slightly way out and creative looks through to traditional with a twist. This part of the competition has gained a huge following on social media and in person at Badminton in recent years.
Hiho Silver is sponsoring the trot up at this year’s Badminton Horse Trials and will see Hiho’s Andrew Ransford work with Badminton’s team to judge the best dressed male and female rider at the first trot up. “We’re so excited to be working with Badminton Horse Trials and sponsoring the best dressed rider at the trot up,” said Andrew Ransford from Hiho Silver. “Hiho has been coming to Badminton with its tradestand for years, and we love the whole competition," said Andrew Hansford from Hiho Silver. "We love the style of the trot up and wanted to get involved, to celebrate equestrian fashion at its finest. For both male and female riders- who can forget Paul (Tapner) and Ben’s (Hobday) sharp suits from last year?”
Each of the selected ‘best dressed’ riders will win a piece of Hiho Silver jewellery to reward their winning style sense.
"Since the horse inspections have been relocated to the front of the House they have become a great public spectacle and a veritable fashion parade for the riders," says Julian Seaman, Media Director for Badminton Horse Trials, "Hiho Silver's sponsorship of a male and female 'best dressed' is great fun."
