Your Horse magazine took its fun, free, achievable #hack1000miles challenge to Badminton in May, where riders indulged in exploring the famous Gloucestershire estate, getting up close and personal with some of the CCI4* cross-country fences, galloping in front of the famous house and riding their horses through the Lake.
There were 50 riders taking part in all, each raising much-needed funds for the Avon Riding Centre for the Disabled, and every rider took home an exclusive #hack1000miles goody bags, courtesy of our sponsors SEIB, Dublin, Wintec, Baileys Horse Feeds and NAF.
A lot of fun was had by everyone, as the following video shows. The Your Horse team thoroughly enjoyed it too!
