Cancelled Badminton Grassroots Championships to be held next year
The cancelled 2012 Mitsubishi Motors Grassroots Championships will go ahead alongside the 2013 competition at next year's Badminton Horse Trials.
This year's finals had to be postponed after constant heavy rainfall meant the necessary groundwork required to stage it could not take place and as such wouldn't have been safe for competitors.
All of those that were due to compete at this year's championships will be contacted by British Eventing in the near future to ensure they are aware of the situation.
The rescheduled competition will be hosted as a separate class alongside the 2013 contest. Riders that qualify on the same horse will only be able to compete in one category.
Badminton's Hugh Thomas said the venue is looking forward to welcoming the bumper number of competitors next year.
"This solution will mean that no riders are denied the chance of taking part in an event at this iconic venue," he continued.
