After a two-year break, the illustrious Badminton Horse Trials are back. With both the 2020 and 2021 events called off due to Covid, 3 Donkeys is pleased to see its return and get back out in the Wonky Wagon to start exhibiting again. So what’s Badminton all about and, apart from us being there, what should you be looking forward to?
The highlight of the season
Yes, the Badminton Horse Trials are back for 2022 and it’s really good to see the return of this prestigious 5-day event after its enforced break. Running from Wednesday 4th – Sunday 8th May in the grounds of Badminton House in Gloucestershire, this 5-star eventing competition is the highlight of the eventing season. Showcasing the best in horse dressage, show jumping, and cross country events, entrants from around the world compete for a total prize fund of a whopping £100,000.
The biggest change this year is that the event is operating on advanced ticket bookings only. This was decided on to ensure a faster entry into the event as well as an effective way to manage the expected 180,000 visitor numbers. So, with no tickets available on the day, head over to the Badminton website to get your tickets today.
3 Donkeys ladies coveralls on sale
Of course, as is customary at larger events, beyond the official competitions, there’s plenty to explore right across the five days. And that includes more than enough food, catering, and bars to keep you going as you make your way around the on-site shopping village, featuring over 500 trade stands, for some proper retail therapy.
If you’ve been keeping an eye out for anything particular, the chances are you’ll be able to find it here. Alongside art, home, and lifestyle goods, you’ll find plenty of gifts, jewellery, and gourmet food and wine. And being a horse trials event, there’s a huge range of equestrian goods on sale too. So among the tack, saddlery, feed, and equipment, you’ll find plenty of equestrian clothing – including 3 Donkeys!
Come and see us!
We’ll be making a splash at stand 33, Allengrove Avenue (at the opposite end of the site from the main arena) with all our flags, banners, and branding to make sure you can’t miss us. While our full range of 3 Donkeys ladies’ coveralls will be on sale, we’ll also be presenting our latest ‘Original’ ladies coveralls, together with plenty of our apparel and accessories, including hoodies, base layer, water bottles, mugs, and more.
We might even have some brand new apparel ready for you to check out as well, so make sure you come and find us to say hello! We’ll be open for business every day from 9.00 am across the whole event and we’re really looking forward to seeing everyone face to face again.
