Badminton Horse Trials cancelled due to poor weather
The 2012 Badminton Horse Trials have been cancelled due to the recent heavy rainfall. In a statement released earlier today by the organisers they confirmed that they have had to cancel the popular event due to the heavy rainfall in recent weeks.
The statement said "The recent exceptional rainfall has left the ground at Badminton totally waterlogged and partially flooded.
"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."

The news came as a surprise earlier today as the last time the trials were cancelled due to poor weather was over 20 years ago back in 1987.
Sandra Ellis from Bradley stoke said "it is a real shame that the horse trials have been cancelled, we have been to a number of them and was looking forward to attending this one too".
