EVENTING  followers only have a short time left to buy advance tickets for this year’s Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials.

Advance booking for personal admission, car passes and the campsite closes on Monday, April 24.

However, spectators can still pay for admission on the gate when the event is running, although prices will be higher.

Thousands of people are set to head for the prestigious event in May to see many of the world’s best riders and horses in action.

This year’s international could also be a pointer for selection for teams heading to the European eventing championships in Poland in August.

The 2017 cross-country course is being designed for the first time by Eric Winter after Giuseppe Della Chiesa announced after the completion of the 2016 trials that he was standing down from the position after just three years.

Mr Winter used to live in Yatton, near Bristol, before taking on Severnvale Equestrian Centre, Chepstow, with his wife, Lizzel.

Badminton runs from May 3-7, with the main event taking place from May 4-7. It will be preceded by the annual Mitsubishi Motors Cup challenge for grassroots riders.
