The Badminton Grassroots Championship takes place just before the 5-star event with competitions for BE90 and BE100 levels.
The dressage and showjumping phases take place over the road from the Central car Park, next to the airfield, where temporary stables are available for the duration of the event. The cross country phase takes place on a course which runs next to the 5-star course and includes many fences which mimic the top level ones.
Tickets are not required for the Grassroots competition which finishes just before the first vets inspection.
Badminton, which is a 5-star international event (the highest level, CCI5*), was founded in 1949 and takes place on The Duke of Beaufort’s estate in the village of Little Badminton, Gloucestershire. It celebrates it3s 75th anniversary in 2024.
