What to wear to Badminton Horse Trials

Since 1949 Badminton Horse Trials have been one of the highlights of the eventing season, and as part of the Rolex Grand Slam of Eventing, is certainly the place to be seen. From gaggles of horsey teenagers, to seasoned experts in eccentric hats and moth-nibbled tweed, there is no in, or out crowd here, just a perfect demonstration of the countryside community in unison.

If you’re heading to the trials, whether it’s for just a day, or for the entire three-day event, early May weather can be unpredictable – in fact Badminton has been cancelled several times over the years thanks to inclement conditions. Dressing for outdoors events in spring is a key consideration, as nothing can spoil your fun like a bit of discomfort! The Zambuni team have curated a selection of this season’s best pieces for, rain or shine, to ensure that you can strut through across the Badminton arena in style and comfort. Your attention will be fully tracked on the competition and not the discomfort of your clothes.
