THIS year's Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials winner will receive increased prize money, it was announced today.
The winner will receive £80,000, up from £65,000 in 2013, and the increases are also reflected in the lower placings down to 20th.
The public box office for the event, which takes place from May 7-11 opens next Monday (January 13) for advanced bookings.
The event returns to its popular format of a Sunday finish in 2014, with the cross-country section taking place on the Saturday, over a course put together by new designer Giuseppe della Chiesa.
