London 52 withdrawn from 2023 Badminton Horse Trials

London 52 withdrawn from Badminton 2023 Laura Collett Eventing

Absolutely gutted to say I’ve withdrawn London 52 from this years Badminton Horse Trials 5*. He struck himself last week and was very sore. Thankfully with some special shoes from Greig Elliott he is now sound and back in work but he has missed all his prep runs …… after many sleepless nights I’ve decided that’s it’s just not meant to be this year.

London 52 owes me absolutely nothing and I owe it to him to make the right decision and I know deep down that this is the right decision even though it’s heart breaking.  The main thing is he’s ok and we will now re route to Turniergesellschaft Luhmühlen. I am so grateful to have the memories from our Badminton last year and hopefully Dacapo can repeat what London 52 did last year.
