RAU at Badminton Horse Trials 2017
This week sees the start of the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials (3-7 May 2017).
Peter Morris, lecturer in equine business at the Royal Agricultural University (RAU) attended the Press Preview Day on 12 April, which gives members of the media an opportunity to get a look at the cross country course, before the event starts and thousands of spectators descend.
Eric Winters, Course Designer, and Hugh Thomas, Event Director, gave a critical insight into this year’s event, and the theory behind the fence design. Hugh Thomas regularly visits the RAU as a guest speaker, and talks to students about the success of the Badminton Horse Trials.
Peter Morris is responsible for the media management of this world-famous equine event. He says: “Working on Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials is always great fun and always a challenge. My role is to ensure that the media get the material they want and to facilitate the press conferences each evening. It is a privilege to work with the best. I also take the opportunity to get some students to come along and help me. It is great experience for them as well.”
The RAU will be located at stand 83 near the Main Arena, so please do come along and say hello!
