It’s it funny how much of time the most talked about fences on a course end up being the most benign. Those rider-frightener fences sure do make for some amazing photos, though!

It was a crazy influential day of cross country yesterday at Badminton, so make sure you catch up on Tilly’s fantastically detailed report here. Tomorrow’s jog takes place bright and early at 8:30 AM local/3:30 AM Eastern (or you know, just catch our jog report!) and then showjumping begins at 11:30 AM local/ 6:30 AM Eastern for the first batch of competitors, followed by the top twenty starting at 3:30 PM local, 10:30 AM Eastern.
