British Eventing applauds Badminton performance

British Eventing has told equine insurance policyholders that the team's performance at the Badminton Horse Trials is proof that they have a real chance of taking home the gold at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Piggy French placed second at this weekend's competition, which saw veteran rider Mark Todd clinch victory 31 years after his first title at Badminton.

Commenting on the chances of the team at next year's Olympics, Yogi Breisner, British Eventing's performance manager, said: "People say we're very lucky, we've got a lot of combinations, but you're still looking for those. We need five [combinations for next year] and I'd like to think we've got five."

Which combinations between riders and horses are best placed for next year's riding season will be judged based on this year's European Championships performance, Mr Breisner added.

The European Championships take place at the Luhmuhlen Horse Trials in Germany from August 24th to 28th.
