Oliver Townend and Armada place 2nd at Badminton Horse Trials!

Categories: None | Tags: None

Congratulations to Suregrow's Oliver Townend and Armada on placing 2nd at the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials!

Armada made it look effortless and soared 32 places after the opening dressage phase for them to finish less than 3 penalties behind Griffiths final score. Oliver was so affected by Armada's performance that it left him close to tears.

This was Oliver's best four-star result since his win in 2009.

Oliver took over the ride on Armada at the start of 2012 from his friend Andrew Nicholson. It was recommended by Andrew that owner Paul Ridgeon pass the four-star event horse to Oliver because he could not guarantee the horse a Badminton run.
