Take A Tour Of The Badminton Shopping Village

May 5, 2018 - 4:49 AM

With more than 500 vendors, the Shopping Village at the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials is a bit overwhelming! It’s Saturday, and honestly I’ve only hit about half of it and already blown through my budget.

Whether you’re looking for a stylish tweed and pair of mud boots, or you’re on the hunt for fancy tack for your horse, it’s all here, times 100.

I found myself loving a lot of the clothing vendors but had to ask myself, “Do I really need another rain coat?” and, “Would I wear this anywhere other than a British horse trial?”

I spent way too much money on an official Badminton jacket from Joules, but I justified that by finding a cute wax-coated jacket, which I don’t have, for 35 pounds. That makes sense, right?

Scroll down to see some amazing finds from the Shopping Village.
