Some very interesting stuff on the Badminton website (and very well produced, I must say.)

First, for those of you with an interest in the frangible pin question, this video should be required reading:

http://www.badminton-horse.co.uk/latest_news/2010_course_preview.aspx

Here Hugh Thomas explains his thoughts behind the course and also shows the pins in place on several fences. In most cases they are positioned differently than on the Rolex Hollow fence where last weekend's falls occurred.

Then, there is also an interview with Yogi Breisner which is interesting. Though I must say the part I found fascinating is around the 10 minute mark where they show CMP riding at Badminton and making one of the more horrifying XC decisions I have seen - trying to jump a water-to-water question in the Lake from a walk and flipping. Yikes.
