Nicholson wins Badminton

May 9, 2017

New Zealand equestrian rider Andrew Nicholson has won the 2017 Badminton Horse Trials.

The veteran was competing in the event for the 36th time and his win capped off a great day for New Zealand.

Also on the podium with him today were kiwis Tim Price in third with 49.2 penalty points, Sir Mark Todd in fourth on 50.4.

Nicholson, with his mount Nereo, was over the moon with the result, which is the highest goal in the sport outside of the Olympic Games.

He was a record-holder at Badminton as the rider with the most completions having never been the victor, that was until today in his 37th completion.

It is a remarkable comeback, after Nicholson suffered what could have been a career-ending neck injury in 2015.

The three day event includes the dressage, the cross country and the show jumping disciplines.
