Tired and happy, that’s me! What an amazing event, amazing result and amazing weather. As Todd Gloyn tweeted to me “last year it was fantasy Badminton, this year it’s fantastic Badminton”.

I have lots of amazing photos and stories to share but unfortunately very limited Internet access. I am also travelling to Germany today so will have little opportunity to post anything.

I do, however, promise to post more as soon as I can. And no, I’m not going to visit Michael Jung unfortunately!  Which reminds me of a funny moment in the final press conference last night. Michael was asked if he now regrets having Jock over to his place last winter for show jumping lessons. His reply? “No but this winter I am coming to Jock’s place!”

Congratulations to Jock and his connections for a fabulous win. Congratulations also to Andrew Nicholson. More congratulations to the organisers of the most amazing competition in the world!
