The Badminton Horse Trials of 2006 had 63 riders representing 12 countries, with 10 riders running 2 horses.

Leader after day one of the dressage was Ingrid Klimke (GER) riding Sleep Late, but on the Friday, Andrew Hoy took the lead on his second ride, the 15 year old Moonfleet, owned by Sue Magnier.

The cross country course was deemed well up to 4 star standard but 19 went round inside the time including Moonfleet and another 46 went clear with time penalties.

"I think all the riders, owners and trainers thought it was a serious test. Conditions were perfect, the ground was perfect and the weather ideal" said Event Director and Course Designer Hugh Thomas.

A dramatic show jumping finale saw the evergreen 18 year old Over To You move up 7 places to 4th with one of o only 5 show jumping clears on the Sunday, to finish on his dressage score, a feat only matched by the winner Andrew Hoy and Moonfleet, and Andrew thus becoming the oldest winner of the most coveted trophy in eventing.

The best of the dressage and show jumping finale sandwich extensive cross country highlights.

Expert commentary by Mike Tucker, and narrated by Jamie Hawksfield.
