It will be a first Badminton for former British Junior and Young Rider Alice Dunsdon who is based near Ewhurst in Surrey. It will however be an even bigger occasion for Alice who is bidding to make history as the first person to complete all six of the worlds four-star events on the same horse. Having completed the other five (Burghley, Lexington, Pau, Adelaide and Luhmuhlen), Badminton is the sixth and final event on the list.
Alice comes from an equestrian family; her mother was an international showjumper, her Uncle was the racehorse trainer the late Josh Gifford and her cousin is Badminton rider Tina Cook.
In 2006 Alice was a member of the British Young rider team that won gold at the European Championships in Waregem (Master Taldi). She is now the MFH of the Surrey Union.
Alice trains with Gill Watson and Corinne Bracken
