Badminton Horse Trials 2023: The Sloaney’s Badminton Shopping Guide
Badminton Horse Trials, presented by Mars Equestrian, has retuned for another bumper year. The world’s best horses and riders in the sport of Eventing have descended upon the Duke of Beaufort’s estate in Gloucestershire for some thrilling sporting action over this Coronation Bank Holiday weekend.
While the competitors are the main attraction, the Badminton shopping village always draws thousands of visitors for the duration of the event. Today, we enjoyed a preview of some of the fabulous boutiques and here is The Sloaney’s Guide to Shopping at Badminton Horse Trials 2023, which features our top 5 stores to visit…
If you are a keen rider and in search of equestrian products, there are countless shops that offer the very best equipment for you and your horse. The Le Mieux stand is located near to the main arena and it is stocked with the brand’s very best products.
Meanwhile, if you are looking for a chic tailored coat or some stylish accessories during your Badminton shopping trip, we absolutely love Latham & Taylor. They boast beautifully cut jackets, fur trim gilets, elegant hats and country-chic accessories. Many items from the collection are ideal for smart rural occasions, but they would also be perfect for a lunch date in Chelsea.
During our visit to the Dubarry store, shoppers were sipping on champagne as they admired the vast array of boots that are on show. A top choice of footwear among stylish attendees of Badminton Horse Trials, the Dubarry collection is also very versatile and suitable for other key events that form part of the British Social Season.
The Kate Negus stand is also a firm favourite for those enjoying a Badminton shopping spree and this year is no different. Famous for quality bridlework and accessories, the brand also has a popular Handbag range. Bags are available in lots of different sizes, from wallet organisers, shoulder purses and larger totes, such as the Bramham bag.
The Moloh boutique is looking fabulously patriotic in a welcome nod to the coronation. The luxury fashion brand presents pieces that are mainly limited edition, which means that you have the benefit of wearing relatively unique items. Classic British designs are central to the brand, with jackets, shirts, blouses and dresses all on show at Badminton Horse Trials 2023.
