2015 Cotswold Life trophy winner Charlotte Agnew chats to Debbie Graham at the post-Badminton party

Cirencester-based eventer Charlette Agnew was the eventual winner of the Cotswold Life trophy at Badminton Horse Trials, riding her home-bred gelding Out of Africa Too after coming 26th overall. This was 27 year-old Charlotte’s third Badminton and despite one mistake in the dressage phase, she had a great ride, going clear cross country (she incurred a few time faults) and just one jump down in the show jumping.

We caught up with a very chuffed Charlotte at the post-event party with a glass of champagne in her hand.

Chippenham-based Georgie Spence, riding Wii Limbo, came 36th after unfortunately incurring 23.2 faults on the cross country.

Louisa Lockwood from Devizes in Wiltshire, riding Ballyfarris Flight came 41st after scoring 80 penalties overall.

Meanwhile Julie Tew and Beanie Sturgis were both sadly eliminated after falling at the lake.

The leader of the Cotswold pack after the dressage phase Flora Harris sadly had to withdraw after the cross country phase.
