2 for Todd - A Profile of Mark Todd

Television (Full Length) – 1989

In this documentary from 1991, two-time Olympic gold medalist Mark Todd searches for his second win at the 1989 Badminton Horse Trials. Adding to the challenge, he's riding a horse — The Irishman — that he's only just met. Elsewhere in Chris Wright's documentary Todd rides horses on his grandfather’s Cambridge farm, and has early unlikely success at Badminton riding Southern Comfort and legendary horse Charisma. Todd would go on to win several Olympic medals, before triumphing at Badminton for the fourth time in 2011 — nearly 30 years after his first success.

When I first started eventing, the dressage was basically a necessary evil of the whole thing, but as I've got more into it the dressage is an integral part of it all and also very very important — because nowadays unless you're in the top few after the dressage you don't really have a chance of winning the whole competition.
