To share important British Eventing safety developments with the wider world, the pendulum and test rig used for the FEI testing of the BE pins for frangible and deformable fences will be on display throughout the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials (Gloucestershire, 2nd – 6th May 2013).
On Friday 3rd May, both the public and members of the press attending Badminton are invited to view a live test demonstration of the pendulum in action testing the pins on a cross country fence.
The live displays will take place in the morning, lunch and afternoon dressage breaks at Stand number 97. Each session will also include a live Q&A session with Martin Herbert from ADHQ, BE’s official testing engineers with BE’s National Safety Officer Jonathan Clissold also in attendance.
For those who cannot attend Friday’s live demonstrations, the pendulum will be fixed throughout the event alongside information boards at the stand.
