The event took place from Thursday 4th to Monday 8th May and attracted top eventers from all over the world, along with tens of thousands of visitors. It was highly rewarding to be able to share our knowledge about the lifesaving work that is undertaken daily across the air ambulance community in the UK.

Simmy Akhtar, Air Ambulances UK CEO, said: “We are extremely proud to have attended Badminton Horse Trials 2023, presented by Mars Equestrian and honoured to have been selected as the chosen charity. It was a privilege to have the opportunity to showcase the lifesaving work of the UK air ambulance charities who work tirelessly to bring the Emergency Department to the patient, no matter where they are – often including unfortunate riding incidents. It was wonderful to welcome and engage with so many visitors, participants, supporters, and suppliers at our stand during the event.”
