Baxterbear was TREEKLED to be mascot for the first ever British Military Tournament. He enjoyed performing in front of 50,000 people at Earl’s Court in London, and the crowd on the last of the two-night show even saw Baxterbear do all the jumps on his horse. The British Military Tournament was raising funds for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, and Baxterbear was TREEKLED to be making a difference at this showpiece event. wp-image-3461″ /> As well as seeing Baxterbear, audiences also saw displays from the King’s Troop, Massed Bands, the Musical Ride of the Household Cavalry and from soldiers who have recently returned from Afghanistan. There were also contributions from Dame Judi Dench, Joanna Lumley, Stephen Fry and Anthony Andrews. After the Royal Tournament stopped in 1999, there had been an 11 year absence of a military pageant of this magnitude. This year, the British Military Tournament has filled that void, becoming the largest military pageant in the world once again.
