Thinking of visiting the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials this year? The box office for the three-day event in Lincolnshire, held this year from 30 August to 2 September, has just opened.

Having successfully moved the start and finish box last year, H&H columnist and Burghley course designer Captain Mark Phillips will this year run the cross-country course in an anti-clockwise direction.

Visitors are to get an even better view of arena action this year, following a review of the grandstand seating. The east grandstand has been raised and the south stand extended, and there will be commentary headsets available. Visitors can also book parking in advance.
