Burghley Horse Trials is to be supported by Land Rover until 2010. The 4×4 vehicle specialist has been associated with Burghley since the 1990s and has been title sponsor since 2005.

John Edwards, Land Rover UK managing director, said: “The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials is the pinnacle of our equestrian sponsorship portfolio. With a natural association between the Land Rover brand and equestrianism, where better to showcase this than at an event regarded as one of the best in the world.”

This year’s event takes place from 30 August to 2 September with the winner taking home £50,000 from a total prize fund of £200,000.

Elizabeth Inman, Burghley Horse Trials director, said: “I am delighted that this partnership has now been further reinforced by Land Rover’s commitment as title sponsor until 2010. Its investment is hugely beneficial.”
