Burghley Horse Trials

Land Rover Burghley Horse TrialsThe 2015 Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials is currently underway (3-6 September) and promises to be an exciting competition with a brand new look to the cross-country course, which is running in the opposite direction. Course designer Mark Phillips believes this will give riders who are familar with Burghley’s challenging terrain a very different task to master this time around. See pictures of every fence on the cross-country course.

All 73 horses passed the first horse inspection, but Olympic and European champion Michael Jung experienced an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction along the way. Watch the video and read what happened in our trot-up report.

This year’s event is taking place the week before the European Eventing Championships in Scotland, so European riders will be heading up to Blair Castle with their best horses. However, Burghley will still be an excellent and highly competitive competition, so we’re all looking forward to finding out whose name will be added to Winners’ Avenue.

The Horse & Hound team are on site running our popular H&H Live service, keeping you up to date with all the action as it happens. We are also sharing daily updates from our eventing bloggers Coral Keen and Simon Grieve, while Nana Dalton, who was our guest first-timer blogging from Badminton, is rejoining us for Burghley.
