Burghley Horse Trials 2016

Land Rover Burghley Horse TrialsThe 2016 Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials (1-4 September) saw Australia’s Christopher Burton achieve his first four-star win in Britain riding Nobilis 18. Chris had led in all three phases and had four fences in hand when he came into the arena to showjump on the final day. He needed them all to take the title.

New Zealand’s Andrew Nicholson and Nereo finished second at the event for the third time, while third place went to fellow Kiwi Jonelle Price riding Classic Moet. They had been the fastest pair around the cross-country on Saturday, but no-one got inside the time.

Our Burghley 2016 blogger was four-star amateur rider Ben Way, who manages to combine eventing at the highest level with a full-time job as a chartered surveyor. He was riding former racehorse Galley Light and they finished in 35th place. Read all Ben’s blogs and watch his video updates.
