Burghley Horse Trials

Land Rover Burghley Horse TrialsThis year’s Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials (4-7 September) comes hot on the heels of the eventing competition at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in France, but this hasn’t diminished the quality of the field.

Andrew Nicholson will be going for a hat-trick of wins on his beautiful, if at times cheeky, grey Avebury. Andrew was promoted to first place after the ride of last year’s initial winner Jock Paget, Clifton Promise, was disqualified after testing positive for a prohibited substance. Jock has since been cleared of any wrong doing.

Other notable combinations include Badminton winner Sam Griffiths will be bringing his experienced four-star ride Happy Times to try to claim the second leg of the Rolex Grand Slam of eventing. World number one William Fox-Pitt has Kentucky winner Bay My Hero and 2011 Burghley winner Parklane Hawk entered. View all the Burghley 2014 entries
