The 2001 Burghley Winergy Young Event Horse series will be off and running from 20 May when the first qualifier is held at College Equestrian Centre, Beds.

The series traditionally starts in May and although three qualifiers (Chepstow Horse Trials, Rutland Agricultural Show and Bramham Horse Trials) have been cancelled due to FMD, the organisers have been able to substitute further qualifiers.

Arena UK is one of the venues that have stepped in to the breach, hosting qualifiers on 7 June and 5 July, with a further qualifier is planned for an August date.

Supported for a fifth year by Winergy, the Burghley Winergy Young Event Horse series, now in its 15th year, has become ashowcase for event horse training and breeding in this country.

Identifying the potential of many young event horses, the series provides a useful guide for breeders, owners and riders.

The final will be held on Friday, 31 August 2001 at the Burghley Pedigree Horse Trials.

The additional qualifiers are:

  • Aston le Walls Horse Trials on Thursday, 9 August

  • Brockenhurst Horse Trials on Friday, 17 August
