    How to get there

    20 miles north east of King’s Lynn and 10 miles north-west of Fakenham.

    The event is signposted from the B1153 Docking to Brancaster road.

    What the organisers say

    The dressage has ample warm-up space adjacent to the arenas, the purpose-built showjumping arena is on flat land and the cross-country is an all-grass course on well-drained and undulating farmland.

    Course-designer Alec Lochore creates flowing courses that are designed to offer a confident run prior to the final autumn CCIs and give confidence at lower levels.

    With the possibility of using a sand arena for the showjumping and the exceptional, free-draining, sandy soil, Burnham Market is almost always guaranteed to run in all weather conditions.

    Care and attention is paid to the ground, to ensure that the going is as good as possible, including the use of an agri-vator whenever necessary. Extensive ground preparation has taken place over the winter months, prior to the 2015 events.
