In his latest exclusive H&H column, top British event rider William Fox-Pitt praises the Burnham Market team for their successful hosting of Britain’s only CCI4*-L class this season, while advising caution...
COMPETITORS felt fortunate to have a four-star long at Burnham Market, the only one in the UK this year. Running it was a serious undertaking by Alec Lochore and his wife Emily and their team at Musketeer, as well as a financial risk, so hats off to them.

Now, it feels like our younger horses have made progress rather than just treading water in 2020. We can move forward to 2021, with everything crossed for our big events.
