Land Rover Burghley Horse TrialsThe 2018 Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials will give eventing fans a chance to see top riders in action from 30 August to 2 September prior to the World Equestrian Games in Tryon, North Carolina later in the month.

Held as usual in the grounds of Burghley House at Stamford in Lincolnshire, last year’s event saw Britain’s Oliver Townend rode his exciting 10-year-old Ballaghmor Class into top spot, but it was a close run thing after he collected five penalties in the final phase. Hot on his heels were fellow Brits Piggy French (Vanir Kamira), Gemma Tattersall (Arctic Soul) and Tom McEwen (Toledo De Kerser). The top five were completed by Tim Price (Ringwood Sky Boy). Britain finished with six riders in the top 10.
