The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials
Situated within the magnificent parkland of Burghley House, Stamford, The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials (3–6 September 2015) is renowned not only as a major international sporting event, but also the premier occasion in the autumn social calendar.
The 2015 Event will see the top horse and rider combinations drawn from across the globe to take part in what is recognised as one of eventing’s toughest challenges.
Land Rover Burghley starts with two days of dressage in the main arena (Thursday and Friday). Saturday is cross country day, when competitors test their nerve around Burghley’s famously demanding course, designed by Captain Mark Phillips. The competition then comes to a climax with showjumping on Sunday to determine who will carry home the Land Rover Perpetual Challenge Trophy and the substantial first prize.
The expansive, much-loved retail village is currently being planned, with a number of exciting new developments in the pipeline. Each year more than 600 trade exhibitors offer everything from artisan cheeses and local produce to luxury goods such as jewellery, fashion and accessories. For the serious equestrian every possible element of horse-related paraphernalia is on sale, ranging from stabling, feed and tack to riding boots, hats and clothing.
