WIN! Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials tickets
We’re giving away two season tickets and a car pass to the 2022 Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials, along with catering vouchers worth £50 courtesy of Freemans Event Partners.
Lincolnshire Life has teamed up with Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials to offer one lucky reader the chance to win two tickets, a car pass and catering vouchers for the event on 1st-4th September 2022.
Eventing began in the parkland surrounding Burghley House in 1961 by accident after the Marquess of Exeter, a keen equestrian, heard that the three-day event at Harewood was to be cancelled due to a suspected outbreak of foot and mouth disease. He invited the British Horse Society to transfer the event to his estate – the start of a remarkable journey.
Today, the event is one of the most popular and highly regarded within the equestrian and social calendars, and ranks within the UK’s top 10 national sporting occasions by attendance. More than 170,000 visitors are welcomed over the four days, over 600 carefully selected exhibitors attend, an average of 80 of the world’s top competitors take part and there’s a prize fund of over £300,000.
The closing date for entries is Wednesday 24th August at 12 noon – Good luck!
