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.
Visitors enjoyed three cracking days of first-class Eventing at the Belton International Horse Trials. The venue also hosted a variety of other activities including Dog Agility, an Inter-Hunt Relay, Horseball, Pony Club Mounted Games, a Classic Car Show and even the 10k Trail Run up to the Bellmount Tower.
In the tough, challenging sport that is three-day eventing, the welfare of the sport’s stars – its horses – is paramount. Overall responsibility for equine welfare at the annual Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials falls to Veterinary Services Manager Michael Gibson BVMS MRCVS.
