The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials

Thursday 1st to Sunday 4th September 2011

Situated in the stunning parkland surrounding Burghley House, this hugely popular equestrian and social event draws visitors from all around the world.

With Dressage on Thursday and Friday, Cross Country on Saturday and Show Jumping on Sunday, it is a comprehensive test of horsemanship, and involves almost every activity of which the horse is capable.
There are also many avenues of stands offering country clothing, crafts and food, plus much more and the event is well worth a visit, whether you enjoy horses or not! Be aware: the Saturday traffic can be horrendous – get in early or wait until lunchtime! And don’t be in a rush to exit…
