Burghley Horse Trials

2nd September - 6th September

Burghley Horse Trials is a four star event held every September where experienced international horses and riders compete in dressage, cross-country and showjumping phases in the beautiful parkland that surrounds Burghley House.

The house is widely acknowledged to be the finest Elizabethan stately home in the country and provides a spectacular backdrop for the horse trials.

The event is a comprehensive test of all-round horsemanship, and involves almost every activity of which the horse is capable. Competitors must complete each section and their overall score provides the final placing.

No other international horse trials site has staged as many Championships, a record ten in all including the first World Championship in 1966.

PONY Magazine sponsors World of the Horse pavilion at at Burghley Horse Trials. Make sure you stop by for a visit!
