About the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials

With over 160,000 visitors, 600+ trade stands, 80 top international competitors and a prize fund of £225,000 (2015) Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials will be a far cry from the inaugural event, which took place within the magnificent parkland of Burghley House in 1961, more than 50yrs ago.

Today the televised, multi-award winning Event has become one of the most popular and highly regarded within the equestrian calendar and is one of just six CCI 4* events in the World (the toughest level of equestrian competition) with Burghley considered as the most challenging.

Who goes?

Burghley attracts a wide range of visitors.  Horse lovers from across the globe travel to Stamford to watch the very best in equestrian sport. However, Burghley is also a much loved social event.  Many visitors know little or nothing about horses, but enjoy the opportunity to socialise with friends and explore the extensive shopping village.

Aside from the main competition there are a host of other activities including retrained racehorse classes, various displays, the Land Rover Experience area + many more; don’t miss the final of the Dubarry Burghley Young Event Horse Class on the Friday and on Thursday, the Pony Club Team Jumping  - both in Ring 2.
