“The world’s greatest 5-star equestrian event” – that’s the claim on Burghley Horse Trials’ website, and we couldn’t agree more. Burghley has long been the pinnacle of equestrian eventing, and the perfect way to round off a fantastic summer of sport.
For the riders, the visitors and the exhibitors, this 4-day event is always a wild ride, literally. It’s action-packed, entertaining, and full of atmosphere.
We cannot wait to be a part of this year's event where we will be showcasing our range of equestrian and boutique fashions, including our signature mix-fringe coats, knee-length riding-style boots and the new collection of Chinese brocade jackets.
Although we expect to be busy much of the time, we will certainly take a step back and enjoy everything Burghley has to offer.
Once the gates open, we know the buzz of excitement will be electrifying. How could it be any different, set as it is in the beautiful surroundings of Burghley House, Lincolnshire? Dating back to the first Elizabethan age, Burghley House is an exquisite example of England's greatest country estates. With its lush green surroundings, it epitomises the countryside for which Britain is known.
With more than 160,000 visitors, people come from all over the world to enjoy the gems that Burghley Horse Trials has to offer, and this year's event is as spectacular as ever.
The highlight of the show is the Three Day Eventing. Comprising a series of tests that will put riders through their paces, you’ll get to watch as they show their flair in the Dressage competition, their stamina in the Cross Country race, and their mastery of Show Jumping. Witness incredible feats of courage that will have you tensing muscles you never knew existed.
With your adrenaline pumping, you might want to stop watching from the sidelines and join in. The Musto Stimulator gives you a chance to commit your own feats of courage – in relative safety, of course. A beastly and wild robotic horse, you can test your riding skills as you power your way over virtual fences.
The Land Rover Experience takes your enjoyment to the next level. You’ll experience incredible horsepower as your driver powers you over the dynamic course. When it's time to calm the adrenaline a little, head to the Shetland Pony Grand National, the Field Gun Dog Trials, and the Autarky Have A Go Dog Agility, all family favourites.
Food, Live Q&A and Famous Faces
As you're walking around, expect to spot some famous faces from the world of sport - perhaps including royalty. Indeed, The Queen's eldest granddaughter, Zara Tindall, is a frequent competitor. Other famous names to look out for include Sir AP McCoy and Oliver Townsend.
And, if you're familiar with the event, you'll know that the Celebrity Talk Area is fast becoming an institution. Here, you'll have the opportunity to get up close and personal with your favourite riders and equestrian personalities as they answer questions in front of a live audience.
But the fun doesn't stop there. With more than 600 exhibitors, a tour of the various stalls, food, and world-renowned shopping avenues is well worth it.
Don’t forget to come along and visit our stall. We've worked hard on this year's collection to create a fashion line that stands out for all the right reasons, helping you build the perfect wardrobe for such a prestigious event as Burghley Horse Trials 2019.
Amongst our most popular pieces, you’ll discover our mix-fringe coat in black and our velvet riding-style boots in grey, both firm favourites with our customers. We’ll also be revealing the newest additions to our collection: two new jackets in Chinese brocade. If you like your wardrobe to make a statement, you’ll love these colourful pieces.
To find us, take a wander down Avenue C, next to the main arena.
We're sure you'll agree, with so much to see and do at Burghley Horse Trials, it's no wonder the event grows ever larger and people return year-after-year.
