The ever popular Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials will kick off on Thursday next week, with huge crowds expected to fill the grounds of Burghley for this fantastic event.

Taking place from Thursday, next week until Sunday, the equestrian event will feature some of the world’s best riders who will battle it out in dressage, cross county and showjumping.

But it’s not all about the horses. Alongside the action packed line-up, will be a huge shopping area, with scores of food and drink outlets, activities for all ages and the chance to see part of the beautiful Burghley Park which is usually off limits.
