Have you ever wondered whether it will rain before 3pm on cross-country day or how the top riders really feel about their dressage tests? In 2011, all this information - and more -can be at your fingertips thanks to Burghley’s new iPhone app, designed to provide up-to-the-minute coverage as the event unfolds.

The app will be free to download prior to the event and will include regular news bulletins, a live scoreboard and podcasts. Ticket information and weather forecasts will also be available, plus daily information on what’s-on-where around the showground. A cross-country course option will provide a unique accompaniment for anyone walking the course. So whether you’re sitting in the grandstands, loading up the shopping bags in the Trade Stand avenues or following our latest news from abroad, the app will provide Land Rover Burghley enthusiasts with a convenient way to keep abreast of all the latest action at the Event (1 – 4 September 2011).

Elizabeth Inman, Event Director, said: “The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials is the first four-star event to have an iPhone app and it’s a great development for us. We are always looking at different ways to communicate the unique buzz and excitement that Burghley has to offer and this app will be sure to help.”

Further information about the app will be posted on and on our Facebook page in the spring.
