BURGHLEY INVITES EVENTING STALLIONS TO PARADE
The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials from 2-5 September 2010 and the Lead Body for British Performance Sport Horses and Ponies (PSHP) are staging a third stallion parade in Ring 2 on Friday 3 September.
Up to 20 ridden stallions, including proven event sires, all of which are graded, will parade at lunchtime in a spectacle for all visitors to the horse trials, giving breeders plenty of time to view and pick their eventing sires for next breeding season.
Says Event Director Elizabeth Inman, “the British Equestrian Federation and PSHP have been working together for several years now to improve the quality and breeding of our horses and ponies. We are pleased to be linking with PSHP once again to showcase these stallions for the future of sport horse breeding. This year, by popular demand, we will give priority to sires known for or likely to produce event horses”.
Stallion entry forms are now available at www.bef.co.uk and will be taken on a first come first served basis. A list of stallions entered will be available on these websites in August.
