Final horse inspection

Of the 40 horses who completed yesterday’s Land Rover Burghley cross country phase, 38 were presented to the Ground Jury, Sue Baxter (GBR), David Lee (IRL) and Anne-Mette Binder (DEN), this morning.

All 38 passed with flying colours, and looked in top condition after the challenges of yesterday; Denis Mesples (FRA), in particular, had his hands full with a very exuberant Oregon De La Vigne.

Neither Improvise nor Brendonhill Doublet were presented. Bill Levett (AUS) and Improvise had been lying in 9th place overnight, whilst Imogen Gloag (GBR), our youngest competitor, had been in 40th.

Various special prizes were awarded immediately after the trot up. Click here for details of the Best Dressed winners, and here for Horse Care prize and Best Shod.
