The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials take place from 1–4 September in the magnificent Park of the Burghley Estate in Lincolnshire. There will be significant savings for those wishing to purchase tickets in advance of this famous sporting and social occasion.
The Box Office opens on 3rd May and is braced to deal with a flood of requests, particularly for grandstand tickets, which always sell quickly. Set for a landmark 50th anniversary; to celebrate such a special milestone; the price for membership has been held and concessions have been applied to a range of other tickets purchased in advance.
The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials is the pinnacle of the autumn Eventing calendar and is the world’s longest continuous-running international horse trial also having hosted a record 10 championship events, including the first ever World Championship in 1966.
This year’s winner will secure £50,000 and earn their rightful place in the event’s history books alongside true greats of the sport. It is expected many of the top international names will be competing, with much at stake as Burghley is an Olympic qualifier.
Burghley, also renowned for its ‘retail experience’ will not disappoint – its outside shopping mall is the envy of many. With 50th Anniversary celebrations, 400 plus exhibitors and a top class equestrian competition - it is sure to be another exciting Event.
