Women in Racing (WiR), the network that supports women involved with horseracing, will for the first time be stepping into the sport of eventing and , in partnership with the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials and Champagne House Pol Roger, is offering members and guests the opportunity to enjoy a truly exclusive day!
The Pol Roger Experience at the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials will be hosted on Friday 1 September, the second day of the dressage phase of the world renowned three day event.
Guests will be welcomed to the Pol Roger Lodge for a talk about the champagne, followed by a unique walk of the cross-country course with insights from event rider Julia Dungworth before returning to the Pol Roger Lodge and can enjoy the champagne.
Guests will then be free to enjoy the rest of the day, taking in the latter half of the dressage phase of the competition or enjoying some of the hundreds of special shops and trade stands on site.
