I’m sure like us many of you are missing your usual trip to the iconic Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials this weekend.

We may not be able to sit on the bank overlooking Discovery valley watching the action unfold this year, or sample the tasty delights available in the Food Walk – but you can still get your annual Burghley fix thanks to the team who run the event who have put together a special online Burghley weekend, Friday 4th – Sunday 6th September. 

You can still treat yourself to a spot of retail therapy at some of your favourite stands that you would normally visit -many are offering discounts too.

Also, you can re-live some amazing cross-country rounds over the years from tops riders including Mary King, Andrew Nicholson, William Fox-Pitt and Caroline Powell from the Burghley archives.

On Sunday Claire Balding hosts a celebration programme from 3pm, highlights will include;

  • Strictly Dressage with Carl Hester MBE and International dressage & eventing judge Nick Burton

  • 2019 Champion Pippa Funnell from The Billy Stud
