Burghley Horse Trials - Coming Soon...

There are many crossovers within the Equestrian sporting world and at Racing Break, we want to bring you up to speed with two of Britain’s biggest events; Badminton and Burghley Horse Trials. Both of these are top class internationally renowned events that take place once a year attracting crowds from all over the country.

Burghley Horse Trials was due to take place in early September this year but unfortunately had to be cancelled like so many other events due to the ongoing pandemic. With all being well, next year Burghley will take place from Wednesday 1st - Sunday 5th September.  This is an annual ‘Three-day event’ which is now spread over five days; originally known as a three day event in eventing terms due to the three disciplines in which horse and rider are tested. The Burghley Horse Trials is classified by the FEI as one of the six leading three-day events in the world and is ranked at CCI*****(five star) level which is the top level. The prize for first place is £95,000 and prize money is handed down to 20th place. The backdrop of Burghley House is stunning and offers a fantastic day out for people of all ages. There is so much on offer to entertain you throughout the week or if you are just visiting for the day, then ensure you wear comfortable footwear as
