Tomorrow I am heading off to Burghley horse trials in what must be 3-4 years! I did splash out on Burghley TV this week so I have been keeping up to date with all the dressage action and I really enjoyed the Cross Country Preview. It looks like an exciting course and there could be a few surprises in it.
I have read through all the entries and it doesn’t look like there are any ex racehorses taking part this year, which is always a bit of a shame. But there are plenty of other combinations I love following. My favourite couple, Tim & Jonelle Price, have 4 horses entered between them. Bango, one of my favourite horses of Tim’s is probably one of my favourites. (Just as I was publishing this, Tim went to the top of the leaderboard on his second horse Vitali.)
I also have a soft spot for Ros Canter. One of her horses, Lordships Graffalo, was bred by my University and I handled him as a yearling. So I always love to see him competing, especially after his incredible 2nd at Badminton earlier this year! Unfortunately (ish) he isn’t at Burghley this year as he is competing in the World Championships in a few weeks time. But his half sister, Pencos Crown Jewel, also ridden by Ros is competing. So I will cheer her on instead.
Keep an eye on our socials tomorrow for some photos and videos!
