Burghley ’19: First Vet Inspection

The wait is over for the mother of all long weekends, the pinnacle of our sport and as described by Oliver Townend, the toughest event to win…that’s right, it’s Burghley time!

Many of our favourite combinations are returning to the iconic Lincolnshire 5* event with many new additions to the entry list. Before the action starts in the Main Arena on Thursday, combinations need to be accepted at the all-important first vet inspection, which gives us the incredible opportunity to marvel at the beauty of the equine athletes and the dedication of the talented super grooms.


Listen to what Oliver Townend, Piggy French and Pippa Funnell, fresh from their silver medal winning performances at the Longines FEI European Championships had to say about their preparations, expectations and what Burghley means to them.
