In a change of tradition, the Dubarry Burghley Young Event Horse Final has been moved and will help to get the 2020 Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials underway.
Integral to Land Rover Burghley and the start of many horses’ five star careers, the competition has historically been run on the Friday. But this year it will take place on Wednesday. The opening day of the event will also see the culmination of the BE80(T) Championship as well as the first glimpse of the five-star combinations vying for the 2020 trophy. The shoping village will also be open to members of the public from Wednesday.
Of the move, Event Director Elizabeth Inman commented; “We are delighted to be showcasing the Young Event Horse Final on the Wednesday and are sure that our visitors will enjoy this new start to a fabulous five days of sport.”
Dubarry’s Marketing Director Michael Walsh added: “We are thrilled to be headlining Burghley’s inaugural Wednesday as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of having the iconic Dubarry stand at this prestigious event.”
