Have you been watching Burghley?

Caroline Powell and Lenamore lead the field after XC.

I have and it’s been absolutely fantastic. Burghley TV allows you to watch each rider/horse individually and I really appreciate being able to follow the horse around the course rather than moving back and forth between riders. The quality of the video is very good.

After cross country, Caroline Powell from New Zealand is in the lead on Lenamore, a 17 year old gelding. Lenamore stands at a relatively small 15.3″ — Many of the horses going ’round are 16.3″ plus but he made the big jumps look easy.

In second place is last year’s winner, Oliver Townend on Carousel Quest and William Fox-Pitt is in third place with Seacookie.

Here’s a YouTube highlights video from the XC with interviews with the top 3.
