The text under the video asks, “Are you brave enough?” Not me! This looks like a wickedly difficult course. The video above shows the “fast” route through.
The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials started. All horses/pairs were accepted during the first presentation. Some of those horses are very fit and frisky.
During the first day of dressage Michael Jung and FischerRocana FST took a clear lead a 32.4.
Cross country starts on Saturday. You can watch the action on http://www.Burghleytv.com (although every time I’ve tried to log in so far it says the server is over capacity).
In addition to the flyover view, the Burghley website has also posted a walk through with Captain Mark Phillips.
