In 2022 the event will return on Friday 19 May 2023
The Burghley Young Event Horse series has been a popular feature of Burghley Horse Trials for over 25 years and is acknowledged as the shop window to view potential ‘four-star’ horses at an early stage. Open to four and five year olds, the aim of the Series is to encourage breeders and trainers to produce and present the next type of young event horse to be considered the best material to make a world-class Three Day Eventer.
The judges look for an athletic, loose moving horse with a promising jumping technique and attitude, which with correct training and production, will develop physically and mentally into a strong Three Day Eventer.
The top ten highest scoring horses from the first three sections are invited to come into the ring to be assessed on presence and ‘star-quality’. The horses are ordered into a line according to the Judge’s opinion of their potential.
The schedule will be available to be downloaded here shortly.
Entries open: Monday 10 April 2023. Entries taken via Horse Events.
