It is with great disappointment and sadness that we announce the cancellation of the 2020 Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials due to the coronavirus outbreak.

It is the first time since the event’s inception in 1961 that we have had to cancel. We must however act responsibly, and our absolute priority is the health and safety of our community, including everyone directly involved with the event; our visitors, sponsors, competitors, owners, helpers, trade exhibitors, and contractors. Particular thanks are due to our insurance brokers and underwriters who have guided us through this period.

Sir Richard Jewson, Chairman of the Burghley Horse Trials Committee, commented: “One of the joys of being involved with Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials is to be continually reminded how much this iconic event is loved by the many who create, take part, and attend. We are so appreciative of the support and co-operation that we have received at this difficult time; not least from our title sponsor Land Rover. We wish everyone well in these uncertain times. We must now focus our efforts on planning the 2021 event and which all of us are sure will be a special celebration.”

All enquiries should be forwarded to [email protected] ; the 2021 event will take place from Wednesday, September 1 to Sunday, September 5.

The Event at Rebecca Farm Will Have a New Feel This Year

This has been a difficult decision, but with the current pandemic situation at hand, we feel that this is the correct and ‘common sense’ direction to take. We are developing a plan to host a shorter, smaller, and more focused competition. We will be using state and local protocols to help guide us through this. Safety is paramount at Rebecca Farm, for both equine and human participants.
