Burghley horse trials - guilty m'lud
I'm not entirely what a horse has to do wrong to be put on trial.
That old joke aside, the Burghley horse trials take place annually in September. Thousands and thousands turn up to this three-day event. It cost nearlt 20 quid to get into the Jamboree, which is at it's largest on the Saturday when the cross-country phase of the competition takes place.
As it is one of the premier equestrian events in the year it is well nigh impossible to get a hotel room or restaurant table during that weekend.
I went a few years ago and happily spent the day watching various members of the upper classes trying to kill themselves by jumping over big logs into lakes - excellent.
I also would love to take part in the charity event that usually happens around the same time. Teams of runners tackle the cross-country course (about 5 miles) and scale the 30 plus fences. freiends of mine have done it, and it sounds a great laugh.
