Taking place today, tomorrow and Sunday, the premier equestrian and social event in the international sporting calendar will feature some of the best horses and riders in the world.

The Burghley parkland will provide the perfect setting for the four-day event (which started yesterday) and a stunning location for the popular shopping village 
of more than 600 exhibitors - tempting all ages and tastes.

There is also an excellent selection of bar and catering facilities to suit all, from a more formal luncheon in the Members’ Enclosure to worldly delicacies in the food walk and catering stalls on the showground and cross country course.
