A new event director, Martyn Johnson, and new cross country course designer, Derek di Grazia - who is responsible for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics track - are set to bring new innovations to the event.

The running order

The event will start with two days of dressage in the main arena on Thursday and Friday.

Saturday is cross country day - when competitors test their nerve around Burghley’s famously demanding course.

The competition will then come to a climax with show jumping on Sunday to determine who will carry home the Land Rover Perpetual Challenge Trophy and substantial £100,000 first prize.

What’s on?
