Unlocking the Burghley video vault

Burghley is 17 days away, who is counting?  Burghley.tv has posted Burghley videos from 1990 through 2010, including the full Burghley videos for free from 1990 to 2004.  You could spend the next 20 hours of your life doing nothing but watch Burghley videos, and I know Coren will.  It’s amazing to watch the changes in the sport through the years, some good, some bad.  Many thanks to EN reader TA for sending in the link.

It’s the 50th anniversary of Burghley and this year is shaping up to be one of the best competition yet.  The entry list is absolutely stacked, although many horses who will be competing at the European Games instead are cross-entered.  Enough North American names are entered to keep everyone on both sides of the pond interested.

    One down, how many more to go? Such an education to watch… I was pretty surprised at how twisty, turny the 1990 XC was and then watching riders fall and then get back on and continue a bit dazed… so many of the great riders then are still our great riders now! and really neat hearing them talk about the local gal Mary Thompson (King) in the 1990 event and Mark Todd looked the same then as he does now! And Lucinda was all pink then too… such fun – thanks EN for the links to such wonderful video footage!

    Absolutely an incredible education!!! We have come such a long way in the show jumping and boy has the xc changed!! It seems that the horses today have to be as capable in all three phases where as in 1990 it was truly the xc that could make or break you!! I can’t wait to watch all the other videos. Thx xo much EN!!!
