A list of early Burghley entries has been posted and we’re glad to see that three Americans have wasted no time in signing up.

Burghley (Sept. 1-4) has been the goalpost for Libby Head and Sir Rockstar since they rock ‘n’ rolled around Badminton this spring. They pair stayed in the UK to train throughout the summer and we can’t wait to see them take a crack at Burghley’s massive four-star track — it should be right up this cross-country machine’s alley.

Liz Halliday-Sharp is based in the UK but is a Burghley rookie. She’s chosen HHS Cooley as her partner to tick this four-star box; it will be his second four-star, the first being Rolex this spring where they executed a flawless cross-country round.

Leah Lang-Gluscic and AP Prime also handily laid down a double-clear trip at Rolex this year and are now taking aim at their first competition abroad. Go big or go home! Cross country is their wheelhouse — the common denominator of these three combinations, as it should be if you’re going to tackle Burghley.
