Us too, Madeleine, us too. In fact, we’re crying more than a little and we maybe haven’t stopped crying over here at EN headquarters — we just have all the feels over this epic Burghley weekend and especially for our winner, the complete legend that is Pippa Funnell.
The competition may have come to a close, but you can keep reliving that winning feeling with this jam-packed social media round up. Just keep playing those victory gallop clips on loop while you sob into a glass of wine that another Burghley weekend has come and gone — we won’t judge!
