Friday Video: Check out Burghley’s Best-Ever Dressage Test

Just making it to Burghley as a competitor is an extraordinary accomplishment in its own right, but for those who do fulfil their entries and start their competition in a short couple of weeks, there’ll be plenty of further goals on the table: a coveted completion, of course, but also the chance to make a bit of history. One way of doing that is to set a record, which is exactly what Chris Burton did in 2016 when he and Nobilis 18 put a 30.2 (that’s a 20.1 in today’s scoring!) on the board, giving themselves such a decisive lead that even a handful of rails down on Sunday couldn’t take the win from them. Relive their performance with today’s video.
