The bar was set high on the first day of dressage at the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials. Michael Jung set the standard that went unchallenged until today with his Rolex winning mare, fischerRocana FST, earning a 34.2 to set the early lead.
It’s a tightly bunched leaderboard, as we all expected, and Burghley has put together a great video highlighting the sandbox action from day one. As we know now, it’s Michael Jung and William Fox-Pitt with Fernhill Pimms sharing the lead at the moment, and our three American ladies are holding down the fort with positions in the top 35.
Samantha Clark has done a bang up job with her coverage of the event so far, and you can catch up on all of the reports here. Stay tuned for much more to come this weekend from Burghley!
