It’s Day One of the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials and the riders have just had their first look at the imposing cross country course they’ll face on Saturday.
Before we let her go off and get beautiful for the First Horse Inspection, we caught up with Laine Ashker and her mother Val to see what they thought, and also to find out how they’re adjusting to the English Country lifestyle!
Spoiler Alert – they have plenty of respect for the course, and they’re making the most of every minute here so far.
Apologies for the slight break in the middle of the video, technical malfunction, but many thanks to Laine and Val for their patience, good humour and time. More to come from the First Horse Inspection shortly.
