Some of the smallest competitors who will make an appearance at the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials in about two weeks time got to enjoy a very special sneak peak at the track! If you’re headed to Burghley, which takes place September 5-8, you’ll want to make sure you get there bright and early on Saturday to catch the ever-popular Shetland Pony Grand National at 9:30 A.M. local time before cross country starts.
They didn’t tackle any fences, of course, but some of the pony competitors got to gallop along Captain Mark Phillip’s track and through some of the iconic water complexes for this fun promo video. Want a closer glimpse of the course ahead of the big weekend? Don’t miss our course preview.
