Monday Video: Kitty King Walks Key Combinations of the Burghley Course

Welcome to another five-star week and the first of the fall season! Just two more sleeps until the Defender Burghley Horse Trials kicks things off with the first horse inspection on Wednesday, so naturally we’re obsessed with getting every possible little peak at this year’s Derek di Grazia course ahead of Saturday’s always-exciting cross country action.

Tilly already brought us the inside scoop on Derek’s use of the famed Burghley terrain, courtesy of a drive around the course in an actual Land Rover Defender, and now, courtesy of Horse & Hound, we’re getting a rider’s assessment of some of the key combinations on course. Fresh off collecting individual silver and team gold at the 2023 European Eventing Championships with Vendredi Biats, Kitty King walks the lines and shows us what those tackling the course this weekend will need to keep in mind.

Keep your eye on Horse & Hound‘s YouTube channel as they may be posting more sneak peaks early this week and if you’re able to pick up a copy of the August 24th issue of Horse & Hound magazine you can read Kitty’s thoughts on every fence. And of course, stick with us here on EN for much more to come from England’s big fall five-star!
