Thursday Video: Burghley’s First Decade

I always find it fascinating to look back at eventing’s early iterations and get a sense of how much has changed — and, in many cases, how much has stayed the same. The British Pathé archives tend to be a goldmine of old news footage, and they’ve collected plenty from some of the UK’s major equestrian events over the years, too, including these action shots from Burghley back in 1967 — that’s just five years into its existence. These days, it’s the world’s biggest, beefiest five-star, and it certainly wasn’t a track for the faint-hearted back then, either!
