Synopses & Reviews
Burghley Horse Trials has been a perennial delight for both riders and spectators ever since the Marquess of Exeter started it in his beautiful parkland in 1961. The Little Book of Burghley charts the event's rapid elevation to the status of much-loved sporting institution through the riders, horses and officials who made their mark at Burghley. It also provides a fascinating snapshot into how the sport of eventing has modernized during 60 years of triumph and drama, and how Burghley has played an important part in that development. Above all, it shows why the Burghley Horse Trials have become the ultimate annual highlight in any sportsman's calendar.
