Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials


Dubarry Burghley Young Event Horse

This hugely popular competition, now in its third decade, is integral to Burghley Horse Trials and remains acknowledged as the shop window to view potential ‘five star’ horses at an early age.

This page is for guidance only, information for the 2021 Series will be available in due course.

Open to four and five year olds, the aim of the Series is to encourage breeders and trainers to produce and present the type of young horse which will be the best material to make a world class three-day event horse.

The judges look for an athletic, loose moving horse with a promising jumping technique and attitude which, with correct training and production, will develop physically and mentally into a strong three-day event horse.

The winner is that with the highest overall marks from four sections: Dressage, Jumping, Conformation & Quality and Suitability & Potential.

For reference only the 2020 Judges Guidelines can be found here, these guidelines may be amended prior to the 2021 Series.
