In recent years the SEIB Burghley Sponsored Ride has enabled riders to have the unique opportunity of riding along the famous Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials Cross Country Course on the final day of Land Rover Burghley.
Riders have enjoyed a 12km leisure ride alongside the huge fences and explored the tracks and pathways of Burghley Park while raising money for charity; thanks to the support of Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials, Burghley Park, Stamford XT and the sponsorship of SEIB Insurance Brokers, 100% of the money raised goes to charity.
The day has also included completion rosettes, a photographer and special Burghley prizes for the most money raised. A great ride to do with friends, as a yard or club, it is open to riders of 5 years and upwards so that families can enjoy this fabulous experience together.
Seventeen rides have now been held and cumulative proceeds for charities is over £250,000. Numbers taking part have varied from 300 – 500 each year; the ride is suitable for horses of all ages, sizes and abilities provided they are fit and well. The ride allows walking, trotting and some designated cantering areas. There is no jumping.
