New Timed Section for 2018 and minor course adjustments
Following the feedback we received from our online survey after last years event, we have listened and made some important changes. The timed section has been changed to improve the rate that riders can get through this section and some of the skinny fences have been removed. Our course designer has also made some improvements to the course and has moved one troublesome fence along with some other minor changes. We hope these changes will make you enjoy your day even more.
The Burton Hunter Trial also include qualifiers for The Horseware National Hunter Trials Championships which will be held at Eland Lodge, Ashbourne, Derbyshire on October 1st. This will be the last qualifying event before the finals in October so please enter at the earliest opportunity
