Burgham Box Office 2020 Now Open

Tickets are now on sale for Burgham International Horse Trials (23-26 July).

Early bird offers on tickets are now available for tickets to the 2020 event, which is set to get spectators in the Olympic-spirit as eventing at Tokyo 2020 gets underway the following weekend!

Burgham is one of the most popular major British Eventing horse trials and draws some of the top riders and horses - and no doubt some of Tokyo 2020’s medal hopefuls will have competed at the Northumberland event during their career. The weekend will see international classes at CCI4*-S, CCI3*-S and CCI2*-S level, and a full range of national classes from Open Intermediate to BE90, offering fantastic opportunities for amateur riders to compete alongside their sporting heroes.

Event Director Martyn Johnson said: “There will be a real Olympic theme to Burgham this year. Burgham’s cross-country courses are celebrated for their exciting and challenging nature, and David Evans, designer of the CCI4*-S and CCI3*-S tracks is responsible for building the cross-country course at Tokyo 2020, so will be flying to Tokyo directly from Burgham. And Blyth Tait, designer of our CCI2*-S and national tracks, is an individual Olympic gold medallist himself, so Burgham 2020 will be where the Olympic party starts.”

This year the jumping phases of the international classes will take place on Saturday, 25 July, while Sunday is reserved for national competitions.

Burgham will also hold Dubarry Burghley Young Event Horse classes alongside other attractions, children’s entertainment, a wide variety of carefully selected locally produced food options, licenced bars and great shopping.
