Top 10 results for Suregrow riders at Burghley Horse Trials 2016
Australia's Chris Burton won his first British four-star at the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials 2016 with a nail biting finish. He entered the showjumping arena with four fences in hand, but Nobilis 18 started to drop the poles from the double at fence four and finished having used up his buffer penalties. They finished on 49.4 to claim the Burghley 2016 title, but the final showjumping phase was an influential one.
One of only two double clear rounds was produced by Oliver Townend and Samuel Thomas II resulting in seventh place and best Brit. Caroline Powell and Onwards and Upwards completed the showjumping with one pole down and one time penalty which slotted them into eighth place.
Massive congratulations to Chris Burton but also to our two sponsored riders, Oliver and Caroline, for completing with such fantastic results! Top ten results are below.
