Burghley Estate is home to the largest horse trials course in the World and its annual event is the showpiece of the UK’s equestrian calendar. These jumps were made for jumpin’ – and even though you won’t have a horse – we thought we’d send you over them anyway. Some of the horse trials jumps are massive; some involve water and some are just plain old horse-fences. Cue much Horseplay.
