Paget Fulfills His Promise At Burghley

With one rail down, Jock Paget and Clifton Promise won the Land Rover Burghley CCI**** (England) on Sept. 8. Not since 1989, when Ginny Leng and Master Craftsman triumphed at both Land Rover Burghley and the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials, has a combination claimed both titles in the same calendar year. This extraordinary feat also sets Paget up for a crack at the Rolex Grand Slam if he can win Rolex Kentucky next spring.

Paget Leads The Pack At Burghley

Last May all eyes were on Great Britain’s William Fox-Pitt and New Zealand’s Andrew Nicholson as they battled for the Rolex Eventing Grand Slam at the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton CCI**** (England).

But it was Kiwi rider Jock Paget who took the top placing, and no one will underestimate him this time, as he leads the dressage at the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials (England) on Sept. 6 aboard his Badminton winner Clifton Promise.

Lenamore Retires

Could a horse win the Land Rover Burghley CCI**** (England) at 17? How about compete in the Olympic Games for New Zealand and capture team bronze at 19? The answer is yes, and after a long and storied career, rider Caroline Powell and owner Lexi Jackson have decided to retire event horse Lenamore at the age of 20.

The charismatic 15.3-hand Irish Sport Horse gelding (Sea Crest—Karinella, Valiyar) began eventing in 1999 as a 6-year-old and was produced through the advanced level by owner Jackson, who gave the ride to Powell in 2004.

A Burghley Moment In Time

I walked around the cross-country warm-up trying to stay calm and focused. I felt at home on the familiar four legs that were carrying me, but there was a smell of nerves and of the unknown so thick you could almost see it sifting in and around the red and white flags.

It's Big. It's Burghley.

It’s Big. It’s Burghley.

That was the predominant phrase I heard while at the famed three-day event this past week. Every rider, when they were asked about the massive Mark Phillips designed course, had the same thing to say: It’s good! It’s big. It’s Burghley.

It was definitely big. I always say, with no disrespect at all intended, that the Land Rover Burghley CCI**** makes Rolex Kentucky look like Fisher Price My First Four Star.

Halpin Rides Into The Lead At Land Rover Burghley CCI****

August 31—Stamford, England

Being the first reserve for the Olympic team might have wreaked havoc on some riders’ psyche, but at the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials, Sinead Halpin proved she’d lost no confidence in herself and Manoir de Carneville. She put those extra weeks of preparatory time to good use and rode the test of a lifetime to win the dressage.
