A very special presentation was made to Hamish and Polly Lochore in the main arena at the Land Rover Blair Castle International Horse Trials. Many unforgettable memories captured over the 45 years at Burgie were used to produce a personalised photo board for them. A huge thank you to all who submitted images to make this possible!

What a superb day of eventing the Final Burgie Horse Trials delivered. Unfortunately Polly & Hamish could not be with us but were with us in spirit (and on the end of a phone checking up on us)!

Congratulation to all our winners today, it was wonderful to see so many local riders who discovered their love of the sport at Burgie coming home victorious. Avril Johnston won the Novice section and could probably lay claim to the competitor with the most trips round Burgie during her career if we were counting. Neve Smith, a local under-18 won her 100 section, Polly has always mentored and encouraged young riders in the area and will be proud that a local lass won at the Final Event. The final rider out on the course today was another local rider, Emily Kerr who won the 80 section. We hope all competitors enjoyed their day at Burgie.

As we all know no event can run without an army of loyal volunteers, thank you to each and every one of you for your support today and over the years. Burgie Horse Trials has the most dedicated volunteers, who willingly give up their time and turn out no matter the weather to ensure we all have a good day of eventing. The volunteers are the backbone of Burgie and deserve our grateful thanks.

The Horse Trials Committee who work tirelessly in the background were shocked when we were told this would be our final event just over 3 weeks ago but we hope we have done Burgie proud today. Sadly this is the last run of the iconic Burgie Horse Trials but we can all be grateful for the many memories made at this special venue.

It really was a fantastic Final Fling - Polly and Hamish, we cannot thank you enough for 45 years of eventing at Burgie

Burgie Horse Trials

After 45 years of national and international eventing competitions it is with a heavy heart that we announce that the British Eventing Horse Trails to be held on 3rd July 2022 will be the final Horse Trials at Burgie.

From humble beginnings in 1977 through the flourishing years of the late ’90 and early 2000’s, Burgie grew to being one of the largest competitor Three Day Events in the world, with the core objectives of good fun and good sport. Many future equine champions have cut their Three-Day Event teeth on the hills at Burgie and the great and good from the eventing world have enjoyed the long daylight days and fabulous views from the top of the hill.

This has been a very difficult family decision, as all of us at Burgie are well aware of the enormous contributions that have been made over the years to make Burgie so internationally synonymous with the sport and the significant community which has embraced the venue from around Scotland. It is testament to this community that there are still key team members and volunteers from the original event in 1977 that will be active for the final running on the 3rd July 2022 and we would like to pay tribute to the hard working Horse Trials Committee and the many volunteers whom have made this event so great over so many years and who have given so much time, energy, and hard work into the running of eventing at Burgie over the past 45 years.

We are also sincerely grateful for the years of commitment made by the riders, owners, sponsors and so many more who have embraced Burgie Horse Trials and embodied all that is good about the sport of eventing.

We hope the sun will shine and everyone will have fun on Sunday 3rd July.

Best wishes

Always smiles and laughter at Burgie!

In the morning we giggled as the organisers unblocked the portaloos with an electric fence post, later the cross country must have been running to plan as the TA was seen smiling on the course and at the end of the day our dressage dream team were delighted to receive a hamper for all their hard work.

A really touching story about our programme cover star Eireann Boughey with lovely words from her family

Eireann’s eventing journey at Burgie started in 2014 as number 316 on Ellie de Livius. After numerous attempts she finally conquered Burgie on Colourville Alicante (Ali) in September 2019. She had hoped to return in 2020 but sadly left our world in May 2020 after a short, brave and courageous battle with cancer. She was re-united with Ellie in May 2021 and we like to think of her flying heavenly over the Burgie jumps with Ellie. Burgie will always hold a special place in our hearts, representing the determination, courage and joy of Eireann after completing the event in 2019.

From the highs and lows, tears of frustration to tears of joy, Burgie represents the special and unbreakable bond between horse and rider.

The Boughey family

🐊 Kimberley the Croc! 🐊

Yvonne and her team have been hard at work to give the crocodile at the water jump a makeover! The Kimberley Inn at Findhorn are the long-standing sponsor of our water jump here at Burgie so we thought “Kimberley the Croc” was quite a fitting name!

We simply can’t run without this hard work behind the scenes and the generosity of such great sponsors so if you’re in the area looking for some food and drink we can definitely recommend the Kimberley Inn.

Yvonne Murray is taking a break from painting all of the cross country fences to jump out of a plane instead! She's doing a skydive in aid of Scotland's Charity Air Ambulance. This vital service relies totally on public funding and as all equestrians will know riding accidents in remote locations are a nightmare with the air ambulance often being the only vehicle that can reach the casualty. You can sponsor her here....Thanks! https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/yvonnesbigjump?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=fundraising&utm_content=yvonnesbigjump&utm_campaign=pfp-share&utm_term=e1e23a28c9af4d199dace43c13133395&fbclid=IwAR2BAJVOQPfQ66ygvIptLCO_tqNAYFpKiXjbWTIp5sIUv4Qs7TjJSoAscNk
