The Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials is celebrating a half-century of top competition this year, having first taken place in 1961. The pinnacle of the autumn Eventing season, Burghley has a long and successful association with Land Rover, which marks its seventh year as title sponsor in 2011.



Land Rover UK Managing Director Colin Green said: Land Rover has a great relationship with Burghley and we are excited to be a part of the anniversary celebrations for the event's unique 50-year achievement.

The occasion gives us a superb opportunity to showcase our vehicles in a setting that perfectly reflects important aspects of our brand, and to demonstrate our on-going support for equestrian sports and countryside pursuits. It also allows us to reveal to thousands of spectators the contemporary design, quality and technical sophistication that help define Land Rover today, not least in the outstanding new Range Rover Evoque.
