Bvlgari sunglasses are a winner at the fantastic and sunny Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials.
Set within the beautiful parklands of Burghley House, Stamford in Lincolnshire, the horse trails offer superb views of Burghley House and are a short stroll from the famous ‘shopping village’. We were exhibiting in the fabulous Burghley Lifestyle Pavillion set amongst the bustling avenues and pavilions of over 600 carefully selected exhibitors offering an unbeatable array of luxury goods, rural crafts, jewellery, furniture, clothing and every gift idea under the sun.
Our stand, Sunnies Designer Sunglasses, attracted a host of activity with customers keen to see the latest in designer frames, and Bvlgari sunglasses with their beautiful Swarovski cryslals and stylish designs proved the most popular.
Burghley is the pinnacle of the eventing year, and home to one of only six such CCI 4 star competitions in the world; a sport designed to be a complete test of horsemanship, attracting the best of international riders and horses in pursuit of the coveted first prize.
The three disciplines of the 3-day Event are designed to be a complete test of horsemanship. The competition begins with the elegance and poise of Dressage on Thursday and Friday. Saturday’s thrilling Cross Country phase is a test of courage and endurance and on Sunday the show jumping in the Main Arena brings the competition to a nail-biting finale.
After the show, Land Rover Burghley’s Event Director, Liz Inman said, “It’s been a wonderful four days of sport. So many people put so much work into making this event such a success and we are indebted to Land Rover for its continued support.
“It’s too early to say for sure, but the indications are that we have had a record year in terms of visitor numbers, helped by glorious weather. Now we start planning for next year.”
For the first time since 2011, a British rider holds the Land Rover Burghley title – Oliver Townend, who won his last Four Star here in 2009. In a great weekend for British sport, fellow compatriots Piggy French and Gemma Tattersall made it a 1, 2, 3.
We can’t wait to be back again next year at such a great event. The 2018 Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials runs from 30th August to 2nd September………see you there!
