Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials’ prize money has increased to boast a six-figure sum for the winner for the first time in the event’s history.
The 2022 winner will take home £100,000 – a £5,000 rise on the £95,000 won by Pippa Funnell and MGH Grafton Street on the last running of the event in 2019.
The overall prize pot this year has risen from £312,000 in 2019 to £320,000, an increase of £8,000. Prize money will go down to 20th place, depending on the number of starters.
