Tim Price will be accompanied by his Badminton-winning wife Jonelle and between them they will be bringing five horses to compete; laying down the gauntlet to the rest of the world’s leading event riders.

The star-studded line-up also includes former Burghley winners, Chris Burton (AUS) and the ever popular Pippa Funnell who enters Nicholas and Barbara Walkinshaw's Billy Walk On, her own and Marek Sebestak's Majas Hope and Jonathan and Jane Clarke's MGH Grafton Street.

A strong British contingent is headed by another former Burghley winner, Oliver Townend, who brings Karyn Shuter, Angela Hislop and Val Ryan's Ballaghmor Class, Ulises and Angela Hislop's Cooley Master Class, although the latter is likely to be withdrawn as he is Oliver’s selected mount for this summer’s European Eventing Championships, having won at Kentucky in the Spring. Last year’s runner-up Piggy French and Trevor Dicken's Vanir Kamira, will be hoping to go one better, while other noteworthy entries include Gemma Tattersall, who has both the Soul Syndicate's Arctic Soul and Caroline Teltsch's Santiago Bay in the mix.  Izzy Taylor and Zara Tindall are both bringing five-star first timers to Stamford this autumn, with Gary Power's PSH Gazelle and Gleadhill House Stud Ltd's Class Affair respectively.

There are 86 entries in total for this year’s 5* competition, with a strong American contingent totalling ten riders, led by Burghley veteran Bruce Davidson Jnr. The international field is further bolstered by four Australian riders: Chris Burton, Isabel English, Bill Levett and Dominic Schram, four French riders: Arthur Chabert, Sebastien Cavaillon, Arthur Duffort, and Clare Loiseau, two Swedes: Johan Lundin and Ludwig Svennerstal in addition to Marcelo Tosi representing Brazil and Christian Chabot from Belgium.

This year’s Land Rover Burghley will be available to view via livestream here on Thursday 5th September and Friday 6th September and via the BBC Red Button on Saturday 7th September. Regular updates and information will be available via Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials’ social media channels.
