Trudi Martin’s dream to ride around the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials course came true this month when she took part in the SEIB Insurance Brokers Burghley Sponsored Ride.

All proceeds from the ride go to localand equine charities - The British Horse Society, World Horse Welfare and Ebony Horse Club.

Trudi, from Boston, raised a total of £550 in sponsorship money for the SEIB Burghley Sponsored Ride beneficiaries.

The ride took place over a 12km course in Burghley Park, allowing participants to follow in the footsteps of great three-day event riders, including the 2016 Burghley winner Chris Burton and Nobilis 18.

Whilst jumping the fences was not allowed, riders were able to get up close to many of the legendary jumps and splash about in the landmark Burghley Trout Hatchery.

Trudi participated in the ride with her six-year-old gypsy cob Denbith.
