Piggy had an exceptional Burghley, exceeding all of her expectations. Here’s what she had to say:
“If someone had told me I’d finish 2nd at the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials last week, last month, last year I’d never have believed them, but Vanir Kamira was superb all week in all three phases.
“Her dressage was great, she produced her best ever cross country round and a clear in the show jumping.
“Burghley is such a tough test for the horses and it’s ultimately those that have the bravery and courage for the job who rise to the top. Vanir Kamira is so brave and so tough and really tried her heart out for me last week. I’m proud of her performance and hope there might be plenty of good days to look forward to with her.
“Thank you to Trevor, her owner, for sending her to me, to all the team at home who keep the show on the road and to owners, sponsors and supporters who make it all possible. I couldn’t do it without you and am so grateful to be back in this position so soon.”
