Ecogold-riders Hawley Bennett, Jessica Phoenix, Rebecca Howard and Kyle Carter are going to Burghley

Ah...Burghley (pic from our 2009 trip)
Well... we knew Equine Canada would give four grants for riders to compete at the 2011 Burghley Horse Trials and the riders have just been confirmed today. 

All four selected are Ecogold-riders:
  • Hawley Bennett on Gin & Juice
  • Jessica Phoenix on Exponential
  • Rebecca Howard on Riddle Master
  • Kyle Carter on Madison Park

Congrats and good luck!!!! 

We went to Burghley in 2009 and there were only 2 Canadian riders competing at the time. It's fantastic to see the progress of the Canadian Team since then (maybe it has to do with some saddle pads they've been using....lol!)

Here's our video of Kyle at Burghley in 2009.
