Blenheim win for Christopher Burton by narrowest of margins|
A fast cross-country round by Australia's Christopher Burton and Cooley Lands secured the win for the pair in the SsangYong Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials CIC3* for eight- and nine-year-olds.
Christopher was the only rider to make the optimum time of six minutes 49 seconds, finishing a comfortable four seconds inside.
"I'm delighted really to have the ride on him I rode him as a seven-year-old and [his owner] Kate Walls has been doing a great job on him ever since, although I have to say I've been pining over having him back," said Christopher, who also finished third in yesterday' Event Rider Masters (ERM) section with Graf Liberty.
