The Olympic medal-winning athlete Zara Tindall, who starred in a shoot for Town & Country earlier this year, is renowned for her passion for all things equestrian. Here, she joins the professional event riders Sir Mark Todd and Harry Meade for a drive around this year’s Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials cross-country course in a Range Rover Velar.

The three riders, who are all competing against each other at this weekend’s four-star event, held in the beautiful surroundings of Burghley, explore some of the more challenging fences on the course, including the Lion Bridge, the Land Rover Trout Hatchery, the All-New Discovery Valley and Storm Doris.
