Burnett Withdraws Harbour Pilot from Burghley

Hannah Sue Burnett (The Plains Va.) has elected to withdraw Jacqueline Mars’ Harbour Pilot from further competition at the 2014 Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials. The Karen E. Stives High Performance Eventing Grant recipients had a brilliant round over Captain Mark Philips’ cross country track on Saturday to rise to 7th place on the strength of clear jumping and an efficient round that saw them only collect 13.2 time faults.

Due to concern over a minor injury, Burnett, in consultation with the Team Veterinarian and Chef d’Equipe, has decided it is in the best interest of the 11-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding to not contest the show jumping phase this afternoon, and save him for another day as a bright future lies ahead for the pair.

All of Harbour Pilot’s connection look forward to seeing him competing again soon.
