  5. Balloting: In the event of over subscription entries received for horses that have already qualified for the Final will be balloted first
  6. Conflict of Interest: Within the equestrian community there may be times when conflicts occur. For guidance, it has been determined that a perceived/potential conflict of interest could arise in the event that an appointed judge has a previous or current connection to a horse entered in the competition. Examples of such connections and interests include, but not limited to, the following. The judge has; bred or previously owned the horse or acted as an agent in its sale; previously competed, trained or kept the horse at livery; previously or currently had a financial or other interest in the horse. In the event that a judge/owner/rider (or their agent) knows of, or should know of, any potential and/or perceived conflict of interest in a horse entered in the competition they must declare this to the Organiser as soon as it is known. Steps will be taken to manage it as practically as possible. Any potential conflicts will be written and displayed next to the scoreboard. Conflicts at the Final will be avoided and managed by Burghley Horse
  7. It is a condition of entry that all riders, owners, grooms, and their connections/relatives, must conduct themselves and communicate in a respectful manner towards the public, officials, and all other parties present or entered in the competition. Such behaviour includes respect for the Judges and their decisions, which are final. Offensive behaviour, and/or other violations of this condition, may lead to sanctions such as disqualification and future bans
  8. Equine Influenza: No horse may take part unless it has a current vaccination against equine influenza which complies with the following conditions: Two injections for primary vaccination not less than 21 days and not more than 92 days apart. A first Booster injection must be given within 7 months (not more than 215 days) after the 2nd injection of primary vaccination. Subsequent booster injection must be given at intervals of not more than one year commencing after the first booster injection. In order to compete a horse/pony must also have had a vaccination within 6 calendar months and 21 days of the competition but no injection should have been given 7 days before the competition
