  • Yesterday (Sunday 4 September 2022), Piggy March won her first Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials title on her 18th attempt at the Lincolnshire event. Piggy was riding Trevor Dickens’ 17-year-old bay mare, Vanir Kamira, who she fondly describes as “a pain 362 days of the year”.

    Known as ‘Tilly’ at home, Vanir Kamira is by Camiro De Haar Z and out of a Dixi mare. Piggy brought the mare out in 2012, before the ride passed to Izzy Taylor for a season, followed by Paul Tapner. Piggy regained the ride in 2017, and since then the mare has shone brightest on the biggest stages.

    Prior to her brilliant Burghley performance, her best results included second at Burghley in 2017 and 2019, fifth at Burghley in 2018, a win at Badminton in 2019 and a win in the CCI4*-S at Hartpury in the summer of 2022.

    Here, we take a look at just some of the highlights from her career with Piggy so far…
