Oliver Townend praised his horse Carousel Quest
Oliver Townend was the clear winner of the Burghley International Horse Trials aboard the impressive Carousel Quest.
The pair managed clear rounds in both the cross-country and the showjumping, to win the title by a clear 8.7 marks.
"It was an amazing win, and carousel Quest is a real class ride," said Townend, adding the Burghley title to the one he won at Badminton in May.
A strong finish brought Polly Stockton up from sixth place overnight to finish second on Westwood Poser.
The horse was a late replacement for Regulus, who Stockton ruled out after surgery.
Townend's win earned him the Land Rover Perpetual Challenge trophy and a cheque for £55,000.
"Winning Badminton was wonderful, but to win Burghley as well is just amazing," he added.
