This year's Equi-Trek Bramham International Horse Trials brought spectacular action against one of Yorkshire's finest backdrops.
Eventing, show jumping, showing, Pony Club, Youngstock classes and new arena eventing brought together over 500 horses for four amazing days at Equi-Trek Bramham International Horse Trials.
More than 50,000 visitors descended on the historic Bramham Park, near Wetherby, to witness a skilful display from leading riders.
The event's showpiece section, the Equi-Trek CCI4*-L, went down to the wire in an exciting last day finale after an action-packed Saturday. Wiltshire's Kitty King came out on top with a near perfect show jumping performance.
Gemma Tattersall topped off an outstanding week with second on 11-year-old mare Jalapeno III and Selina Milne finished third with William Rucker's 11 year old gelding Iron IV.
In the Land Rover CCI4*-S Rio Olympic duo Gemma Tattersall, and the Pebbles Syndicate's Quicklook V dominated from start to finish. Leaders after dressage and show jumping, they were last to go around in the worst conditions but the partnership's vast experience came to the fore as they stormed round.
'Bramham is one of my favourite events and Quicklook is one of my favourite ever horses,' said Gemma.
It was a win for Ireland's Cathal Daniels in the British Horse Feeds CCI-L4*, a well-crafted and faultless performance led him to finish on his dressage score of 33.7 with the chestnut mare Rioghan Rua. Runner-up and finishing best of the Brits to become National U25 champion, was Yasmin Ingham with Sandman 7. They had an unfortunate four faults in the show jumping to complete on a score of 34.1.
'I was delighted with him, the fence was a rider error,' said Yasmin. 'I couldn't fault his performance he jumped out of his skin and he really lifted to the atmosphere out there.'
Next year's Bramham dates are 11-14 June.
