Bramham Horse Trials 2013

13th June 2013
It was a boiling hot weekend for this year's Equi-Trek Bramham Horse Trials, which takes place at the beautiful Bramham Park in West Yorkshire. It was definitely a dramatic event, my first shot on Cross Country day was a fall and the trials and tribulations continued until the end of the Show Jumping.
I have images of competitors from all three phases of the the CCI3* and the CCI3* Under 25 classes. If you cannot see any photos of yourself in this blog or would like to see more, please contact me at with the rider's name, horse's name and competition number.
