One of the newest additions to the British Eventing championships, the Belsay Horse Trials, took place this weekend.

Five hundred competitors from all over the country descended on the Northumberland beauty spot to enjoy two days of eventing in glorious sunshine.

Event organiser Laura de Wesselow says it is one that is becoming a firm favourite on the British Eventing calendar.

Thousands turned out to watch.

During the two-days five hundred competitors battled it out over three disciplines; dressage, show jumping and the challenging cross country course.
