Residents from several homes enjoyed a trip out to the Portman Horse Trials at the Rushmore Estate on the Dorset-Wiltshire border.

The parties had a champagne welcome at a VIP marquee, picnic lunches, cream teas and close-up viewing positions for the cross country, show jumping and dressage competitions.

The Trials help world-class riders prepare for international events such as Badminton and Burghley, while giving less experienced challengers a taste of competition.  Among those taking part was Olympian William Fox-Pitt, who won an award we sponsored.
