The Festival of British Eventing is a unique event. A one day event is where each competitor has to complete all 3 of the phases, Dressage, Show Jumping and Cross Country on one day.
Weather for the day promised to be a mixed bag so we were dressed for "all weather"...
After the sun came the rain and so we decided to declare an early lunch. Foie Gras and a Gatcombe Cheeseburger accompanied by some local ale and we were off!

|These boats are such a nuisance!|
|Shit! It's William Fox-Pitt!|
The last show of the day was that of the English Foxhounds. And what a show it was! Even though it would take 3 weeks to get the stench of dog shit off my clothes it was a lot of fun to run with the hounds!
Life is like a Wild Horse. You ride It or It rides You!
