Team GBR equestrians were out in force at the weekend during Cheltenham Racecourses Open meeting (11-13 November). They were raising money for Britain's Olympic and Paralympic equestrian teams.
On the opening day of the meeting, known as Countryside Day, the bronze-medal winning eventing team paraded in front of the racecourse stands, and Team performance manager Yogi Breisner gave a Masterclass to Tina Fletcher, Laura Collett and Gareth Hughes.
Other top names were spotted during the day, including Carl Hester, Charlotte Dujardin, Polly Stockton, Richard Waygood, Tina Cook, Simon Crippen and Graham Fletcher.

The meeting provided an excellent three days of racing, with a highlight being the breathtaking wide-margin victory of Great Endeavour in the £150,000 Paddy Power Gold Cup.
Several talented novices also made their mark at the meeting. The likes of Grands Crus, Al Ferof, Fingal Bay, Steps To Freedom, Hinterland and Join Together recorded impressive victories that will have connections dreaming of the Cheltenham Festival in March, while Galaxy Rock suggested the Grand National could be within his compass.
Several young jockeys highlighted their talents with recent pony racing graduates Tom Bellamy and Harry Derham, nephew to champion trainer Paul Nicholls, winning big handicaps, and Conor O'Farrell producing a masterful front-running ride on Decoy to win the Conditional Jockeys' Handicap.
