Horses strut their stuff and aim for Olympics
Braided hair, hooves painted and dancing to the beat of their rider - the gymnastic horses strutted their stuff on the first day of the Tattersalls International Horse Trials.
First comes the dressage, next the cross country - a longer distance than the Grand National - and finally, this weekend, the 35,000 expected will be treated to the show jumping.
Recognised as the All-Ireland of eventing, Tattersall's is the stepping stone to the Olympics, according to organisers.
Ezib Power - sister of Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Robbie Power - certainly has Tokyo 2020 in her sights.
"There's a lot of work to be done in those four years - it's a long time, but you're always looking towards that," she said.
