The ones that got away: these images are from the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials, which was won by Germany’s Michael Jung and La Biosthetique Sam.
The event earlier this month was the first in a busy series of high-level events in Britain, followed by the European Eventing Championships at Blair Castle in Scotland, and the Blenheim International Horse Trials in Oxfordshire.
