Oliver Townend had a busy weekend at Weatherbys Bank Cholmondeley Castle Horse Trials in Cheshire with 10 rides across the BE100 and novice sections.

Unfortunately when he reached the water with Cooley Q in novice section H, things did not go quite according to plan…

Although rather wet, horse and rider were quickly back on their feet.

Full report from Cholmondeley Castle in Horse & Hound magazine, on sale Thursday 29 July.
