It’s coming up to summer show season and parents and children up and down the country will be preparing costumes for the fancy dress class. Many hours will be spent slaving away at the sewing machine or painting perfect designs, all hopeful for a red rosette.

We asked Horse & Hound readers to send in their best efforts and we received countless pictures of wonderful outfits.

Here are some of our favourite costumes from Frozen’s Elsa to dressage star Charlotte Dujardin…
