    Equestrian social media posts of the week

    Whoops — Richard Johnson’s wife, Fiona, incurs four faults

    Reigning European showjumping champion, Martin Fuchs, bid farewell to the Swiss snow yesterday (14 Januray), en-route to the warmer climes of Palm Beach for the Winter Equestrian Festival (we would quite like to be able to join in right now…)

    And here is Cian O’Connor and his superstar PSG Final having a school in Palm Beach — scopey or what?!

    No rider? No problem

    Sound on for this one — Stratagem sprouted wings under Harry Cobden when en-route to winning at Doncaster on Monday

    Superstars Tiger Roll and Envoi Allen were among the Gordon Elliott horses who headed to the beach on Monday

    The snow is beautiful but it’s not terribly practical, still Jedd O’Keeffe’s string plough on, on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales nonetheless

    We think it’s time for another Buttons update…

    And congratulations to this week’s Social Media Post of the Week winner…
