    What hardy souls these work riders are

    We particularly like the grey colt. Richard Fahey has obviously feeding his horses plenty of carrots as they go up the gallops an hour before the sun rose in North Yorkshire

    What a masterpiece!

    Meanwhile, here is a pug riding a horse

    Ben Hobday makes sure that each and every one of his horses (and ponies) gets exercised

    Could this be a future superstar?

    Former England and Gloucester rugby player and part-owner of the great National Hunt horse Monbeg Dude, watches his 2016 Grand National hope enjoy a steady canter up the gallops (although it looks like Monbeg Dude has other ideas about the “steady” part)

    We were as shocked as Craig Barr when young event rider Sam Ecroyd popped up on our TV screens on Saturday night on the ITV dating show, Take Me Out (he got a date)

    And congratulations to this week’s Tweet of the Week winner

    It looks like eventer Lauren Shannon’s dog is gearing up for the 2016 season

    Been told I haven't been using enough leg…
