THE leading British riders, led by Ginny Elliot and Ian Stark, face strong overseas opposition at the Toyota Bramham International Three-Day event in Yorkshire this weekend. There are a number of former Bramham winners in the field, including Pippa Nolan and Kristina Gifford. As it is a three- star event, horses with fewer than 30 jumping penalties can qualify for the major competitions such as Badminton and Burghley. The course for tomorrow's cross-country has 10 new fences. Bramham also plays host to the country's top juniors, in the British Young Riders Championship.

How to get there: Bramham Park, Wetherby, West Yorkshire, is close to A1, five miles south of Wetherby. Admission: today pounds 5 adults, dressage starts 9am; tomorrow pounds 7, cross-country 8.30am; Sunday pounds 6, show jumping 10am; children under 12 free.
