Robert Benson, the first Lord Bingley, built the Queen Anne house at Bramham in 1698 and laid out the grounds as rolling parkland, which today is the setting for the Toyota Bramham International Three-Day Event, one of six internationally rated events held in Britain. Twelve nations are competing this year for the Bramham Trophy and entries include Pippa Nolan, last year's winner. The changes to this year's cross-country course of 28 fences have made little difference to the length, but will increase stamina requirements and consequently riders will need to judge their pace tomorrow. Dressage continues today, with the show jumping on Sunday.

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 at 9am; tomorrow pounds 7, cross-country 8.30am; Sunday pounds 6, show jumping 10am; children under-12 half-price.
