It was another bright start to the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials today (Friday, September 1) which saw Zara Phillips riding High Kingdom.

It was the first outing for the Royal rider on her much-loved horse and she took to the main arena at 10.24am to compete in the first stage of the event - dressage.

BBC presenter Clare Balding was also spotted catching up with previous winner of the international event William Fox-Pitt.
