Students from almost twenty countries have taken part in an international horse riding competition at a Norfolk agricultural college.
The Student Riders Nations Cup, held at Easton College, Norwich, kicked off a four-day equestrian event with the dressage on Friday, August 23.
And the Great Britain team - Emily Latham-Taylor, Libby Seed and Sophia Ramsoy - took part in the first day's event, marking the first time the contest has been held in the UK for five years.
Sophie Hall, chairman of voluntary organisation Great Britain Student Riders, said: "We have a fantastic turnout of 18 countries.
"Student riding is unique - we compete on unknown horses so it is a true test of rider ability rather than horse power.
