The Rensburg Sheppard Mix & Match Competition proved as exciting as ever for the large crowd of spectators who flocked to Bramham this weekend to enjoy the blazing sunshine and high standard of competition. The Mix & Match was won, for the third year running by Piggy French and Paul Barker who were closely followed by the husband and wife team of Pippa and William Funnell.

Bramham International Horse Trials organiser, George Lane Fox, was presented with a British Equestrian Federation Medal of Honour in recognition of his outstanding services to the sport of eventing. There are three Medals of Honour presented each year across all the equestrian disciplines. Presenting the award, Hugh Thomas, President of the BEF, said "We are delighted to recognise the extraordinary contribution George has made in a number of equestrian spheres, but particularly in hosting the Bramham Horse Trials for the last 32 years".
