Competitors at the Isleham Horse Show had another opponent to contend with this year - the weather.

Heavy frost meant some riders stayed away and the start of the show-jumping and cross-country elements had to put back on each of the two days.

Macmillan Cancer Relief and Epilepsy Action will benefit from the event.

Organiser Jackie Seddon said: "I think the riders appreciated the effort everyone put in towards coping with the frost and we had quite a few spectators.
