Held at Berkshire College of Agriculture in Burchetts Green more than 200 horses and riders jumped in classes across the day.

Organised by High Wycombe Riding Club, money raised from the Open Indoor Show Jumping Competition went to charity Breast Cancer Campaign.

Pink prizes were in store for class winners donated by Atlas Equestrian from Woodcote and pink horse exercise sheets were on sale on the day with proceeds going to the charity.

"I'm just so impressed that people turned in the weather they had and supported it," said club committee member Ann James.

A basket of pink flowers was donated by Callaghan's Florists of Prestwood to the rider who collected the most sponsorship money.

The event took place on October 20.
