Phillips has entered High Kingdom, the horse on whom she won a Team Silver medal at the 2012 London Olympic Games and also at the 2014 FEI World Equestrian Games in Normandy, France. Phillips won Individual Gold and Team Silver medals at the 2006 World Equestrian Games in Aachen, Germany, and she was a member of the Gold Medal-winning British Event Team at the 2007 European Championship in Pratoni, Italy. She also won the 2005 European Championship title after clinching Individual and Team Gold medals on home soil at Blenheim.” (http://rk3de.org/queen-elizabeths-granddaughter-zara-phillips-to-compete-in-2015-rk3de/)

Looking forward to watching and photographing Dressage this afternoon!! I’ll also be jaunting across the Cross Country course this afternoon and snapping a few photos to showcase of all the gorgeous jumps.
