This week, the world’s best carriage drivers will come together at the Royal Sandringham Estate for the FEI World Para-Equestrian Driving Championships and FEI CAI2 horse driving trials.

From June Thursday to Sunday the competition will see over 100 competitors representing 10 different nations across the two events.

This is the first time the Para-Equestrian World Championships have been hosted by England, with 26 para-drivers from eight nations set to fight it out for world supremacy.

With the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) Four-in-Hand Championships being held in Caen, France, and the World Singles Championships in Hungary, both in September, drivers of all nationalities are keen to make their mark and gain team selection.

In the horse fours, Georgina Hunt and Wilf Bowman-Ripley have already been selected to represent Great Britain in France, with the third team place still up for grabs.

Among the entries in the Sandringham FEI CAI2 competition is defending World Champion, Boyd Exell OAM2 and fellow countryman Gavin Robson who will join Boyd in Norfolk. More information at www.britishcarriagedriving.co.uk/sandringham
