The event was the third of five national trials weekends taking place throughout the summer, ahead of the British championship, which will take place in Cirencester in September.

Carriage driving is no stranger to the royal estate, as the sport is a well-known pastime of the Duke of Edinburgh.

The duke represented Great Britain in international competitions for many years after taking up the sport in the 1970s. MLNF15AF06485
