Emily King is amongst the riders and 78 horses from 16 nations currently in action at the FEI Junior European Eventing Championships being held at Bishop Burton College in East Yorkshire.

The event began on Thursday (August 14).

All horses successfully passed the first horse inspection on Wednesday before the Championships were officially opened in a ceremony that evening. During the ceremony, which included displays from the Side Saddle Association and the Devils Horsemen, all nations and riders were formally introduced to the crowd and presented with stable plaques.

Team members were also declared on Wednesday with the British quartet being named as Katie Bleloch on Bulano, Sam Ecroyd on Wodan III, Emily King, the individual silver medallist in 2012, on Brookleigh, and Anna Wilks on Touch of Pleasure.

Defending champions Ireland have in their ranks, Cathal Daniels, a member of their 2013 gold medal-winning team, alongside Susannah Berry, Nessa Briody and Lucy Latta. France and Switzerland, the silver and bronze medal winners last year, have also named strong teams.

The competition, which is for riders aged 14-18, takes place over four days with the dressage element today (Friday) followed by cross-country on Saturday and the final show jumping phase on Sunday.
