Patriotically-painted Natterjack serves up a timely reminder that the Barbury International Horse Trials are staged from Thursday 28 June to Sunday July 1. The event culminates on Sunday with the CIC three star competition and provides the last competitive practice for the majority of top event riders and their horses before the Olympics eventing phase begins in Greenwich Park four weeks later. It's also the perfect consolation for anyone whos missed out on an Olympic ticket.


Laura says that Natterjacks Union Jack livery, Put an extra spring in his jump! Harmless liquid chalk was used to create the flag.


Laura, 22, has represented Team GB at every level in eventing since 2005.


Advance tickets for the Barbury horse trials are 12, with under-12s free. Further information from www.barburyhorsetrials.co.uk.


Barbury International Horse Trials (28 June 1 July), sponsored by St. Jamess Place Wealth Management featuring the Wiltshire County Show and CGA Festival of Food (30 June-1 July)
