If you want to significantly increase your chances of victory in the contest, pull a Natterjack.
Natterjack, a 14-year-old ex-racehorse, was painted in Britain’s colours at Barbury Castle Estate in Wiltshire. The effort took a team of four five painstaking hours to complete, at which point top event rider Laura Collett saddled him up and took him for a cross-country spin. [Daily Mail]
