A group of horse riders in Upminster dressed up their dogs and horses in their best fancy dress for Cancer Research UK.
The stables in Harwood Hall Lane raised £1,700 at a charity livery horse show on Saturday, September 14.
Kelly Smith was inspired to host the fundraiser after one of their riders, Jake Morgan, 22, was diagnosed with lung cancer.
She told the Recorder: "It was a really good day and everyone had a good time.
"The amount of effort people put into the fancy dress was incredible.

Kelly added that the horse and hound class which saw participants take first their horse and then dog round a course, was one of the most popular events.
