A donations page set up in the wake of an A9 crash where four horses died has raised more than £5,000.
The GoFundMe page was launched 24 hours after the horror incident involving a lorry and a horsebox, which had broken down on the A9.
International eventer Nick Gauntlett and his party were just 30 minutes away from arriving at Blair Castle Horse Trials when the collision happened.
Four horses being transported to event were killed and two people were taken to hospital.
The A9 was closed south of Perth for more than seven hours as emergency services worked to clear the collision.
Fellow event rider Sarah Ettridge set up the online collection after what she described as the “tragic” events on the A9.
She wrote: “Nick, his family and grooms were heading to Blair Castle International Horse Trials with four horses, including his fabulous stallion Party Trick and three belonging to American event rider Sophie Hulme.
I hope the knowledge that this fund will go to good causes will help in some small way.”
“Fortunately Nick and all passengers had all just got out of the wagon and are safe.
“They have requested that all monies raised are split between the British Horse Society Road Safety Campaign and Sports Horse Breeding GB.”
Nick posted a message of thanks on social media for the support.
He wrote: “Thank you Sarah Ettridge, let’s try in some small way to make something positive out of this horror, it will help us all.”
