BBC Sport - World Equestrian Games: Zara Phillips returns on High Kingdom

Return harder than expected - Phillips

Olympic silver medallist Zara Phillips says her return to top-class equestrian has been harder than expected after giving birth to her first daughter in January.

She will ride her horse High Kingdom at this weekend's World Equestrian Games in France hoping to secure a place on the team for the 2016 Olympics.

Phillips won gold at this event in 2006 as well as being part of the team that won silver at the 2012 Olympics in London.
