Eventer takes to camel riding
Leading eventer Laura Collett will take part in her first camel race next month.
According to Horse and Hound, the camels will charge over one furlong at Chepstow, in aid of Bristol charity Paul's Place, which supports disabled adults.
"It should be good fun, and I think it will get quite competitive," Laura told the equestrian magazine.
There will be heats of races where Laura will line up against other "jockeys" including At the Races presenter Matt Chapman and actor Sean Gleeson, before the final.
