katie-price-horseBY now you’ll be wondering what Katie Price has been up to. Well, it’s turns out that Jordan’s become a patron of a polo tournament, the Duke of Essex Polo Trophy, featuring a huge shiny, oversized, tin-foil cup, and a trophy.

The Essex Cup features British and Argentinean teams competing against each other in the grounds of the Gaynes Park Estate, near Epping.

Dressed in plastic cowboy hats, leatherette chaps and horse, the best riders in Argentina and America will go at it in a field.

Price will officially start the match, present the trophy to the winning side and take part in that most traditional of all polo events: the charity fashion show.

Says Katie Price:

“I would really like to shatter the image of polo as an elitist sport. It does take an enormous amount of skill and courage to ride a polo pony in a competitive match, but it should be open to everyone to enjoy a great day like this, as well as raise a lot of money for charity.”

Free horses for all! Tally-ho!

Or as the Americans would put it, Tally-ho bitch!”
