A riding school had a taste of showbiz after cast members from The Only Way Is Essex joined them for an afternoon of filming.

Chelmsford Equestrian Centre was host to stars of the ITV reality TV show model Chloe Lewis and footballer Jake Hall, who came for a riding lesson on a date on 6 November.

They were joined by friends Georgia Kousoulou and Tommy Mallet.

Around 18 people made up the film crew.

“The crew and cast were great to watch in action,” Walter added.

After arriving at the centre in Chelmsford, the pair were introduced to their riding school horses before heading to the outdoor arena for a lesson.

Chloe rode Mac, a 15.1hh dark bay gelding, and Jake rode York, a 17.2hh black thoroughbred.

“Jump on a horse for first time today and done a cantar [sic],” Jake tweeted after the lesson.
The cast enjoyed a tour of the livery yard, where they met the largest horse at the centre — 18hh Oreo.

“So much fun horse riding today,” Chloe said later.

Before they left, the reality stars posed with Oreo and the equestrian centre staff for photos.

The stars shared photos of their new equine friends across Twitter and Instagram.

“It has given us very good coverage for the yard,” Walter added.

He said that the centre posted the news and photos last night and it has already been seen by 7,000 people.

The riding scenes had been planned to be included in last night’s season 16 finale, but were cut from the final edit.
