Katie Price has slammed the organisers of a polo tournament after being refused entry to one of the most prestigious matches of the season.

The former glamour model accused the people behind the Cartier Polo International of “pure snobbery” after she was allegedly turned away from the event, which took place at Guards Club last Sunday (27 July).

Writing in The Times newspaper, the 30-year-old, who has ridden since she was a child, said horses should be for everyone.

“I paid £6,000 for my table at Guards, but my manager was told that I was not the sort of person they wanted,” she wrote.

“Horses should be for everyone — little girls, glamour girls, working-class girls like me.”

The mother of three recently took part in a charity polo match at Cowdray Park and has been asked to ride in a dressage masterclass at the Horse of the Year Show in October.

“I know more about fetlocks and forelocks than most of the celebrities invited. All my life I’ve been surrounded by horses, I earned my pocket money sweeping out stables and I now have six horses.”
