Katie Price has refused to respond to taunts over her riding ability by glamour girl Jodie Marsh.
Jodie recently said in an interview to Zoo magazine: “What does Jordan do on a horse? Dressage — trots around — that’s all she does. She doesn’t jump…She just sits on it and poses.”
Glamour model Jodie Marsh— who has famously hit out many times at Katie Price, aka Jordan — said her own riding abilities were far superior, claiming she got on a horse recently and jumped, cantered and galloped.
But at an exclusive preview of Katie’s spring 2010 equestrian clothing range — KP Equestrian — Katie told H&H: “I’m not going to comment on Jodie’s riding ability. Anyone can learn to ride if they do it properly. Of course I can jump — I just happen to love dressage.”
Katie said she “absolutely loves” her new six-year-old dressage horse Wallace, who she bought last month from Laurens van Lieren in The Netherlands.
Wallace, by Rubiquil out of a mare by Sultan is one of several horses Katie has stabled with Andrew Gould, near her home in Surrey.
“I go to ride first thing every morning, I love it,” she told H&H. “But I’m banned from buying any more horses now — my brother [who handles Katie’s finances] won’t allow it!”
Katie’s latest collection for KP Equestrian — which since its launch has been sold exclusively through Derby House — will from next spring be available in a range of retailers across the UK, and beyond.
The now multi-million pound clothing line will be sold in Spain, Ireland, Australia and Scandinavia.
“Our partnership with Derby House has been fantastic,” said Diana Colbert of KP Equestrian. “But the demand from other retailers and from the equestrian community as a whole has got to a level where we now feel it is time to widen our distribution.”
