Katie Price is set to captain a team in a celebrity polo match at the British Open Show Jumping Championships.

The match will take place on Sunday 19 April and will be two chukkas long. There will be three players in each team — two professionals and one celebrity.

Katie, aka glamour model Jordan, will captain Team KP Equine against a team headed by a yet to be confirmed celebrity.

“I’m really excited about being part of the British Open’s celebrity arena polo match this April,” said Katie.

“I’ve played polo before and really enjoyed it so I’m definitely looking forward to going head-to-head with another celebrity and hopefully scoring a few goals!”

A spokesman for the British Open said: “As one of the fastest and most dangerous sports, polo is a truly thrilling spectator sport and with 2 gutsy celebrities at the helm expect fun and fireworks!”

The British Open takes place from 16-19 April at the NEC in Birmingham.
