Triple World Cup-winning show jumper Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum and her husband Markus are expecting their first baby.

“I feel great. Mark and I are both obviously very happy” said Meredith on her website. “At the moment I feel quite well and as long as I feel good, I’ll ride”.

Her World Cup-winning ride Shutterfly will have a break while she is pregnant.

The baby is due early next year.
