    “At London 2012 Olympics I was captivated by “the girl with the dancing horse”. Yesterday I spent the day with them, discovering the driving forces behind their incredible journey,” she said.

    Charlotte added that the horses were “amazing”.

    “Such a lovely day yesterday, filming for a new prime-time production coming out later this year, called Driving Force, with the lovely team from Pow TV and Aston Martin,” she said.

    “The horses were amazing as always, and Blueberry especially loved all the fuss and attention he got from the team. Very excited to share more on this soon…”

    POW (Power Of Women) TV specialises in “pioneering entertainment featuring women at its centre” and more information about the series is set to be revealed in the near future.
