Give us the lowdown on your current top horse
Delgado is the king of the stable. He has just got to grand prix, and is my much-loved pet. He’s so friendly and has been easy to train because he has a totally relaxed persona. Then there’s the queen of the yard, Habouche (Holly), who is totally different. I rode her at Myerscough Premier League recently and we did a nice, tidy prix st georges on the first day. The next day, I decided to put my foot down a bit, and realised once you up the power you can’t go back.
What was the last book you read?
I recently finished Michelle Obama’s Becoming, and also started reading Outer Order Inner Calm, which is about decluttering your home – but I gave up on that by page four.
