ITV takes Jennifer for a ride

Two-part horsey series for Saunders

Jennifer Saunders is filming a two-part documentary about horses for ITV.

The 53-year-old – who is ridden since she was a child – has been training daily and is aiming for a slot at the Badminton horse trials next month.

Her series Jennifer Saunders In The Saddle is due to air in August and will also include British Olympic hopefuls including Piggy French and Lauren Shannon.

She has already visited the horse trials at Gatcombe, where she waked the course with the Princess Royal and observed some advanced dressage tests.
