Lady Gaga — and 7 other surprising celebrities who love to ride

There are a fair few horse-loving celebs that we all know about — Martin Clunes is president of the British Horse Society; Katie Price has dabbled in dressage in between all the babies, husbands and drama; Jennifer Saunders has appeared in TV programmes about showjumping and eventing, as has Sara Cox. Some other horse riding celebs are a bit more of a surprise, though…

1. Lady Gaga (pictured, above)

In a recent interview with V Magazine the American singer revealed her passion for horses — which all started when her record label gave her a mare for her birthday. She now has a stallion called Tigger. “When I ride him, it always makes me feel so powerful, because he is so powerful. There’s no pressure. I just get on the horse and go,” she said. “Riding has forced me to be fearless pretty quickly,” she explained.

2. Richard Hammond

We associate him with four wheels rather than four legs, but former Top Gear presenter Richard Hammond  has been seen in the saddle on numerous occasions. He took riding lessons in 2008 ahead of an episode of Top Gear where he chased Jeremy Clarkson in a mock hunt. He had hoped to take part in the Ledbury’s famous Golden Button Challenge in 2009, but a fall in the run-up to the ride ruled him out. Richard’s wife is a keen rider and they have a number of horses at their home in Herefordshire.
