Katie Price 'wants to be a competitive horse racer'

Katie Price is setting her sights on competitive horse racing for her next career move.

The 37-year-old star has always been a fan of riding, and stands out from the crowd thanks to her giant pink horse box. She owns five horses already, but is now said to be searching for the perfect animal to help her ride to victory.

According to an insider, mother-of-five Katie will kick off lessons in the coming weeks, in the hope she'll be ready to compete in a charity race next year (17).

"Katie’s taking this very seriously and believes she has the talent and passion," a source told The Sun newspaper. "Her priority now is finding the right racehorse. She has her sights set on a black beauty she wants to buy. If the charity race goes well, the next step will be competitive racing."

Former glamour model Katie and her horse Jordan's Glamour Girl competed in the Dressage to Music section at the Horse of the Year Show in Birmingham back in 2008.

Apparently, Katie's goal is to compete in a race at Cheltenham.

The Loose Women panellist has been inspired by former Olympic athlete Victoria Pendleton, who swapped her racing bike for a horse just 12 months ago, and competed in the St James's Place Foxhunter Chase at Cheltenham Festival on Friday (18Mar16).

Despite previously admitting she was unsure whether or not she'd make it round the course, Victoria ended up finishing in fifth position.

"It's probably the greatest achievement of my life," Victoria told BBC News after the race. "I'm overwhelmed - thank you to everyone who has made this possible. I feel honoured.

"I can't believe I did it and I got around. There are things I would like to do again but this horse is a legend. It's the most fun I have ever had."
