Katie Price, aka Jordan, has launched her new equestrian clothing line and revealed that she has set her sights on the 2012 Olympics. Read about it and see photos and a video below.
There’s a lot more to Katie Price aka Jordan than big boobs and flashy behavior. It seems like every since she got her breast reduction surgery she’s been getting more respectable. Well, sorta. The naughty former model turned naughty businesswoman is now hoping to become an Olympic athlete. That’s right. She’s taken her life long love of horses and started on a course to enter into the world of competitive equestrian. She has taken up dressage and debuted at the Hickstead show jumping ground (video below).
Not just that, but she’s designed and modeled a line of equestrian fashion that you can see in the pictures here. I’m sure the men will see a lot more in the photos, but all I could think of was pepto bismol. Can’t imagine why.
Not too long ago, Price was refused entry to the hoity-toity Cartier International polo event. It seems she wasn’t their kind of people. She made sure everyone knew about the snub, mentioning it in every photo shoot and interview she’s done since then.
“Horses should be for everyone – little girls, glamour girls, working- class girls like me,” she declared in the wake of the Cartier debacle. “I know more about fetlocks and forelocks than most of the celebrities invited. All my life I’ve been surrounded by horses. I earned my pocket money sweeping out stables and I now have six horses.”
Well, payback’s a bitch and she’s certainly gotten hers. She has since been named the face of Hoof in Town. The British Equestrian Federation campaign to encourage the interest of youth in three-day eventing. The program is hoping to improve interest in the very English sport for the 2012 Olympics in London.
“Some people may think horse riding is only available to a select few but Katie’s interest in riding and her open determination to do well at dressage are just the messages we want to give to young people today,” says head of the campaign Barbara Cassani.
Apparently, the people at Cartier International are deciding that Price can attend their events after all. Whoops. Guess they made a little mistake there.
Price says she’s determined to get to the level at which she can be competitive in the Olympics. Considering her track record (so to speak), she’ll probably do it.
