Clare Balding to be guest of honour at Cotswold Riding for the Disabled AGM

TV presenter and author Clare Balding will be the guest of honour at the Cotswold Riding for the Disabled annual meeting on Monday.

The charity, who are based at the world-renowned Cheltenham Racecourse, have invited the BBC Sports presenter to make a speech at the meeting.

She will also speak to fans and sign copies of her book, "The Racehorse who learned to dance" prior to the meeting getting underway.

General Manager for Cotswold Riding for the Disabled, Clare Jenkins, said: ""Clare has been a phenomenal ambassador for Riding for the Disabled.

"The retired racehorse in her book finds a new career in the RDA being ridden by people with disabilities."

"When Clare appeared on Good Morning Britain recently, she took one of our riders, 10-year-old Kitty, to be alongside her on the famous sofa.

"Her book is all about the heart-warming 'journey' for the racehorse and the riders."

Clare Balding will be signing copies of her book and meeting fans in the Crest Room at Prestbury Park from 5.30pm on Monday, September 9.

She will then take part in the AGM and make a speech to members in the Sovereign Suite from 6.30pm.
