Jennifer Saunders sets out to re-engage the nation with the equestrian sports that she has known and loved all her life - eventing, showjumping and dressage. In the first of a two-part series, Jennifer relives her pony club youth at an event in her native Cheshire. At The Horse Show at Olympia she is so inspired by the occasion that when interviewed by Clare Balding she commits herself to riding in the Badminton Horse Trials. Having hardly ridden at all in the last ten years she gets lessons from champion showjumper Tim Stockdale and champion eventer Piggy French. At Gatcombe Park in Gloucestershire she receives some advice from Princess Anne who tells her that the thing most people forget about horses is that they can kill you even when they are on your side!
