HORSE RIDING

Charlotte Dujardin and her new horse Gio, aka Pumpkin, won a bronze medal for Team GB in individual dressage on day five in Tokyo, incredibly her sixth Olympic medal. If you fancy trying horse-riding, there are plenty of options in the New Forest, including brockenhur­stridingst­ables.co.uk, which offers one- and two-hour rides as well as special rides for the beginner and more advanced riders, and Coombe Stables, coombeeque­strian. com, currently offering walking hacks only. Contact operators for prices, more informatio­n about what they have available, and Covid-19 restrictio­ns.

If you’d like to get close to a four-legged friend but not actually ride one, head for Brockenhur­st Donkey Walks, a mile from Brockenhur­st village, where you can brush, walk and generally hang out with an adorable donkey, £40 per donkey per hour for two people. You can book one or two hours. More info: brockenhur­stdonkeywa­lks.com
