Jordan sluts up a horse show

Nothing’s cuter than a girl on a horse, right? Well, unless that girl is actually in her thirties and dressed up like some Playboy bunny harlot. Which frankly is a gracious description given glamour model Katie Price’s eye makeup. The woman looks like an absolute skank. Though I’m not exactly Katie’s biggest fan, she wrote an article defending why she should have been allowed to attend the very posh Cartier Polo International match, and it was very good. Her logic was generally sound, and it was clear she loves horses and riding and knows what she’s doing more than the majority of the guests.

Since then Katie’s made it her mission to bring horse riding to the common people. And while I applaud the effort, I think Katie missed the reasoning behind her initial snub when the match’s organizers said she was “not the sort of person” they wanted there. She looks like a hooker. And not even a classy hooker you take out to dinner first. The kind that’s best relegated to the backseat of your car. Points for trying, but I don’t think she really pulled it off.

But it was to the strains of her husband Peter Andre’s cheesy 1996 hit record ‘Mysterious Girl’ that Jordan chose to make an entrance at the Horse of the Year Show today. Despite the incongruous accompaniment, the former topless model was cheered and applauded by the crowd as she demonstrated her equestrian skills during her showcase slot at the tweedy event. Wearing a traditional black outfit with a touch of diamanté round the lapels, the 30-year-old and her mount, ‘Jordan’s Glamour Girl’, continued their routine to ‘Call on Me’ by Eric Prydz and ‘Sex Me Up’ by Colour Me Bad.

Jordan, who now prefers to be known as Katie Price, has been keen to shrug off her tacky image and was said to be ‘incredibly upset’ when she was banned from attending the exclusive Cartier International Polo contest in Windsor for ‘being too chavvy’ earlier this year.

She said: ‘There are people out there who have knocked me, even yesterday. I still don’t understand it. They’re asking why is someone like me doing dressage but when have you ever read so much about dressage? What’s wrong with somebody like me doing it? I think I’m bringing glamour to it and I’ve only been doing it three months. I really enjoyed doing it. And everyone here has been very welcoming, there’s no snobbery. People in the horsebox area say ‘good luck’, they can appreciate the fact that I’ve been riding since I was seven. I’m really pleased with what I’ve done here.’

The astute businesswoman, who is worth £50million, also used the show to launched her KP Equestrian clothing line.

Katie is shooting for the 2012 Olympics, and told everyone not to underestimate her. I really appreciate her effort, and it’s great to see someone famous have a hobby she’s passionate about. Most celebs are all about being famous and that’s it. However if she wants to be taken seriously Katie has to compromise to an extent. She can’t just say, “You all are too uptight and need to change everything.” She can still be herself without doing a routine to Colour Me Bad. Obviously it’s her choice, but if she wants to be successful I’d be open to melding tradition with her own style.

Here’s Katie at the 2008 Horse of the Year Show held at the LG Arena in Birmingham, England on Tuesday. Images thanks to Bauer-Griffin and WENN.

    “Not even a classy hooker you take out to dinner first!” LOL! She looks like that Clockwork Orange guy in the header pic.

  2. MSat says:

    She’s wearing a shirt that says “secret lover.”

    Insert bestiality joke here.

  3. KPod says:

    Actually, she looks much more presentable and is far more covered up than is usual for her. The eye make-up is thick, but her lips are not garishly colored, and I cannot see ANY of the flesh of her boobs. I say “Good on yer, Katie!”

    Malcom McDowell 😉 (with mahogany varnish)

    To be honest, I actually admire her work ethic and generally like her (to a certain extent), to hear her interviewed she is intelligent and articulate and is very clear about progressing her career. Those are qualities I admire – her scrapping and old boozing habits are less so.

    But lately she seems ill and very down. Spray-paint makeup aside she’s looking a little healthier in these photos, which I am glad about.

  5. Syko says:

    I just figured with the orange skin and black hair and makeup that she was getting ready for Halloween.

  6. Codzilla says:

    Hate to admit it, but her form looks pretty damn good. Beautiful horse, too. Costly, I’m sure.

    Ps: Pardon my ignorance, but what is a glamour model? Are they different than regular models?

  7. Syko says:

    Damned if I know.

  8. gg says:

    lol, a “glamour model” is somebody who takes off their top for Page 2.
    There seems to be a trend, at least with my friends and her, of women dying their hair either superdark brown or black. This is soooooooo not attractive people. It never looks natural unless you were born with jetblack hair. Looks like a bad wig, makes your face look OLD and highlights your wrinkles. See L’Wren Scott – she looks like Bride of Frankenstein minus the streak. Jordan is just the latest who favors unnatural coloring in all its forms.

    When I saw your headline I assume we would see Jordan in her usual attire, I have to admit, I was quite surprised at how tasteful she’s dressed here. It’s not a good look, but I don’t see any cleavage, which is saying something for her!

  10. Mairead says:

    They pose half/wholly naked for top-shelf magazines, Page 3 in tabloids and car-shows and such like. They can be any height and any level of attractiveness and don’t sell products per se, just the rag they’re appearing in.

  11. geronimo says:

    I’m with KPod. Not doing anyone any harm combined with a very astute business brain and using it to follow her dreams. Go Katie.

  12. doodahs says:

    Dressage is a fun but challenging form of equitation and requires a combination of core strength, balance, and the ability to connect with your horse. I think this girl is amazing in her quest to be accepted in this uber snobby world, just as she is… She hasn’t tried to change herself, she’s just looking for acceptance for her skills. Most of the horse people I know look like horses so I’m sure the stuffy old male judges are enjoying watching her. For some reason I feel that the ‘you can’t join our club’ attitude is coming from the women 8)

    If she’s good at riding and dressage, which as I understand it, is EXTREMELY hard, people should recognize it. She made her money on her own and is trying to achieve a difficult goal for herself. Good for her for having some drive. Sure, she’s heavy on the self tanner and eyeliner, but at least she did it on her own dime, and didn’t have it handed to her, like some people who show horses do. She’s also really smart business and street – wise, which is something that people rag on the famous for not being…throw the woman a bone. Geeze.

  14. Codzilla says:

    gg: Thanks for the info. And I agree about the black hair thing. I’m Mexican with a medium complexion, and when I dyed my hair jet black many years ago, even I looked like a corpse. 😯

  15. doodahs says:

    @hello: I totally agree. I have been riding competitively since I was a kid and I started learning the basics of dressage this year. It takes a LOT of stamina and discipline to master and I think she deserves enormous credit for her current quest to be in the Olympic team. Yep, that’s how far this girl is aiming to take it… and you know what? I believe 100% that she’ll make it or get damn close. She’s an ex glamour model who is aiming for the Olympics… anyone who hasn’t been dedicating themselves seriously to their sport their whole life and who as an adult aims that high, then I say “go get em!” Olympians are a rare breed. And I think she’s proved herself to be more than just a page three girl (who incidentally I always thought was quite beautiful).

    “Skanky” or not, she has made something of her life. From a working class background, she’s already created an estimated personal worth of fifty million pounds by building her empire at age 30. I actually kind of worship that kind of discipline, self drive and determination and I’m not afraid to say it 😛

  16. Carrie says:

    Totally agree about the black hair dye. Her natural hair colour is light brown and she looks FAR prettier like that. How can making yourself look like a pantomime witch do anything other than age you?

  17. snappyfish says:

    Dressage is extremely difficult. Mostly as the horse needs to learn to move in a way that is not inate. It takes years and I mean years to train a good dressage horse and it is very difficult on the rider.

    I saw a clip of her on OSN and she looked pretty good. The horse was an eleven year old Irish Sporthorse (warmblood) which is a younger horse for dressage. They didn’t mention if that was her horse but it does look like the same horse in the above photos

    Good luck to her in her endeavors.
    Oh and the horse world isn’t as snobby as you think. It is really rather inclusive. I mean if you are aiming for the Queen of England’s circle you probably won’t get there, but if your sites are less lofty you might be surprised how nice everyone is.

    Katie looks great and someone sounds very jealous.

  19. I think it’s great that she is doing something that she is obviously very passionate about (as oppose to getting her boobs out) although I don’t think she is going to win any friends in the horse world with pictures like that!
