Make a Date with Oliver!

Star event rider Oliver Townend has launched his first glossy calendar, a radical move in the equestrian world, which does not usually go in for this sort of thing.

The calendar shows the Huddersfield-born rider and his horses in and around his yard near Ellesmere in Shropshire.

One of the country's top eventers, Oliver, 27, has built up quite a fan base and has more than 7,500 followers on facebook and Twitter, reports Horse & Hound.

"The photo-shoot was good fun and a chance for some of my horses to do something different," said Oliver. "People are always asking about how the new place is going and then I bumped into the photographer, Michael Blann, and we thought it might be a nice thing to do.
