Blue Peter stars to appear at Royal Windsor Horse Show

Blue Peter presenters Radzi Chinyanganya and Lindsey Russell will be bringing their famously competitive spirits to Royal Windsor Horse Show.

Radzi, 26 and Lindsey, 23, will taking each other on next Saturday, May 17 at the famous Carriage Driving Marathon course used for the Land Rover International Driving Grand Prix at the show.

Former Carriage Driving world gold medallist Wilf Bowman Ripley and his GB teammate Dan Naprous, who is also a horse stunt rider and film star, are the instructors charged with knocking Radzi and Lindsey into shape for the challenge. 

Royal Windsor Horse Show director Simon Brooks Ward said: “The Carriage Driving Marathon is an amazing spectacle and is one of the highlights of Royal Windsor Horse Show. The sport of Carriage Driving requires a combination of precision, skill and true horsemanship. Radzi and Lindsey will be attempting the same obstacles that the professionals will be facing and so they need to come prepared.” 

Radzi and Lindsey will take to the track at 4.30pm straight after the marathon phase of the Carriage Driving competition.

Lindsey said: “There’s definitely been a friendly rivalry developing between myself and Radzi since he joined Blue Peter and I reckon so far ‘team Lindsey’ is well ahead. Radzi’s training has been going well but I think when it comes to the big event itself I can see me putting further daylight between us in our personal head-to-head challenge.”
