Getting a ‘Skelfie’ with Olympic gold medal winning showjumper Nick Shelton became one of the most popular social media trends after his stunning success in Rio on horse Big Star at the age of 58.

So well-known local equestrian ace Anne Jolly got in on the act at last weekend’s Horse of the Year Show at the NEC in Birmingham.

Anne says she was altered to the show jumping superstar’s presence by a friend who spotted him sitting at the next table to Anne’s party at the annual event.

Nick, who is currently 16/1 for the BBC ‘Sports Personality of the Year’ title after taking gold at his seventh Olympics, was more than happy to pose for yet another photo with our Anne!
