Show Jumpers

No, it's not a feature about the lovely wooly jumpers worn on the show by BB housemates past and present (remember BB2's Elizabeth and her particularly hideous effort?)

Rather, the group were set the final part of their weekly task this afternoon, the gymkhana practice.

Having-been learning how to mount and dress a horse over the past two days, they finally got to strap on their foam fillies and colts for a gallop around the garden course.

But not before they'd fully understood the somewhat amusing Rules:

"Failure to canter in the correct horse-like manner may result in failure for the whole group," revealed Scott, as he read from the laminate supplied by Big Bro.

"How to canter: whilst completing the round you may not simply run like a human; you must canter like a horse," he continued, to the sound of giggles from the group.

"Housemates must choose one foot to be the forefoot and one foot to be the hind foot. Both the forefoot and the hind foot should face forward".

Erm, quite how they would make one foot face backwards if they wanted to, is beyond us! Everyone cracked-up at the very notion.

Donning her riding gear and 'wearing' her steed, Steph was first to trot around the course.

But it was Gos who was unanimously considered the funniest-looking, as he knackered himself out by completing the whole course dressed in oversized jodhpurs, jacket and hat.

The housemates' riding skills will be tested on Wednesday afternoon, so check back after then to find-out how they got on and whether they'll become champions or chumps in the shopping budget stakes.
