Twenty pantomime horses will be lining up to compete against each other in a fun run taking place to raise money for the Bristol equine charity HorseWorld.

The race is taking place on Sunday as part of Bath Racecourse's family fun day and will be followed by seven real horse races.

Among the runners is charity managing director Mark Owen who will be dressed as HorseWorld's mascot Horace.

HorseWorld rescues and rehomes animals which have been ill-treated.
