Horse riding dog attracts crowds

Freddie the dog is an expert horse rider
Freddie the dog's amazing horse riding skills have got kids flocking to a farm in Gloucestershire.

He likes leaping on the back of a Shetland pony called Daisy, who takes him for a trot around the field.

Freddie's owner Patricia Swinley said her pet was a "natural" at riding. "The children love to come and see him. I guess it is a rather peculiar sight."

She added: "When he first saw Daisy, he rushed across the yard and just jumped on her back."
