Broadcaster Clare Balding visited Brixton’s Ebony Horse Club yesterday to celebrate the launch of her first children’s book The Racehorse Who Wouldn’t Gallop.

The club was the perfect place for the launch of a book which, as well as the racehorse, features a horse-mad 10-year-old and a naughty pony.

Clare Balding was joined by BBC presenter Lauren Laverne who interviewed her about the book.
