Ex-Spice Girl thinks venture will be a hit with mums

Geri Halliwell is to open an all-female horse riding school.

The former Spice Girl – who has a six-month-old daughter Bluebell Madonna – believes her novel new venture, which combines an equestrian centre and crèche, will be a hit with lonely mothers desperate to get out of the house.

Dressed in jodhpurs and riding boots at the London premiere of new movie It’s A Boy Girl Thing, she said: ‘Mums get lonely. And this would get them out, getting fit with other girls. And your children will be looked after while you’re doing it. Heaven.’

The 34-year-old singer once promoted her single Ride It by straddling a horse and riding through the streets of Soho in London.
