Gwyneth Paltrow Hates Horses But Daughter Apple, 6, Is 'Quite An Equestrian'

Horse hater Gwyneth Paltrow has enlisted her good friend Stella McCartney to take her 6-year-old daughter, Apple, to riding lessons.

"Apple has turned into quite an equestrian and as I can't bear horses or riding Stella takes her out," Gwyneth told the Daily Mail. "I sent Stella a picture of Apple having a riding lesson wearing a PETA T-shirt and said, 'She's your child!' They have really bonded."

Stella is pregnant with her fourth child and not riding at the moment but enjoys watching her young friend ride.

"Apple's ­gorgeous and really good on horseback," she said. "Better than that, I've turned her vegetarian."

Gwyneth recently told Vogue UK that she hates horses.

"I hate horses and have nothing really to do with them," she said. "The other day I actually sent Stella a picture because there was Apple, just sitting on her horse, wearing a pineapple T-shirt. I just texted her saying, 'surely this is your child?'"
