Ms Massingale said: 'It all started when I was riding Comet and I would just tap my leg and Louis would jump on.

'Now all I have to do is tap Comet's back and Louis is straight there. He doesn't need anymore encouragement than that.

'Louis rides whenever he likes really, sometimes just in the area sometimes he comes out for a longer wander.'

Although Louis is an intrepid explorer, he won't be caught riding out in the rain.
