Russian billionaire and Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich has purchased one of the UK's top show jumping ponies for one of his daughters.

Abramovich bought Pringle, a 12-year-old roan gelding, from Adam and Kerri Walton of Preston, Lancashire.

According to the Telegraph, it is not known how much Abramovich paid for the pony or which one of his daughters was the lucky recipient.

But the report said that he is thought to have spent over 50,000 pounds.

He has five children with his former wife Irina who are believed to live on a 420-acre estate in West Sussex and one with his current partner, Dasha Zhukova.

According to the paper, Waltons bought Pringle in 2005 when one of their other daughter's, Jessica, then 11, became determined to be a show jumper.

With training, he became one of the best in the UK. (ANI)
