Reindeers may be pulling Santa's sleigh but a village on the Norfolk and Suffolk border had different four-legged animals for its Christmas treat as a stable went on a walk with horses dressed in festive tinsel and Santa hats.
Little Lodge Farm, in Santon Downham, looks after 45 horses on its site which is also home to Forest Lodge Holidays.
Owners of the horses came together with horses of all sizes and ages donning their best winter outfits to parade through the village with the hope of bringing some festive cheer.
More than 15 horses and riders braved freezing temperatures as they stopped at the Santon Downham Centre for traditional mince pies and mulled wine.
Horse owner, Derek Reeve, said: 'The day has gone really well, with the horses all behaving themselves.
