Kaley - who is married to horse trainer and equestrian, Karl Cook - shared photos on her Instagram Stories and wrote: "I feel it's my duty and heart to comment on this disgrace. This is not Olympic show jumping. This is a disgusting, classless, abusive representation of our sport in so many ways. This team should be ashamed of themselves.

Kaley was fuming 

"You and your team did not do your country proud or this sport. You make us look bad. Shame on you and godspeed to any animal that comes in contact with you.

"Pure classless behaviour right here. Disgusting on all levels. This is not our sport. This does not represent our sport.

"This rider and her 'trainer' are a disgrace. I#ll buy that horse outright and show it the life it should have. Name your price."

Kaley is an avid horse rider 

She went on to clarify that she was "not kidding," and was absolutely serious about purchasing Saint Boy. 

The governing body of world pentathlon, the UIPM, released a statement about the horse whipping and said: "The EB reviewed video footage that showed Ms Raisner appearing to strike the horse Saint Boy, ridden by Annika Schleu, with her fist during the Riding discipline of the Women's Modern Pentathlon competition.

"Her actions were deemed to be in violation of the UIPM Competition Rules, which are applied to all recognised Modern Pentathlon competitions including the Olympic Games."
