Geri Horner delighted fans on Saturday with an incredible update from her sprawling family farm.

Taking to Instagram, the former Spice Girl posted a joyous snapshot of herself gazing adoringly at her new racing filly called Hildie. The 50-year-old star looked radiant in her riding gear featuring a chocolate-hued riding hat, an equestrian body protector and a cream jumper.

In her caption, Geri revealed her horse's new racing name – and it's the perfect tribute to her chart-topping musical career.

She penned: "Hildie our new horse now has her official racing name… 'It's Raining Men'! [horse emoji] #girlpower #ghr_racing."

A third remarked: "Haha love it!! Brilliant cover version too," and a fourth added: "Love it," followed by a slew of red heart emojis.

This isn't the first time Geri has taken to Instagram to celebrate her equestrian achievements. Back in March, the flame-haired songstress paid tribute to her horse Hector after his first big race at Newbury.

Captioning a string of photos and videos from the big day, Geri penned: "Congratulations. Lift Me Up/Hector! His first big race! Newbury - first time under rules."

Geri shares her successful racehorses with her Formula 1 boss husband, Christian. The couple split their time between their two family homes in Oxfordshire and Hertfordshire alongside their son Monty, five, Geri's daughter Bluebell, 15, and Christian's daughter Olivia, nine.

Aside from horses, the blended family look after an ever-expanding menagerie of animals featuring chickens, miniature donkeys and goats.

Geri married Christian on Friday 15 May 2015, with a ceremony at St Mary's Church in Woburn, before hosting their reception at nearby Woburn Abbey. And in an interview with Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, the star described the occasion as "truly the happiest day" of her life.
