Owner Sue Boyce, 62, told the Middy: “A member of my staff, Jamie Short, said everywhere you go there is England flags and we should do it.

“And we thought it might be a bit of fun and put a picture up on Facebook. We have had a lot of views and shares.

“I feel very proud, the ponies love having any sort of attention.”

Mrs Boyce said she was ‘excited’ for tonight’s big match. “I am so excited about tonight, I know they are going to win,” she said.

“They are a brilliant bunch. I am very proud to be English at the moment. There is no question about it, they are going to win!”

Three Greys Riding School is situated on the South Downs in Rockrose Farm, Clayton Hill.

Mrs Boyce runs the business with her daughter Ashley Boyce, 37.
