OLYMPIC medallist Sharon Hunt rode up to Chilton Community Primary School in Stowmarket to teach pupils about determination and self belief.
The Bury born event rider took with her Jasper – otherwise known as Tankers Town – which she rode to Olympic bronze in Beijing in 2008.
Sharon said: “We thought it would be a nice idea to come and see the kids as it is an Olympic year – they were very excited to see Jasper and my medal.
“My favourite question the children asked all day was could he jump the school.”
Headteacher Liz Bennett said: “What we are doing is looking at courage and determination this term and what it is like to be an Olympian. It was a way of bringing the stories behind the Olympics to life.”
