A Few of My Favourite Things; FORMER Model and Strictly Contestant Jodie Kidd, 33, Had Her First Baby, Indio, with Her Argentine Polo Player Boyfriend Andrea Vianini, 40 in September. They Split Their Time between England and Uruguay

NEW LOVE

I'VE become completely hooked on carriage driving. My grandmother was a world champion at driving pairs, so it's in the family.

It is an extraordinary sport. I had no idea how incredibly technical it is -- driving four horses at a flat-out gallop through obstacles is amazing.

I was really hoping that I would slow down a bit after becoming a mum, but as soon as I got on the back of that carriage, I was like, 'Woo-hoo!'.

SPEED MACHINES

THE Maserati GranTurismo S (pictured, far right) is one of the most beautiful cars ever designed. It's enjoyable to quick, safe and just lovely. I'm very lucky to have a black one which is very stylish.

Plus I have a Land Rover 90 from the Eighties, which is a proper country wagon. It has a tow bar so I'll put the horsebox on the back or use it get the hay, for fixing fencing or anything like that.

I also have a Ferrari 550, but I hardly ever drive her because she's like Grandma; she's treated very specially.

GREENS

I'VE played golf at a lot of different courses and, although St Andrews in Scotland and Goodwood in south England are amazing, Doonbeg in Ireland is unbelievable.

It's right on the coast in Co.

Clare and is designed by Greg Norman so it's really tough but beautiful. I've only been once.

RURAL VIEW

MY FAVOURITE view is from my bedroom window. I can see my garden, as well as the paddock where we've just had two foals. We've called them Phantom and Spooky.

There's something very relaxing and calming about that view. I live near the South Downs, in the very south of England, and it's stunning.

BOOT CAMP

MOST people would probably think I'd say I like a Jimmy Choo shoe or a pair of Manolo Blahniks, but what do I wear at home? Timberland boots.

They've got some cool, funky designs and I love the waterproof boots (pictured, far left) that are great for walking in the country. They're comfy and durable and perfect for wearing with the horses.

PARADISE ISLAND

BARBADOS (pictured, left) is one of the most beautiful islands in the world. I have a special fondness for it because we spent our summer holidays there as children.

My family still live there, including my nieces and nephews, so it is our family home, which is lovely.

We're about to take Indio on his first trip to meet his Grandma and it's going to be exciting. …
