OLYMPIC silver medal winner Mary King is planning to ride through Sidmouth to thank the community for its support.
Mrs King, 51, won a team silver in the eventing at the London Games.
Plans are afoot for her to ride through the town on her horse Imperial Cavalier on 17 August.
She said: “It’ll be lovely for me to repay Sidmouth for all their support.”
As Sidmouth celebrates FolkWeek, town council chairman, Councillor Stuart Hughes, said Mrs King has “written herself into folklore” with her achievements.
