We love seeing how proud Victoria and David Beckham are of their four beautiful children, but many of her Instagram followers were shocked when Victoria, 43, posted this controversial photo of her six-year-old daughter Harper riding her horse. 

The image shows Harper sat on Prince, the horse, who has a crown design on its rear. Animal rights campaigners were quick to comment and criticise Victoria who believed that this was branding rather than shaven onto the horse, causing the horse pain.

She captioned the photo Riding in the sunshine ☀️ kisses from Harper and her prince 🐎 x #mummytime x and whilst many were outraged by the image, a lot of the Spice Girl singers fans were quick to jump to her defence, praising Victoria for getting her daughter outside doing activities, rather than being inside on a computer or tablet.

There were also horse riders and equestrian experts who pointed out that it was shaving and not branding on the horse with followers claiming: 'Lol omg It’s a haircut people, this is not Branded' and 'How do you fools seriously think that's a brand..' Victoria hasn't replied to the comments on the photo and not made clear whether the crown is a branding or shaved.
