The model and reality star took to Instagram to reveal one of her beloved four-legged friends had escaped from its field and was hit by a vehicle on the A24 in West Sussex.

Katie posted a picture of the smashed-up motor on Instagram, and added the caption: “Last night our friends horses including one of ours escaped from their field and ran onto the Road we are devastated.

“We are extremely upset to find out one of our horses was killed last night being hit by a car and don’t appreciate that someone was circulating pictures of our horse dead in the road and put on Facebook!

“Thank god the driver of this car was very lucky and escaped and wish him well, police were amazing and so was the local community and thank them all !

“Our friends other 4 horses thank god are alive with a couple of them injured and are still being treated by the vet and will be ok ! (sic)”

The 39-year-old star admitted the devastating event had reminded her of a similar incident in 2011 when two stallions ran into the road and smashed into the vehicle she was being driven in by then-boyfriend Leandro Penna in Argentina.

Katie narrowly escaped death at the time, and suffered severe whiplash.

She added in her Instagram post: “We are in shock still and reminds me again of the time in Argentina when I was involved in a horrific car accident when the car I was in killed two horses that died in my arms (sic)”
