Katie Price takes son Harvey to stables to visit his favourite horse after heartbreaking decision for him to move away

KATIE Price has treated her son Harvey with a visit to the stables to see his favourite horse.

It comes after the star's heartbreaking decision to move the disabled teen into full time residential college.

But it was all smiles as Harvey, 18, spent some time in the stables with their horse Wallis, collecting footage of the visit on his iPad.

Katie, 42, captioned the sweet video: "Harvs loves Wallis".

Harvey says in the clip: "Come on Wallis! You look beautiful Wallis," before telling the horse goodnight.

Katie, an avid horserider, can be seen wearing a pink puffer jacket in the video which she's paired with a riding helmet.

The mom-of-five recently made the heart-wrenching decision to put Harvey into care.

The teenager will live in a residential college in a move to teach him how to have a more independent life and learn new skills.

Katie, 42, told The Sun: “It breaks my heart. I don’t want him to think I’m just getting rid of him.”

The TV star has raised disabled Harvey mostly as a single mother.

Admitting it is too painful to think about breaking their incredible bond, Katie said the move gives him the best chance to forge an independent life.

The pair have spent six months visiting colleges for children with autism and learning disabilities. They hope Harvey can start at their top choice later this year.

Mum-of-five Katie said: “It’s so upsetting to think I won’t see him every day but this is the best thing for Harvey and we have to think positively because I don’t want him to think I’m just getting rid of him.

“This is his chance to live an independent life, learn skills and socialise with people other than me.

“I’m trying to get him used to me not being there all the time. But he’ll call on his iPad and say, ‘Mum, I need you’, and I run to him.

“When he’s three hours away it will break my heart because I won’t be able to get there as I’ve got to juggle him with my other kids.

“When he goes to college he will learn to be an adult. He says now, ‘Mummy, I’m not a boy, I’m a man.’

“The other kids are excited for him — they want to see what he can do. But I think they’ll find it hard when he’s not around on weekends.

“I need to learn to let go but it’s tough — anyone in my position knows how hard it is.

“We have an incredible bond. I don’t know how Harvey will react or how he’ll feel when I can’t get to him. It’s too painful to think about.”
