Cult film director Quentin Tarantino has been taking riding lessons from blonde actress Daryl Hannah.

The pair built up a rapport while filming the Kill Bill movies and the horse-loving actress, who has a stable of horses on her ranch in Colorado, offered to take him on a week's riding boot camp in South Africa.

A source says, "Quentin knows nothing about horses but Daryl is confident her will love trekking.

"She's just visited Jaguar cars' nature reserve in Belize, where she rode most days. Now she is looking forward to being an instructor."
