British royal Sarah Ferguson is planning to conquer Hollywood and the Academy Awards, with a new movie about her very own champion horse.

The charity campaigner and children's author is convinced she's on the way to OLYMPIC gold as the owner of Irish showjumping horse BABU.

The "thumping big, 17-hand stallion" will be jumping for Ireland at the Olympics in Greece in 2004, and Fergie plans to pay tribute to her horse in a new movie.

She says, "We're going to win an Olympic gold and then I'll write the story and then I'll make a movie and win an OSCAR."
