    A horse trainer has been cleared of punching his girlfriend in the face after she had allegedly hit him with a frying pan.

    Michael Jackson, 41, was accused of hitting Rosie Bell 'four to five times' and stamping on her thigh and foot during a furious breakup row at his Cotswold stables on January 24, 2020.

    Prosecutors alleged that Mr Jackson had told Miss Bell to move all her belongings from his home in Sezincote within two days.

    Jurors heard that she then drove to the yard and argued with him while he led a young stallion out of the stables.

    Giving evidence at Gloucester Crown Court, Miss Bell denied that injury to her toe could have been caused by the horse. 

    But Mr Jackson denied assaulting her, saying she had approached him while screaming before grabbing his jumper and ripping it.

    The horse rider told the court that he lost his grip on the stallion's neck rope and the horse had bolted – causing him to put out his hand to steady himself and connecting with Miss Bell's chest.

    Mr Jackson also alleged that his girlfriend had hit him in the face with a frying pan during a row in August 2019.

    'I was surrounded by brick walls and lots of metal,' he told the court.

    'The horse starts to accelerate in one direction as I tried to detain him and with my other hand battle with Rosie who was attacking me.

    'She screamed in my face and ripped my jumper which made the horse bolt forward. This escalated the situation and instinctively I put out my left hand to stop me falling, but as I did so I connected with Rosie's chest.

    'During this commotion we both lost our balance and I fell on top of her and I felt the rope ripping through my hands, causing me to suffer from rope burn.
