Forget man’s best friend – this cute Springer Spaniel has become best mates with a HORSE.

Adorable spaniel Zak and Rocky the pony have been inseparable since they met two years ago.

And the pair are so close that Rocky even lets Zak ride around on his back – and the paid snuggle up to groom each other in Rocky’s stable.

Zak will even hop on board 28-year-old Rocky for a ride when owner Laura Halstead, 33, is exercising the 12.2hh pony – hanging on behind Laura.

And they’ve even won awads for the tricks the pair perform together at horse shows – before both returing to the stables for a snuggle down together.
