Bianca Jagger wishes to set the record straight regarding the iconic photograph of her astride a white horse, in the infamous 70's hang out, Studio 54. When the picture circulated some four or so decades ago, the world instantly fell for the seemingly decadent image and fell for the story that Jagger arrived at the club, with then-husband, Mick Jagger, on horseback. 

Following a recent interview in the Financial Times, Jagger has written an open letter to the newspaper, to settle the story once and for all: 

"I would like to set the record straight. Mick Jagger and I walked into Studio 54," Jagger wrote in a letter to the Financial Times, following the interview with Barry Diller which he asserts that Jagger had, in fact, arrived on the white stead.

"Steve Rubell (Studio 54's co-founder) had apparently seen a picture in a magazine of me riding a white horse in Nicaragua and he thought it would be a clever idea to bring a horse to the club as a birthday surprise for me. It was a beautiful white horse that reminded me of mine, and I made the foolish decision to get on it for a few minutes. The photographed image went around the world, giving rise to the fable – that I arrived at Studio 54 on a white horse."

"No doubt you will agree with me that it is one thing to, on the spur of the moment, get on a horse in a nightclub, but it is quite another to ride in on one," she continued. "I find the insinuation that I would ride a horse into a nightclub offensive. Hopefully this letter will finally put this Studio 54 fable - out to pasture."

Jagger has become more and more involved in environmental causes over recent years so clearing up this 'fable' is of great importance to her.
