An internationally-respected dressage trainer who worked with Olympic gold medal riders has been jailed for possessing bestiality pornography - involving horses.
Liam Fisher, 37, also had child abuse images and asked for an online sex show involving an eight year-old boy.
The vile material was discovered when police arrested a man named Matthew Armsworth on the Isle of Wight and examined his computer.
He was found to have a link with Fisher and after officers searched his Cotswolds home he confessed his dark secret and told them: 'My life is now over.'
Brendon Moorhouse, prosecuting, said Fisher's hoard included 219 extreme pornographic images, mostly of men and women having sex with horses and dogs.
Police also found 182 indecent photos and films, mostly of boys aged from infants to 16-years-old.
Of those 97 were deemed to be in the most serious harm category, 58 in the mid and 27 in the least harm category.
In addition, Fisher had file transferred 237 indecent images via Skype.
It was also discovered that he had conversed with Armsworth and, believing he had an eight-year-old brother, encouraged him to commit sexual offences online with the boy.
Bristol Crown Court was told it transpired no such little brother existed.
Fisher was based at Norton Grounds Farm in Chipping Camden, Gloucestershire, where he worked alongside Italian Olympic dressage rider Vittoria Panizzon.
The court heard he had previously trained Olympic gold medallists in dressage and taught successful competitors at Badminton and Burghley equestrian events.
But he hung his head as defence barrister David Maunder said he was now 'crippled with shame and embarrassment'.
Smartly-dressed Fisher, now of Bow, London, was jailed for two years, five months after pleading guilty to all charges.
Mr. Maunder told the court: 'Mr Fisher is an intelligent man, a sensitive man. For that reason he is crippled with embarrassment and shame at the position that he finds himself in.
'He makes no attempt whatsoever to excuse his behaviour. He can do no more than to ask to explain it.
'He doesn't wish, through me, to ask to justify what took place which was entirely unacceptable.'
Mr Maunder said Fisher had ridden horses since his late teens, following his mother's death.
He turned what started as a hobby into a career, developed it and became successful.
Mr Maunder added: 'From 25 he was training horses successfully. He has assisted Olympic gold medallists in dressage.
'He has tutored successful competitors at Badminton and Burghley. That looked like his life-time career and one which brought him success.'
Mr Maunder said his downfall was the result of a relationship split which had a 'catastrophic effect' on his client's life and emotional condition.
It led to a downward spiral involving the loss of his career, home and emotional and sexual instability.
Fisher turned to the internet, downloading images and making sexual requests involving a child who didn't actually exist.
The court heard since being caught Fisher had re-invented himself, completing a probationary period as an estate agent in London with 'flying colours' and doing bar work at night.
Mr Maunder said: 'He obviously understands that there will be punishment in this case and it will be severe punishment.
'He has taken just about every positive step that he could have done to try and seek help.
'He has expressed to the probation officer his absolute determination to engage with such assistance and direction as the probation service would be able to offer him.'
Judge Michael Cullum told Fisher: 'The reality is that you are responsible for the rape of children, very young children, children from infants to babies.
'That's the responsibility you bear by fuelling a market where real children have been witnessed by you having their lives ruined.'
Fisher was handed a sexual harm prevention order, banning him from unsupervised contact with youngsters, for ten years.
He was ordered to register as a sex offender for ten years and his computer equipment was forfeited for destruction.
Fisher admitted six charges of making an indecent photograph of a child; four charges of distributing an indecent photograph of a child; three charges of possessing indecent images of children; three charges of possessing extreme pornographic images; inciting an offence believing it will be committed.
Na wah oh!!!
