Queen Elizabeth II Rides A Horse At Age 90
Riding horses is a favorite hobby to Queen Elizabeth and after her knee problem and of course her age, everybody expected that she no longer will take her everyday horse rides. Turning 90ty doesn’t stopped her from doing what she loves to do.
Last week she was seen riding her favorite pony at Windsor. From the photograph that has been taken we can notice the remarkably sprightly Queen with her trademark headscarf, because as she once said, she doesn’t want to wear protective headgear because it will mess up her hairstyle.
It took her a long time to take this ride, because as we can remember, her last ride was in November. The Queen rode through Windsor Great Park accompanied by Terry Pendry, her long serving groom. She looked happy while she rode her faithful Carltonlima Emma.
In the documentary that was filmed, she stated that she doesn’t want to ride in the rain and that clearly she is a fair-weather rider, who now doesn’t like the cold. The Duchess of Cornwall admires her mother in law, because as she says, no one else is riding a horse at the age of 90.
But, royal watchers noticed that she doesn’t ride as much as she did in the past. Although she rides regularly, she stays in Windsor’s private places, we believe that she wants to spend a quit time and be discrete. In the past she used to go out for at least an hour, but nowadays, she rides for a short 15 minute.
An information came out in the Sunday Express last week, it was about the Queen and her need of knee surgery. But, the thing is that she refused such a knee replacement, because she would not be able for six weeks to do any royal engagements.
Earlier this month she was noticed avoiding the steps at the sovereign’s entrance to the Palace of Westminister and taking the lift. Obviously, she has a serious problem with the knee, although her health is in a great condition.
