Thursday Video: All the Queen’s Horses

Much of the UK is in mourning tonight after the announcement of the death of Queen Elizabeth II, who passed away this afternoon at Balmoral at the age of 96.

The Queen was a lifelong horsewoman, and owned horses across the disciplines — as well as her own riding ponies, who she was seen riding just days ago. On her diamond jubilee ten years ago, she was honoured with an extraordinary equestrian display — and on the sad occasion of her death, we want to revisit it in all its glory. A fitting send-off for a woman who would probably have liked to have spent her whole life in the stables, much as any of us would.
