The Queen was in attendance for the opening day of the Royal Windsor Horse Show to see one of her young horses, Tower Bridge, compete in the event on Wednesday.
Her Majesty attended the show on Wednesday to watch the equestrian events and browsing stalls that cover the site in the glorious weather.
Her passion for horses began in her early childhood and the monarch is a keen breeder of thoroughbreds which she races. She around 25 animals and often buys horses from Kentucky to maintain lineage.
The Queen arrived to see one of her young horses, four-year old Tower Bridge, compete in the Novice Heavyweight Hunter class. Her horse finished second and qualified for the Novice Hunter Championships.
While the monarch is usually dressed in designer clothes and large hats for days out at the races such as Ascot and the Epsom Derby, the Queen decided to go casual for her day out. Her Majesty’s choice of attire was a yellow cardigan and tweed skirt, which was wrapped over with a with a navy jacket.
