Queen, 92, and son Prince Edward take horseback ride through Windsor Castle

The Queen has been making the most of the pleasant weather which has swept the country this weekend, as she embarked on a horse ride with son Prince Edward.

The 92-year-old is the sixth-longest-reigning monarch of all time and doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon, as she is seen trotting through Windsor on Saturday afternoon.

The Queen made the most of the glorious Autumn weather and wore a navy anorak and a light blue headscarf. She looked comfortable as she rode around the grounds of Windsor on a black horse next to a royal aide.

This is while Prince Edward seemed to be in full riding gear and was wearing a red and black riding hat.

While the Queen seemed to trot around at a glacial pace, Prince Edward was galloping around the grounds at speed.

The Queen has previous been spotted riding a horse on her estate at Balmoral in September and other family members had previously commented on her ability to keep going.

Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall had previously said it was ‘incredible’ that the Queen was still horse-riding, as a part as a documentary she was taking part in called ‘The Queen at 90’.

Earlier this year, while the nation was patiently waiting for Kate Middleton to give birth, the Queen occupied herself by going for a ride around Windsor.

Her Majesty was spotted taking a turn around the grounds on her beloved black Fell pony, Carltonlima Emma while she awaited news from the Lindo Wing. 

Despite her love of riding, the Queen also enjoys racing the horses and is a keen racehorse owner, and a successful one at that. 

In 2017 the British monarch had racked up almost £7 million in prize money over the past 40 years with over 451 wins to her name, according to myracing.com.

Even though the Queen probably has a handful of people who can attend to this, it has previously been reported that she is a very hands on owner and that she reads the Racing Post everyday.

The monarch’s lifelong enthusiasm for all things equine is said to have started when she was just three years old, when she had her first riding lesson. 

She has been a devoted horse rider ever since, and has a keen interest in horse breeding. 

According to Harpers Bazaar every July, she is said to visit the Royal Stud at Sandringham in Norfolk, where her horses are foaled.
