I read, or rather gaze at the articles and photos on The Daily Mail site, and today I saw this picture (@ Kelvin Bruce)
Amazing fit for her advanced age and still able to ride her Fell Pony, this handsome lady is a horsewoman extraordinaire.
I mean I have books about horses and riders, with Her Majesty Queen's photos in there, and I have visited some royal castles in the UK, seen monuments, films and photos, read articles and so on about Her Majesty's love for horses and horseback riding - there is a Wikipedia entry about her horses. Many photos here.

At 91, birthday being next month, Queen Elizabeth II astride her mount is a view to behold - ergo, long live the Queen!
Do note, Her Majesty Queen has no helmet - :)
