As her birthday approaches, April 21st, how can we forget a great woman who loves horses… .. Queen Elizabeth of England !! A great passion that has accompanied her since childhood: Elizabeth’s first horse was a Shetland pony named Peggy that her father, George VI, gave her when she was four years old. Since then she has never stopped riding. She has a particular love for racing thoroughbreds ….

She has such a great passion that it is not unusual to see her – a 90-year-old woman – still in the saddle near the castle of Balmoral , her country estate in Scotland , where she takes long relaxing walks. Inevitable head scarf which, in her free time, replaces the charming hats of official occasions, customary boots and raincoat.
