How long has the Queen ridden horses?

The Queen has been riding since the age of 4.

And it is said to be one of her greatest passions in life.

Along with her fondness for Corgis, she’s always had multiple horses.

An avid race goer, she’s owned various race horses along the years.

In fact, she’s even turned a tidy profit from breeding race horses.

She began entering her horses professionally into races from 1988.

And according to CNN she’s earned a staggering £5.8 million from her side hustle.

In last year’s Horse and Hound magazine, the Queen shared her favourite horses to date.

This included her now elderly fell pony called Emma.

The publication explained: “She has been a wonderful servant to Her Majesty and is still going strong at the age of 24 as one of the Queen’s riding ponies.”

Her passion for horses is of course shared across the family.

Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince Harry are all talented polo players.

And both Princess Anne and her daughter, Zara Tindall, have competed professionally.
