Queen Elizabeth II - horsewoman extraordinaire


Salve,
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 - :)

''A ruling party MP in Russia has sought to have the new Disney musical Beauty and the Beast banned for peddling “gay propaganda”.''

I don't understand the comments attached to the post- what's going on?
Coming back to the Elizabeth- she rode without helmet but hmmm she didn't look as a lady- lady should wear a hut or cap- never such scarf like peasant women hundred years ago.
And nowadays some "traditional" Catholic have a lot against "Kopftuchen" (called it from German), what makes me furious- at least even queen Elizabeth wore such head cover.
