Do you mean the YouTube videos I posted? Maybe they are blocked in the US, but that sounds strange.

Update: I overlooked Skippyboo's post and as she says, they works for her in the US.

The Queen's horses and Ant and Dec for 90th birthday celebrations in Windsor | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
Her smile said it all last night. The Queen must have seen more horseflesh than almost anyone alive yet even she can seldom have seen a line-up like the cast of yesterday’s equestrian spectacular in honour of her 90th birthday.

More than 900 horses had been assembled in Windsor Home Park for this musical tableau of the monarch’s life in front of the entire Royal Family, more than 7,000 spectators and a live ITV audience.

The most experienced old hands from the horse show world – and there were plenty in this crowd – were struggling to think of the last time this many horses had turned out on parade in honour of the Queen.

If the Queen has been the constant thread running through the life of this nation for as long as most people can remember, then horses have been the constant thread running through hers.

She arrived in a carriage, alongside the Duke of Edinburgh and escorted by the Household Cavalry. There to greet her was the evening’s official host, the Prince of Wales, while the younger generations watched from a packed Royal Box.

Then it was over to the evening’s other hosts, ITV’s Ant & Dec and a show which veered from high pageantry to 21st century carnival. As the military bands marched off one moment, Gary Barlow struck up next and a squadron of red, white and blue racing cars shot in to the arena.

Downton Abbey’s Jim Carter – Carson as was – took us through the Queen’s childhood. Starting with a boisterous contingent from the Pony Club, the music and displays followed the full span of her life, culminating in a magnificent presentation of all the Queen’s horses – from her show ponies and polo ponies to her racehorses, the Household Cavalry and even the Duke of Edinburgh’s carriage driving team.

Her birthday celebrations conclude next month with a Service of Thanksgiving, Trooping the Colour and a giant street party in London.

Before that, however, she – and her Household Cavalry – are back on parade again this week. Much as she will no doubt be looking forward to another State Opening of Parliament, I suspect last night’s events will remain etched in the royal mind for rather longer.

Queen's 90th birthday party sees royals gather for celebration | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
Members of the royal family came out in force to honour the Queen at a special gala to mark her 90th birthday with a colourful display of military pomp and animals galore at Windsor Castle.

Her Majesty arrived at the event in a horse-drawn carriage, wearing a a sea green dress with lace overlay, and matching jacket by Angela Kelly, accompanied by her husband the Duke of Edinburgh, .

The extravaganza featured 900 horses, a host of songs and dancing with Princess Anne, Prince Edward, Zara Tindall and Lady Louise Mountbatten taking part in the parade of horses.

I just realized that the horse Zara is riding for the celebration is her beloved Toytown. It must have been so special for her to have him in the celebration of her grandmother.

I love Toytown. I'm still sad that he missed both the 2004 and 2008 olympics due to injury. He's the perfect horse for this type of show because Zara always said he loved crowds.

I also noticed that Louise had a Diamond Jubilee Medal on.

I liked that Louise was allowed to ride the Queen's pony Emma. :)

Camilla looked absolutely fabulous in combination with those amazing pearls. I am amazed the King of Bahrain, whom brutally opposed internal opposition à la methode Assad, is such a honoured guest.... Kudos for the Queen and the Duke to endure both the temperatures as well the show...

Interesting to read that the State Landau had a Keppel history. When Charles and Camilla visits the Netherlands, it would be nice to include a visit to Keppel Castle or Voorst House in their program. Camilla's Keppel ancestors were Earls of Albemarle, Viscounts of Bury and Barons Ashford in the UK and were Lords of Keppel, of Voorst and of Acquoy in the Netherlands. Acquoy Castle was blown up in 1672 in order of King Louis XIV in revenge on King William III.

Edward, Louise and Ann are all riding in a double bridle too, great to see that! (the horse people will understand).

Were the handsome young men seated beside Lady Sarah both her sons? One of them resembles his grandmother (Princess Margaret).

I get the impression from the formal way the guests in the royal box are dressed that the Queen has hosted a dinner at the Castle before the pagent.
