Saying that, the Western style of riding still doesn't catch on in England, it's to do with a fear of releasing the contact on the bit - too much Pony Club instilled in everyone.
Not at all, many 'pony clubbers' ride with Hackamores and not everyone was or is a pony club member. I have to point out, that no Western style riders seem to enter the 3 day events!

Different people have their preferences, but most of the riding world use the same riding style as the UK.
It's a little like the difference between riding a BM and a Harley, if you love one, you probably won't like the other!

I'm amused by her security guard (in photo Anne 3). He's not sure if he likes the new business suit look or not.

Like me he probably does but, like me, is a bit unsure about the biker gloves and trouser flare.

She looks so cute in "Anne 3"! Those shoes with that suit are adorable. It's a typical choice for Anne: comfort over fashion!

I don't think he is a security guard, they don't normally wear a badge giving their name or position.

The Princess Royal got back home from Italy in time to hand out prizes at the Gatecombe trails.

www.eventriders.com the best and most popular internet magazine dedicated to eventing.

(scroll down to the bottom)


This horseandhound thread leads with a competitor's pictorial report. It takes time to fully download and I had to tweek some of the photos to make them open. (right click and save to 'favourites' and then open them from there)

Beautiful glimpses of Gatecombe Park.

Thanks for the wonderful post, Iceflower! It looks to me like the pictures reflect her desire to be there and complete the job at hand as a professional. That's what I like about her. She takes care of business and puts effort, as well as care, into her duties as a member of the royal family.
