I think a helmet makes sense when you're jumping but not necessary for a leisurely trail ride.

I know the schools in the U.S. require them at all times but that is because unless they do, their insurance premiums go up the roof.

She's probably off the Queen's Christmas card list too.

When I was in school, we were told never to brush our hair or apply our make-up in public. We weren't told there was an exception for the Queen of England. (This was our sex ed talk -- during the 1970s.) Smiley face.

It is probably the same here.
When we are out, if we are cantering through the woods and a fallen branch or tree presents itself, we don't worry that we havn't got a helmet on!

Maybe that's where I heard it. I'd thought it was from my mother, but it could have been at one of those "Mother and Daughter" nights in the late '60s, and someone certainly drummed it into me.

I wonder why they dealt with it at a sex ed talk? Does such behaviour signify one is wanton?

It is just a wild guess, but I suspect the Queen may have been surreptitiously checking that she didn't have spinach or something similar in her teeth. I think that for her Majesty, spinach in teeth would be worse than checking makeup at table.

Surely no horse would be impolite enough to dump the Queen.

what i dont like about the excerpt of the book that i read is that she sounds like shes critizing the queen and the queen mother. she sounds rather snobbish. In any case she's the queen of england she can do what she wants plus i suppose this must'nt have been a very formal lunch.

That's nice. Seems like a good idea to have a purpose-built rink and not risk using the lake, considering that winters aren't as cold as they used to be.

Britain's Queen Elizabeth, centre with umbrella, inspects soldiers from the Home Service Battalions of the British Army's Royal Irish Regiment at Balmoral Showgrounds, Belfast, Northern Ireland, Friday, Oct. 6, 2006. The Queen presented a group medal Friday to three British army battalions being disbanded in Northern Ireland, a symbolic milestone in the province's slow transition from war to peace. The queen presented a conspicuous gallantry cross, one of the military's highest honors, to the Royal Irish Regiment during a rain-soaked ceremony in Belfast. (AP Photo/Peter Morrison)

Queen Elizabeth II bids farewell to the Royal Green Jackets in London, 10 October 2006, ahead of a major restructuring of the army. The Queen has a burst blood vessel in her right eye.
