Oh ok. Majesty was wrong a few years ago then, they said that Toytown was from Her Majesty's stables.

So that is now the third version of Toytown's arrival. The first I saw was in Hello when they had that page of thumbnails and an accompaning short story. It said he cost 20,000 pounds. This price was confirmed in a Times interview where Zara said she bought him from a girl who needed money to set up in the City in order to get a job.

When he started winning the big shows, houseandhound forum was full of claims that he was a bargain discovery. In trying to find the article from the Times(which I couldn't quickly), I did see another site repeating the line that he was a bargain.

The unsung hero behind the crowning of Zara Phillips as the BBC Sports Personality of the Year used to be riddled with ringworm

The other unsung hero is her father.

In looking up some links for this weekend's event in Germany, I found these two which highlight the contribution the Captain makes to the world of eventing.

Luhmühlen: Deutsche Meisterschaft, Military, Pferdezucht, Reitverein

Welcome to The HorseTV Channel!

and it's not hard to imagine the behide-the-scenes contibution that the Captain will be making to the 2012 London Olympics let alone guiding Zara career moves.

Oh, yes both Princess and Captain Phillips had distinguished eventing careers. Captain Phillips for many years was also the chef d'equipp for the American 3 day team. As we say in horses, Zara was certainly bred for it.

From today's Hunter Humper News:
"Zara Phillips: Looking forward to Aachen. The English Eventing World Champion, Zara Phillips, will be competing at the famous CHIO Aachen (July 3rd-8th) in two weeks time. "The footing and the track are fantastic' said Zara on Tuesday. The 26 year old grand-daughter of the British Queen and daughter of Princess Anne will be captain of the English team. "I am extremely excited about returning to Aachen. It is simply brilliant that eventing is now being integrated into the famous CHIO, it is a dream come true for us competitors" She commented further that she had wonderful memories of Aachen and is thus particularly excited about the event.

"Zara will be accompanied by her top horse Toy Town," according to the Show Director Frank Kemperman. Zaa Phillips won the World Championship gold medal at the Aachen Soers with Toy Town on August 27, 2006. In spite of strong German competition, the World Champion is favorite to take gold in the eventing. The fact that she is participating is seen as further proof of the good conditions and attractiveness of the cross-country course in Aachen. "Both the footing and the track were fantastic at the FEI World Equestrian Games, of course that is one of the main reasons why I am now riding at the CHIO," explained Phillips.

Zara Phillips is considered to be the Queen's favorite grand-child. She doesn't spend her life socialising with aristocrats, but instead at equestrian show grounds all over the world. The trained equine physiotherapist is the second child of Princess Anne and Mark Phillips, who were successful themselves at numerable international championships. In 2005, she became double European Champion and after going on to win the World Championship's title in 2006, she was awarded witht the "Member of the Order of the British Empire' for her services to the equestrian sport.

The eventing competitions at the CHIO Aachen begin on Friday morning, July 5th with the dressage, followed by the jumping competition in the afternoon of the same day. The spectacular highlight, the cross-country course starts 9:30 am Saturday. Tickets are available online or from the ticket hotline +49(0)-241-917-1111

Crown lo-goes to Zara Phillips

Pretty Zara Phillips seemed to be in the right spot at Wimbledon yesterday — with a crown on her head.
But the Queen’s 26-year-old grand-daughter was really standing in front of an advertising logo.
Meanwhile, world equestrian champion Zara’s outfit attracted a few comments — and many of them were not complimentary.
