BBC NEWS | UK | Queen's birthday photo released



Tiger Lily is now 6 years old and with another win this week, it could be Zara's horse for the London Olympics.

Smiths Lawn One Day Event
Wow Tiger Lilly is only 6? Thats very young for tis level of eventing. s/he looks like a cross breeding of the piebald drum horses and the warm blood carriage/riding horses the queen owns. That would be really great if it were a homebred horse she akes to the games, but I think Toytown is the #1 game in town!

This is the link to Zara's results for last weekend.

Aston-Le-Walls (3) One Day Event

This is the link to her entries for this weekend.

Brockenhurst Park

I'm very impressed by her dedication and effort. I've never been to England so I have no real insight into distances travelled and the logistics involved.

Due to the disruptions that the weather has caused to this season, I understand that she may feel it necessary to get her horses out for their benefit but I'm a bit concerned for her. With all the training and then the travelling and then the competing and then the travelling home, it does seem to me that this weekend is an exceptionally heavy work load.

14 hours days plus travelling time are the rule rather than the exception during the competition season. At the end of the season the horses have a month or so off in the paddock, and the riders get some down time. Then it's time to start bringing the horses back into fitness.

Zara gets the weekend off. Brockenhurst has been cancelled due to waterlogging.

Brockenhurst Park


This HorseandHound thread says it all.

I think it would have been very tough for her emotionnally to compete there since one of her friends died at this event last year...

Yes, of course. I had forgotten about that. That probably explains why I was feeling anxious for Zara competing at Brockenhurst.

It's always nice to see her mucking in the washing of the horses, but in Pic 3, she shows us too much, however unintentionally of course. One hopes she will wear jeans that hug her waist better or a belt next time, though this won't be as comfortable.

I had not noticed that before you've mentioned it, CasiraghiTrio

And I also liked the pic you've mentioned as to the very funny face she made,
I wonder what she was asked or what she said at that moment..

Here are some great shots from today at the competition, especially as to
the hard job the horse has to fulfill:

Fantastic that she withdrew her newbies from Cleobury. It was just too soon after Burghley.

Cleobury Mortimer One Day Event

I'm so glad that she is focusing on herself and getting plenty of rest before the big one that is coming up soon in Italy.

I'm not sure how the British team is chosen. Here in America they now do trials to determine who is on the team. A few years ago there was a very well off, good rider who got left off the team when it was being subjectively chosen. Her lawsuit led to having the trials. While this is a more fair way of determining the team, the horses are often exhausted.

If Zara does go, I hope the family goes to the Games to support her. She is, after all, the very first second generation Royal to go. IIRC, the whole family came in support of Anne when she was in the Olympics.

As Princess Anne is a member of the IOC I would expect her to go whether or not Zara is in the Olympic team - just as she has done for the last I don't know how many Olympics but I can't remember one for yonks where she hasn't gone.

Mark Philips is also still heavily involved in the sport - I think he is the coach of the US team but that may have changed.

Peter would probably go if he could get the time off work, which I don't anticipate would be a problem but his boss might say no. His wife would probably accompany him.

As for other members of the family, like the Queen and Prince Philip, I doubt that they would go, as it would require too much organisation and security, along with their advancing years meaning that they travel less frequently over longer distances.

Zara's uncles and cousins may attend but I doubt if they would all go because of the security and concerns about China's human rights record and other things.

I'm pretty sure that when PssA was in the olympics QE, DoE, PC, PA, and PE all went, but I think it was Canada. China is obviously a different kettle of fish...but if my granddaughter was going to represent our country in the olympics , I'd be dead before I wasn't there to cheer her on!
