I believe Princess Mary's husband the Earl of Harewood used to ride behind the his father in law on parade. Earl Mountbatten of Burma (distantly royal I guess) definitely rode in parades.
Also lets not forget Grand Duke Jean of Luxembourg was Colonel of the Irish Guards and rode behind The Queen uniformed during the Trooping of the Colour from 1984 until his abdication.

Lieutenant General James Jeffrey Corfield Bucknall
is the Colonel of the Coldstream Guards so even today HM has reached out beyond members of her family to appoint a Colonel of one of the Household regiments when she could easily have appointed Andrew or Edward to the role.

That's Grand Duke Jean of Luxembourg. To the right of him is the late Grand Duchess Josephine Charlotte.
Here are two pictures of the Grand Duke from 1998 Trooping the Colour: picture 1, picture 2.

The Grand Duke served as Colonel of the Regiment of the Irish Guards and often rode, in full uniform (including his Garter Star), behind Queen Elizabeth during the Trooping the Colour Parade, and joined the Royal Family on the balcony.

It's going to be great to see Charles ride horseback in the parade once he's King. He looks very Kingly in this review. Very nice pictures.

Interesting article in the Sunday Times regarding next weeks Trooping the Colour.

Summary

THE Duke of Kent is expected to replace the Duke of Edinburgh at the Queen’s side during the trooping the colour parade on Saturday.

The Queen’s cousin will stand in for Prince Philip, who will remain in hospital for two weeks as he recovers from exploratory surgery on his abdomen.

Plans are in place for the Duke of Kent, a colonel with the Scots Guards and personal aide-de-camp to the Queen, to travel in the carriage with the monarch during her birthday parade and to stand in for Philip as chairman of the Senior Colonel’s Conference on Friday.

The article goes on about the need for the Prince to "slow down" and that the Queen is spending the w/end at Windsor. Gun salute on Monday for DoE's birthday.

I love that The Duke of Kent is going to be with his cousin, what a lovely gesture.

That is very nice of The Duke of Kent. I thought she was going to ride in the parade alone.

It's better that he will ride in the carriage with The Queen. I guess from now on, he will ride in one of the carriages from the Parade.

Not necessarily, if he gets the all. Clear from the doctors.

There is no carriage procession to the TTC, the queen alone rides in her small carriage and is accompanied by the colonels of the regiments. Is possible that next year, if the situation with DoK is the same, then all 3 can ride in a larger carriage.

There is a carriage procession, I think, afterwards going back to BP. I that right??

I was just guessing that the Duke of Kent would ride in one of the carriages from now on. It's said that The Duke of Kent will ride with The Queen tomorrow-

Dickie Arbiter ‏@RoyalDickie 5h
Given The Duke of Kent suffered a stroke a while back it's a good move to have him accompany The Queen to Trooping tomorrow

Paul Harrison ‏@SkyNewsRoyal 6h
#royal Duke of Kent will accompany #Queen at Trooping the Colour tomorrow in his capacity as Col-in-chief of the Scots Guards #Philip

Correction: The Duke of Kent is Colonel of The Scots Guards.
