It's cool to see a royal visiting a therapy riding facility. I volunteer at one every week, and it's amazing to see the improvements people can make from week to week.

It seems their all enjoying their time and helping out others. Aimee looks so elegent and pretty.

I saw Laurentien on the television news, it looked very weird. In the middle were all the photographers, camera men etc, and the horses were walking around them, with Laurentien walking next to them or in front and impersonating an aeroplane.

The girl on the horse must have felt pretty special though... :)

the photos are great, it's wonderful that the dutch royals do this.

laurentien and marilene looked so at ease and happy. i never realised what a cute couple marilene and maurits do, i think it's easier to see it in this kind of relaxed situations. the photos of annette with the girl in the water are also precious. and what can i say about aimee? she is and looks gorgeous, as always... :) hope we get more pictures of her soon.

the dutch princesses are all so perfect. they always look lovely and behave so correctly... beatrix and magriet must feel so proud!

Thanks Linda, great pictures! The open cardoor (upwards), was that the car of Bernhard and Annette? It looks very flashy.

I wonder if Annette received the boots as a welcoming gift to the family ;) The house of Orange was renowed for their use of bicycles and boots...
