HRH Princess Benedikte has been busy with horse events from Sweden to Kentucky. Her daughter came sixth in Kentucky at the dressage event. They certainly got a big crowd of 46,000. But then Kentucky is horse country. Pleased to see she was acknowleged as a Danish princess in the press. The Princess is always busy not only representing Denmark but following her favourite sports with horses. I have enormous respect for this talented and hard working lady. And I think she deserves many kudos for her support for her sister the Queen.

Princess Benedikte as patron of the World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses attended
the European dressage championship 2011 at the Kralingse bos in Rotterdam, August 21,
2011. Queen Beatrix and Princess Amalia attended the event as well.
