New Photo Shows Queen Elizabeth Horseback Riding Like a Boss at 90
Proving once again that age is just a number to the longest-reigning British monarch in history.

Despite having only recovered from a heavy winter cold, Queen Elizabeth II shows no signs of slowing down. The soon-to-be 91-year-old monarch was spotted horseback riding near the bank of the River Thames at Windsor Castle on Monday.

For the occasion, Her Majesty wore a navy blue coat, what appears to be white pants, brown shoes, and a cream-colored headscarf in lieu of a helmet. The Telegraph reports that she always declines to wear a "hard hat" so as to not muss her hair.

Her companion, head groom Terry Pendry, also looked quite dapper for the occasion in a bowler hat and riding jacket complete with pocket square.

The Queen is a lifelong horse lover. She reportedly took her first riding lesson at just three years old, and she hasn't stopped since. In fact, one of the most iconic photos of Ronald Reagan's presidency was him riding alongside her majesty.


Last year, the Queen was filmed telling her aide, "I'm rather a fair-weather rider now. I don't like getting cold and wet."

Fair-weather or not, we're with Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, who said, "Who else is riding at 90? That's what's so incredible."
