The Queen of England may be 92, but she's showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Earlier this week, the British monarch was photographed horseback riding in Windsor.

For the occasion, Her Majesty wore a navy blue coat and a printed, cream-colored scarf in lieu of a helmet. In the past, the Telegraph has reported that she always declines to wear a "hard hat" so as to not mess up her hair.

The Queen has long been an avid equestrian, taking her first lessons at just three years old, but as she's gotten older, she's grown a bit more particular about when she will ride. A few years ago, the Queen was filmed telling her aide, "I'm rather a fair-weather rider now. I don't like getting cold and wet."

On Tuesday, she was accompanied by head groom Terry Pendry, who looked dapper in a bowler hat and riding jacket.

But the Queen and Pendry weren't the only ones dressed for the occasion. Elizabeth II's horse also appears to be sporting a cluster of posies up by its ear, a symbol honoring fallen troops, and nodding to the upcoming 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.

Later this week, the Queen will attend the national service of remembrance, where Prince Charles will lay a wreath on her behalf. At this point, it's unclear if the Duke of Edinburgh will attend the Sunday event, as he has retired from public life, but he was also out and about this week.

Prince Philip was spotted carriage driving, one of his favorite pastimes, on the Windsor grounds on Tuesday.
