At first, this sounded a little crazy to us. However, we imagine this is something Anne would totally be on board with, considering she began riding at such a young age and horses have played such a major role in her life since. Not only is she the vice president of the British Horse Society (the U.K.’s leading equine charity), she’s also a longtime celebrated equestrian and competed in the 1976 Olympic Games’ three-day equestrian event on her mother’s horse.
The queen’s only daughter, of course, inherited her interest in horseback riding from her mother, Queen Elizabeth, who continues to ride at 94 years old. Princess Anne’s daughter, Zara Tindall, is also an equestrian and took home the silver medal at the 2012 Olympics.
Can we make video chatting with horses a more common thing?
