Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School Horncastle

On Friday 3rd February I had an extremely exciting day. I met and presented a demonstration to Princesses Anne, the Queen’s daughter. She is very knowledgeable and has competed at the Olympics (eventing discipline) so she knew what she was talking about.  

My friend Evie and I are both members of Lincolnshire Wolds Riding for the Disabled group. We were picked to be part of the demonstration because we are both RDA national show jumping champions! Our routine was based around Ricky (my horse) and Breeze (Evie’s horse) liking each other so it was good that they did. There were lots of times when we crossed over and jumped jumps at the same time.

When we had finished riding, we all got to meet Princess Anne. She was very bubbly and chatty. She liked my pony, Ricky, a lot and thought our demonstration was amazing too.

It was a really memorable day and I loved every moment of it!
