Royal Windsor Horse Show, Friday

Yesterday I attended the Royal Windsor Horse Show.

Yes, I am a horse addict. So it was basically horse heaven for me. There were rows and rows of horsey-related stands selling everything from £690 riding boots and personalized British leather halters. The blue-bird skies promised a sunny and warm day, which was a relief as the Badminton Horse Trials last weekend had horrible winds and rain. The event was held at Windsor Castle, the residence of Her Majesty the Queen, and as you walked onto the grounds you got a spectacular view of the castle from the back.

When I arrived I just caught the end of the show jumping which was so thrilling! I got a great view so it really felt like I was right there on the ground.

Afterwards, I walked around the grounds and took a peak at the shopping stands, as well as the Cob and Hack competitions. I won’t bore you with details but basically  I also saw the Bahrain Pearl Steaks, where I saw Nick Skelton, John Whitaker and Laura Kraut. This was so amazing for me because I remember watching these champions ride when I was 9-10 years old and to see them in action for real life was truly a dream come true!

There was also the Musical Ride of The Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment, which was spectacular and have me goosebumps!
