Princess Charlotte has recently turned three, but she already shows interest in horse riding. The famous British rider, Natasha Baker, shared that she found out about this from Kate Middleton, who previously mentioned her daughter’s new interest. Even though the Duchess doesn’t really share her relatives’ love for horses, she promised to encourage Charlotte.

Queen Elizabeth became famous for her horseback journeys. She started riding at the age of four. The young royal participated in the traditional equestrian parades, held as a part of the official birthday celebrations until 1987. She didn’t take part in any competitions like her younger relatives, however, she attended royal horse courses, and was always happy to ride wherever she was. Moreover, the British court stable was considered one of the best in the country.

The Queen’s only daughter, Princess Anne, is a huge fan of the equestrian sport. She took part in the Olympic Games in 1976, and won silver medals in European competitions twice.

Horse riding isn’t the only sport with which the Duke of Cambridge associates his children. Recently, it was also reported that George and Charlotte made their first steps in tennis (Kate’s favorite activity), as well as soccer.
