Princess Charlotte loves horse riding

Princess Charlotte is quite young but she already shows her interest in horse riding. The little royal has apparently been embracing horse riding since she was only 18 months old. The famous British rider, Natasha Baker, shared that she found out about this from Kate Middleton. Even though Catherine doesn’t really share her daughter's love for horses, she decided to encourage Charlotte.

Charlotte's great-grandmother also loves horses. Queen Elizabeth became famous for her horseback journeys. She began riding at the age of four. She 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.
