It is well known that the Queen loved horseback riding from a young age.
Until recently, she still went horseback riding regularly – and enjoyed spending time with her horses in the fresh air.
And it now appears that her great-granddaughter Princess Charlotte is following in her footsteps by reportedly also taking up the hobby alongside her brothers Prince George and Prince Louis.
The three are said to have become “zealous riders” and are all trotting around on their very first ponies.
They are believed to have started honing their driving skills at their Norfolk home, Amner Hall, during lockdown last year.
Father Prince William is said to have been “thrilled” for his children to take up the hobby after learning to ride a horse as a child.
The Queen has been known for her love of horses since she first took a horseback riding lesson at the age of three.
She had previously selected eight special horses that she and her family have enjoyed riding and watching, as well as five of the most memorable racehorses of all time that she has bred and owned.

Her choices included tributes to her late father George VI with an aureole she inherited from the King and the moment her daughter Princess Anne won the European Eventing Championships on Doublet – a horse bred by Her Majesty.
The Head of State also chose the racehorse Estimate, which triumphed in the Ascot Gold Cup, making her the first monarch to win the trophy.
In October last year it was reported that the Queen was ordered to give up horseback riding for at least six months after falling ill.
A royal source said at the time: “The Queen is sad not to be able to get on her horse, which is one of her favorite pastimes, but she is resting and taking all precautions to regain full fitness.
“However, she is very determined to get back riding as soon as possible and in no way does she feel that her riding days are behind her.”
It is unclear if she has ridden since.
