Trooping the Color: Horse spotted without rider in parade

A lone horse wandering around during Trooping the Color was spotted by royal fans earlier today.

The beast was spotted without its rider during the platinum grand anniversary celebrations.

Several people commented on the loose horse, although it’s unclear when its rider jumped off.

One fan said: “Did I see a loose horse somewhere on the parade ground?”

Another added: “Sooo fabulous a horse trotting by without its rider. I love live theatre!”

Another replied: “I wonder what happened to the rider of the riderless horse?

“I hope he’s fine. Did someone catch the horse too?”

The footage also showed a horse falling to the ground during today’s Trooping the Color parade.

The animal, which is mostly out of camera shot, appeared to fall over before quickly getting up again.

Animal Welfare Watch later tweeted an email from the British Army’s budget department, which said “horse and rider are doing well”.

The campaign group captioned the post: “Confirmation that horse is fine after falling/collapsing at Queen’s Jubilee Trooping of the Colors parade.”

It is now known that the horse lost its rider

The Guardsmen and officers later passed the head of state and the monarch watched them parade as thousands lined the Mall after witnessing the pomp and pageantry of the ceremony attended by the royal family.

Ahead of the event, protesters wearing crowns were arrested after running from marching soldiers as the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee military parade began.

Animal Rebellion protesters were seen on TV cameras breaching security fences at Trooping the Color before being quickly dragged to the ground by police officers.

The Mall leading to Buckingham Palace was packed with thousands of people draped in Union flags to celebrate the Queen’s incredible 70 years on the throne.

Among them were the protesters, who suddenly rushed through the security gate and lay down in front of the approaching brass band.

A Met Police spokesman said of the incident: “A number of people have been arrested attempting to enter the ceremonial route at The Mall around 10.10am today.”

Around 1,500 soldiers and officers take part in the colorful Trooping the Color military parade, held annually to celebrate the Queen’s official birthday.

The Queen participated in the parade herself on horseback until 1986 – five years after a man fired six blank shots at her as she rode past, managing to control her startled horse.
