Queen Elizabeth is back on her horse.

The royal recently went for a gentle ride on her pony at Windsor Castle, People confirmed. A source told the publication, "At 96, it's amazing that the queen has been on her horse."

Per The Sun, she was likely on Fern, her sturdy 16-year-old Fell pony, and was accompanied by her groom Terry Pendry, who is usually by her side when she is riding.

The monarch has for years been an avid horse rider; however, it was reported in 2021 that she had to stop her favourite pastime due to "discomfort." It has since emerged that she has been experiencing "episodic mobility problems."

After making multiple public appearances for her Platinum Jubilee weekend celebration earlier this month, it was decided that the queen would withdraw from attending the Royal Ascot. Instead multiple members of the royal family represented the monarch over the weekend's festivities, including Prince William and Kate.

However, Her Majesty did attend one of the more memorable events on the royal calendar and one she looks forward to every year, the Royal Windsor Horse Show in May.
