Princess Anne is a lifelong equestrian who rode for Team Great Britain at the Olympics in 1976, and showed off her skills when her horse got spooked in the streets of London during the Trooping the Colour parade on June 15. In April 2023, her daughter Zara Tindall told PEOPLE that horses are constantly a topic of conversation between them.

“Our horses are in our family, so there’s always discussions about performances and things like that. There’s horses in her life and she does a bit of breeding as well. So there’s always horse conversation going on,” Zara told PEOPLE at the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event presented by MARS Equestrian.
