The other day in Windsor held its annual
competition masters equestrian dressage and horses participating in the races.
The winner in one of the types of the competition was the horse with the funny name Barber’s Shop, which can be translated as a Hairdresser. But the most
notable in this horse, not even his name, and the fact that his mistress —
Queen Elizabeth II, the celebration of the 90th anniversary of which continues in Britain. Moreover, the prize, which was awarded for the Queen
win your pet, it amused and pleased. Elizabeth solemnly handed …
gift certificate for $ 50, which can be “merchandised” in one of the shops
known in Britain supermarket chain! Queen, as you know, the woman
practical, so the coupon will likely not disappear.

His love of horses, the Queen inherited from her
the mother, who never missed any important events. Between
way, Pets Elizabeth repeatedly won important competitions, including
the famous horse races at Ascot.

The competition in Windsor, which can
attributed to charitable activities, was attended by more than 900
horses. The Queen attends the race every year, but not as official
person, and as a regular guest. So she chooses for these events not
ceremonial clothing. This time, for example, Elizabeth dressed in a modest gray
pleated skirt and quilted vest. On his head she tied a handkerchief, and instead
shoes shod in rubber boots…

However, rubber boots Elizabeth had
choose partly out of necessity. The fact is that for the last week in the UK
fell such a quantity of precipitation that the area of Windsor castle was almost
flooded. The event organizers even worried that he’ll have to cancel.
Fortunately, the rains stopped and competitions took place, while the solemn
the opening had to be postponed for one day — for the first time in 66-year history, they
conduct.
