Family is certainly Zara Tindall’s first love, but coming in at a close second is her most beloved sport, horseback riding. Just two months after giving birth to her second child with husband Mike Tindall, baby Lena, the royal was back in the saddle, competing at Somerfod Park Horse Trials this past weekend.
Aboard her trusty steed, Class Affair, Princess Anne’s daughter didn’t miss a beat, looking relaxed, confident and not at all out of practice during the competition. Given her lifelong dedication to the sport, for which earned a silver medal for Britain at the 2012 Olympics, this comes as no surprise. Even while Zara was on a break from her equestrian career after giving birth in June, she was spotted numerous times around the showing circuit, including the Festival of British Eventing, which is held on her mother Princess Anne's estate.
Her weekend was a busy one, as she also managed to fit in a trip to Balmoral estate with former rugby player Mike. The castle, nestled in the heart of Scotland, is the summer home of the Queen and Prince Philip, both of whom stepped out for a church service with their granddaughter and her hubby on Sunday (Aug. 19). Also visiting the stunning landmark that week were Prince Edward and Sophie Wessex, as well as Princess Beatrice, People reports.
It’s certainly been a joyous year for Zara and Mike, who are already parents to little Mia Tindallbut have been candid about suffering miscarriages on the road to having their second daughter. Finally, their wishes were granted with their sweet newborn, and their four-year-old is likely thrilled to show her the ropes. “[Mia] is very happy to be a big sister, she is happy about that,” Mike shared with HELLO!. “We are lucky that people that have sent Lena a present have also thought about Mia, so she is getting stuff to open as well.”
