The Queen’s granddaughter, Zara Tindall, has been assisted by event officials after falling from a horse during a showjumping competition over the weekend.
The tumble took place at the Burghley Horse Trials in the English midlands with Zara’s mother Princess Anne, husband Mike Tindall and daughters Mia, five, and one-year-old Lena watching on.
Taking a tumble
As she galloped through complex five-star event, the 38-year-old competed against riders from around the world before falling during the showjumping component.
But luckily for the minor royal, who won silver at the London 2012 Olympics, the fall was a minor one and she quickly brushed off any discomfort sustained.
Zara was riding ten-year-old horse Class Affair for the competition, which she last competed in in 2017 where the equestrian also fell.
As the Tindall family appeared to enjoy a country day out, Zara’s brother Peter Phillips and sister-in-law Autumn were spotted at a different kind of sporting event.
The couple joined the Queen and Prince Charles at the Highland Games in Braemar, Scotland, where locals partook in the likes of hammer throwing and tug of war.
